Courses

We offer a range of Backcountry Ski Touring and Snowboarding Courses - from beginner to advanced, from 1 to 4 days.  The courses are designed for people who want to experience adventure beyond the ski area boundary.  Avalanche awareness, wilderness skills and uphill travel are all essential and there is no better location to learn them than in the backcountry around Wanaka. We gain access via the local ski fields, or you can helicopter into our private huts at Robrosa and Black Peak, where the terrain is just a step from the door !   Our professional guides will start at the beginning and teach you all the techniques you will need to travel on your own.  If you are keen on ski mountaineering we also offer more advanced courses for experienced ski tourers or split boarders.
