Kickstart a Career In The Backcountry
Training to become an experienced backcountry skier is hard work but one of the most rewarding courses out there. Over the 12 weeks you will train on and off-piste to develop your skiing ability as well as build confidence under the rope. This training will take you on adventures into the backcountry, teaching you the fundamentals of ski touring with skins, as well as how to read and understand the snow and terrain around you to become a safe and effective backcountry guide.
