Stay on the lifts until you take the time and effort to learn how to do this type of thing safely.
Yeah i am. I'm not gonna go straight to back-country riding when i get there. I'll hit some of the harder marked runs and get a feel for the mountain, then if i feel comfortable, i'll try see if someone can take me down the delirium. Can you tell me some stuff? What would you need a shovel for? And what does a avalanche beacon do? Do avalanches happen a lot there. How would you use a shovel to dig yourself out?
