Intro to Ski Touring - Adult Beginner Image
If you are already able to ski and fancy a try at skiing the untracked virgin powder snow you've seen by the pistes then this day is for you. We'll use our skis to access backcountry peaks and explore the area. Ability to ski red runs in control and be able to ski uphill for an hour is required. We will cover how to fit and remove climbing skins, the use of ski crampons, efficient skinning technique and journey planning. We also give an introduction on how to find and recover an avalanche transceiver and how to minimise risks when skiing off-piste.
