Introduction to Alpine Ski Touring
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 use skis for your uphill travel as well as accessing remote and untouched snow fields. We will choose where we go on the day to get the best of the conditions and may involve going to a ski resort to use their uplift to get the most of the day. If we do that you will need to buy a ski touring lift pass (approx. £12). You must be a confident skier on Red runs minimum in all conditions. The uphill won't be huge but you need to be fit enough to skin uphill for around an hour or so.
