5280 Magazine November cover issue features The Beginner’s Guide to Backcountry Skiing. The goal isn’t to teach people how to backcountry ski, instead the feature is a roadmap to the skills, places and gear people need to get out and have fun in the backcountry safely.

Nicholas Hunt, Senior Editor at 5280 Magazine shares with us where should people start and what are the next steps.

You can read the full story in the November issue of 5280 Magazine on newsstands now and at 5280.com.
