Just joined the site, I am a 20 yr old skier looking to experience everything there is to experience in the Back Country. Although, I usually spend most of my time on-piste, and run on a XO blizzard ski, I am looking to expand my horizons and look for ways to introduce myself to the B.C scene of skiing. how exactly do I do that? I am from the Eastern United states and there is never deep powder or good snow, or steep conditions where I live; however I do ski upstate New York. anyone familiar with places I can start, with camps, and etc. I am a part of the National ski patrol (hence my s/n), so I will probably take an avy course just to be safe. furthermore, boards that will be good in on-piste conditions also. I run on blizzards carving ski currently, however I want to get a mid fat ski with the ability to rip on moguls and glades, up there at Gore mountain, but be able to have a little float to them when i comes to pow. I am thinking of the Fischers Watea series either, the 84 or 98. any comments; or suggestions would be great thanks!
