Winter Skills Weekend for Ski Tourers

We can’t get to all the areas we’d like to in a single day. These trips take care of that.

This two-day linked course will be based in the Northern Cairngorms. We will look at getting around the hill safely on skis.  Elements of safe travel and navigation on skis along with transceiver and rescue work will be looked at.  There will also be plenty of ski touring in between with a bit of ski coaching for those who are looking for it.   

Participants need to arrange their own accommodation for the night. The instructors will be staying in Aviemore Youth Hostel. There are also other options in and around Aviemore. Transport and any equipment needed are included in the course fee. Participants will alternative travel / accommodation arrangements will need to meet the instructors in Aviemore or at Cairngorm Mountain car park before each day on the hill.

The weekend has no steep touring planned so is open to anyone with previous skiing experience.
