The Mountaineer in Keene Valley, NY will host the twelfth annual Adirondack Backcountry Ski Festival the weekend of March 1 & 2, 2014.
Backcountry skiing means skiing on natural snow in natural terrain, and combines all of the elements of touring, climbing and downhill skiing into a real winter mountaineering experience.
We are excited to host SCARPA athlete Chris Davenport – one of of the world’s most accomplished big mountain skiers – at this year’s Backcountry Skifest! Among his many ski mountaineering achievements, in 2007 Chris became the first person to ski all fifty-four of Colorado’s 14,000-foot peaks in less than one year. Don’t miss what is sure to be a memorable presentation by Chris at the Keene Central School Saturday evening!
