You enjoy riding the sweet white best when it's untouched and far off the next lift? Then better make sure you're prepared for backcountry adventures by knowing all about avalanche safety and freeriding technique, if you're not aiming to kill yourself, your riding buddies or anyone else on the same mountain you're on.
Such a knowledge base takes years to build, but the Scott Mission WOW Backcountry skills camps are a good start. From March 23rd-24th 2013, they treat you to a exciting weekend of touring with some of the best female mountain guides in Europe in the Valle d'Aosta near Courmayeur, on the other side of the majestic Mont Blanc (which really is as massive and impressive as you would imagine if you're standing right underneath it, instead over towering over from a plane or heli as in most photographs!).
