5/3 SOLD OUT - Intro to Ski Touring

The course is aimed at those who have on-piste experience but wish to move into the backcountry! The day will have an emphasis on skill acquisition, and this will be delivered whilst in the context of a simple ski tour. Typical venues for these days include Geal Charn in the Drummochter Pass or the Lawers range above Loch Tay. During the day topics covered will include equipment familiarisation and use, ascending techniques (including the use of skins, heel risers and ski crampons), efficient travel, safe travel, and basic avalanche search and rescue techniques using transceiver, shovel and probe.

This course provides excellent preparation for our guided ski touring days.
