kgskiMy gf and I are just getting into backcountry and don't have many other people to go with. Haven't taken an AIARE class yet but I've been doing a bunch of research and feel like I am aware of the dangers out there but have only gone a few times with other experienced people so I am obviously not trying to get into any serious avy terrain by ourselves before taking some classes and getting more experience. Having said that we want to get out and do some skiing on some safer terrain to get used to using our gear and what not. Does anyone have suggestions on spots around Tahoe that are good places to start and have decent coverage? The few areas I have skied probably don't have good enough coverage at this point.
