On this multi day adventure we will ski tour through the newly established Katahdin Woods and Waters National Monument.  Throughout the 5 days you will be exposed to varied terrain, while building on winter camping skills, avalanche awareness, and skiing technique.  In addition, this ski tour fully integrates a Leave No Trace Trainer Course during the course of a five day expedition.  The Leave no Trace Trainer Course is a vital component of the nationwide Leave No Trace program. Participants receive introductory training in Leave No Trace skills and ethics across the span of 16 hours. Trainers are then eligible to conduct our third level of training, called Awareness Workshops, which are designed for the general public to learn, practice and promote Leave No Trace.  (Food, camping gear, transportation, and materials included)
