Glad you asked. G3 University is a free online learning platform created by G3 to help you amplify your winter backcountry experience. The ever-growing collection of entertaining and educational lessons - in both blog and video format - spans a broad spectrum of winter backcountry topics from intro level skin care tips to advanced snow travel techniques.
G3 Engineers, UIAGM/ACMG/AMGA-certified guides and G3 Team members share tips and tricks that are intended to improve/increase knowledge around all things backcountry and, ultimately maximize your fun, safety and experience.
Use G3 University lessons as an opportunity to gain perspective/insights and get you interested in learning more about the subject, or for experienced backcountry users to refresh their skills.
