Ski Touring with British Backcountry Saturday 15th January 2022
We have teamed up with British Backcountry to offer members a Ski Touring Journey Day.
Date Saturday 15th Jan 2020
Cost £80 per person + PayPal booking fee (this includes ski touring equipment and transceivers)
Location: To be confirmed dependent on conditions
The Ski Touring Journey Day is for Intermediate & Advanced Skiers and Snowboarders.
The Ski Touring Journey Day will be an opportunity to:
- become more familiar with ski touring equipment including skins, ski crampons and different types of bindings
- master skinning technique (including kick turns)
- learn the theory of terrain choice and avalanche avoidance
- introduce avalanche transceiver searches when possible; and to be given coaching tips on your downhill ski performance.
You will need to be confident getting down a black run and have a good level of fitness.
It is likely we will ascend around 1000vertical metres so imagine climbing a munro but with a bit more weight on your feet.
It is hoped that the first ascent should not take more than two hours, although there will likely be at least two climbs in the day.
Both the ascent and descent will normally be less than 30 degrees, but the snow conditions may be variable.
You should be happy to ski in unpredictable and changeable snow, although tactics to help tackle this will be covered in the course.
Please complete the form below (it is the same one that we use for Condor so bear with us please and fill in what you can anyway!)
You will also receive a separate form by email that the Backcountry team need you to complete.
