Take your Ski or Snowboard Touring to the next level
If you are a strong skier or snowboarder wanting to extend yourself, this is your chance. Ice axe and crampon use, abseiling and avalanche awareness are essential skills once you push yourself into steeper terrain. This is the perfect classroom to learn about mountaineering techniques and avalanche safety to tackle more technical ski or snowboard touring objectives and big mountain descents.
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.
Alternatively this course can be extended to 5 days and run on the high glaciers around Aoraki / Mount Cook. These provide the ideal venues for gaining ski mountaineering experience in the high mountains and glacier touring. Contact us for pricing.
