Recently I had the opportunity to go ski-dooing with a bunch of ladies from the Betties snowmobile club. I have always wanted to do some winter mountain exploring, but have been rather nervous since I have zero experience and didn’t know where to begin. At 39 years old, I am completely ‘Green’ when it comes to anything back country exploration. Having the chance to go with women that have the experience and know about safety was a great way to try things out and gain some knowledge. It was fantastic to learn and spend time with ladies that are eager to help and fun to be around! I noticed that safety is the highest priority with this group and that they take special care to make sure everyone is always accounted for. Emphasis was put on the buddy system and I actually saw the importance of this as different people became stuck and everyone had to help dig to get them out. And at the end of the day, I was also very impressed to see that no one was left behind. I will definitely go again and look forward to the possibility of joining the Betties in the future!!!
Thank you so much for the wonderful experience!
