If you are a strong skier wanting to extend yourself, this is your chance. Steep skiing and introductory ski mountaineering is what this course is all about. Ice axe and crampon use, abseiling and avalanche awareness are essential skills once you push yourself into steeper terrain.
Our private Black Peak Hut offers access to some of the best backcountry ski & snowboard terrain in the Southern Lakes area. Part of the course may also utilise the excellent and accessible terrain of the Remarkables near Queenstown. This is the perfect classroom to learn to use mountaineering equipment efficiently to allow for more technical ski touring objectives. Learn the techniques that will keep you safe.
