Snowmobile Riding clinics with the Boondockers Crew!

Feb 9th and Feb 10th we are hosting three of the Boondockers for a motorized riding clinic in Halfway, OR.  This will be in combo with the Halfway Backcountry Ride hosted by WAC Motorized Ambassador Mandy James.  Join Aaron Case, Ryan Searle and DJ Osborne who will be running clinics on Friday and Saturday.  Whether you are learning how to carve pow turns, working on wrong foot forward, or dialing in your bow tie, these guys will elevate your game.  Cost $225/person/day.  Must be 16 years or older to register.

All of the money generated from these courses goes into the WAC General Fund to pay for Avalanche Forecasting, website and weather station maintenance and more.  You get a great course and support your local non-profit avalanche center.  If you have any questions please get in touch with Development Director Rex Stanley at
