BC Tour with NAC

BC means backcountry. Backcountry means the places on the mountain that aren’t the groomed runs.
When you go into the backcountry it’s a good idea to take some equipment with you to help you if there’s an avalanche.
This is a probe. You can use it to poke the snow and find people who are buried.
You can also find people with this thing called a beacon.
And this is a shovel with a retractable handle. You can use it to dig people out of the snow.

The BC tour started with a stretch. Then they took the lifts up to the top of the mountain. Then they rode across the mountain and into the backcountry.
