Description

Stretching for 260 kilometers through northeastern Utah, the Wasatch Range is the perfect place for an immersive ski mountaineering course!

Designed for intermediate backcountry skiers, this course will teach you the technical skills necessary for making high-consequence ski mountaineering descents.

Starting on the very first day, we will go over avalanche mitigation strategies, practice skiing on steep terrain and go over fundamental mountaineering skills (such as tying knots, setting up hitches and going over all of the devices).

On the second day, we will learn and practice some basic ski mountaineering skills, including anchoring, belaying a skier, managing steep entrances and rappelling.

Our third and final day will be the highlight of the course. Taking place against the backdrop of the stunning mountain scenery and incredible views of the Wasatch Range, we will put our newly acquired skills to the test.

The day will be spent heading out to various different spots and trying some challenging and highly technical ski mountaineering rope work and snowpack assessment.

So what are you waiting for? Book now for this informative and scenic 3-day ski mountaineering course in the wonderful Wasatch Range!

Thank you explore-share for a wonderful via feratta experience. We have been wanting to learn for a long time but don't have the facilities in Scotland. The guide Mitja was extremely helpful and knowledgeable, answering all my many questions and providing advice. On the day head to take another group but he quickly arranged another guide Borut, who was brilliant. We had a fantastic morning learning via ferrata at Hvadnik in the gorge. It gave us the confidence to later hire our own equipment and go out in Mojstrana. Altogether a five star + experience. Thank you.
