Highlights

 
     

    Experience ski touring in Sweden with this beginners course in the area of Mount Kebnekaise.

    The perfect location to discover ski touring is the Kebnekaise mountain resort. This stunning area, right in the heart of Lapland, hosts Sweden’s highest summit (2104 m). Kebnekaise is great for beginner as well as advanced ski tourers. The area is filled with accessible peaks. In addition, plenty of easy slopes allow learning at the ideal pace.

    These four days will give us the opportunity to cover many different topics, amongst which are the following:
    – Improvement of skiing and ascending techniques,
    – Information about snow and avalanches, safety techniques, using a beeper;
    – Equipment knowledge,
    – Orientation and maps.

    During the evening, warmed up by an open fire, we will discuss everything we learned and experience in the day. In addition, we will talk about the adventures to come on the next day. My goal is to help you improve your technique and enrich your knowledge. You will then be more independent on the slopes. Of course not forgetting to enjoy and have fun!
