February to mid-May
Learn ski touring skills for skiing and skinning in challenging conditions. Become efficient using the rope, ski crampons, boot crampons, ice axe and avalanche safety gear. We look at route planning using available resources for multi-day ski tours. Manage the risks and learn to deal with a survival situation or rescue in case of no available helicopter rescue.
This course is best followed after an Avalanche course and ideally a Glacier travel course as well. With that background you’ll have the basics of travel in avalanche terrain, using the rope, route planning and navigation covered.
