Inclusive Ski Touring:
Making the Outdoors Accessible for All

Inclusive Ski Touring is focused on getting more people outside by introducing them to the joys of ski touring and split-boarding. They believe in making the outdoors accessible for all, and recognize that the financial barrier presented throughout the outdoor industry is substantially limiting for many. With this in mind, a code on the registration page is provided for all programs and events to allow anyone to waive the fee and participate free of charge.

For the 2024 Winter Season, Inclusive Ski Touring is offering group touring opportunities at Mt. Abram in Greenwood, Maine as well as at Whaleback in Enfield, NH. They will be offering Open to All Programs at these locations almost every Sunday as well as Women’s Programs every Saturday at Mt. Abram.

Open to All Program was developed to create a welcoming, inclusive, and empowering space for all individuals looking to try ski touring or split boarding as well as for those wanting to meet other individuals in the touring community.

Women’s Programs are in partnership with the Blizzard Tecnica Women2Women Program to offer weekly Women’s Tours, a Women’s Demo Day, and three women-specific Intro to Backcountry Programs. These programs are meant to bring together, connect, and empower women in the outdoors.

Intro to Backcountry Program offers courses almost every Saturday and Sunday from January to March. The aim of this program is to introduce participants to the backcountry on the East Coast, and learn about essential equipment, techniques, interpersonal skills, and special considerations when traveling outside of the resort environments.

This fully guided program is led by professional guides and is permitted through the White Mountain National Forest. This course is designed for those with some touring experience, but little to no backcountry experience. This is not an avalanche education course and it does not enter avalanche terrain.

Underrepresented Athletes Programs offer 5 inclusive program dates focused on welcoming and empowering affinity groups for underrepresented individuals in outdoor recreation looking to try ski touring or split boarding as well as for those wanting to meet other individuals with similar backgrounds in the touring community.

What makes these programs special is the supportive and encouraging attitudes of tour leaders and participants. All programs are no-drop tours, which means that you will never be rushed, left behind, or feeling like you aren’t fast enough.
