Backcountry Skiing Course

Guided Backcountry Skiing, NZ
16 June 2014

 

  • Big mountain course for you to learn to be self-sufficient for touring
  • Learn how to stay safe when on big mountain slopes and glaciated terrain
  • This course is big on learning and big on experience while skiing big terrain!
     
   
 

We provide you with up-to-date techniques and safety skills for travelling in New Zealand’s high mountains.

You will share the experience with other people hungry for knowledge and skills and at the end of the course you will have the skills to plan and explore backcountry skiing and/or snowboarding terrain almost anywhere in the world.

   

We helicopter into a high alpine hut in our national parks where you will get to ski some of our highest and biggest glaciers while on the course.
