Ski Touring Introduction (Age 18rs+)
Ski touring has seen a huge explosion of popularity over the last few years. With equipment getting lighter, stronger and easier to use, this is no longer the preserve of expert skiers and mountaineers. This one day course will give you a flavour of what it’s like to use skis for your uphill travel as well as accessing remote and untouched snow fields. You must be a confident skier on Red runs minimum in all conditions and have had some off-piste skiing experience. The uphill won’t be huge but you need to be fit enough to skin uphill for around an hour or so.
