Intro to Ski touring
These days are aimed at those who have on piste experience but wish to move into the backcountry! The day will commonly be spent ascending a peak such as Geal Charn in the Drummochter Pass while learning skills such as; the use of skins and heel risers, skinning with ski crampons and the use transceivers, shovels and probes for avalanche rescue. This course provides excellent preparation for our other courses and at the end of the day the instructional team will be able to advise you on where to go next.
