Backcountry Abroad

This year we will be Back country skiing from different resorts in the Aosta valley and we intend to spend at least one night in a mountain refuge as part of our tour or have at least 1 helicopter uplift on each of the weeks. A new departure this year is a week’s skiing in Iceland. True adventure and no uplift, earning every turn.

Course tuition will be for 6 days and will be a combination of piste performance and introduction to off piste skiing. As part of the course you will have the opportunity to try skinning and some ski tours. These will of course, be weather dependent. We will include at least 1 night in a Mountain hut. Participants will have the benefit of 2 coaches throughout.

Course participants will be given a refresher on Avalanche Safety and Transceiver work. Map reading will be included and the timing of ski tours and other expeditions

The course will help you to begin to explore beyond the areas served by the lifts and give you the confidence, knowledge and tools that you need to do so in safety and security.
