Be Prepared For Wild Terrain
The essentials for entering the Alpental Back Bowls.
The Alpental Back Bowls and Backcountry can be the highlight of your day, but it can quickly become just the opposite. Preparing yourself for skiing or snowboarding in this wild terrain is essential to your safety, and the safety of others.
More Hazards & Risk
Our Back Bowls terrain is rugged. This area is not managed or controlled for avalanches to the same extent as terrain in the developed ski area and includes more hazards and increased risk. This risk — complete with hazards such as large cliffs, terrain traps, obstacles, changing snow conditions, creeks, and holes — requires respect, knowledge, and preparation.
