Run in conjunction with Di Gilbert Mountaineering this course is specifically aimed at ski tourers who wish to take their sport to the next level but lack the technical knowledge to match their skiing ability. We spend two full on days in the mountain environment sniffing out the best snow and the best descents with a focus on exploring steep ground. This is not a technical ski performance course where we break down your ski technique. This is a course with emphasis on the technical aspects of ski mountaineering such as abseiling and uphill roped travel on steep ground, belayed skiing techniques, using ice axe & crampons, refining kick turn technique, whiteout navigation strategies on ski’s, an advanced companion rescue workshop and of course in the field avalanche education.
