    On this 2 day course, we would like to teach you how to properly and safely enjoy ski touring. The course will take place in the Wasatch mountains of Utah, near Salt Lake City. this mountain range is the perfect place to not only learn about safe and proper ski touring, but to also have a great time as well.

    The hours of the course on both days are from 8 am to 4 pm. Hence giving you plenty of time to learn a great deal.

    Because this is an introductory course, you do not require any backcountry skiing experience. However, you should be in good enough physical condition to keep up with the pace of the 2 day course.

    Some examples of what will be covered during the first day of the course include the following:

    • Avalanche skills
    • Beacon rescue
    • safe route selection
    • efficient skinning
    • downhill skiing and splitboarding techniques
    • Kick turning skills and tricks

    On the second day of the course, you will be given the opportunity to tour through a bowl or peak in the Wasatch mountains. Throughout this tour, we will personally instruct you how to utilise what you learned the previous day. We will also give you additional tips and advice whenever possible.

    So if you would like to learn the skills necessary for safe and fun ski touring, send us a request. We are excited at the opportunity to teach all we know.

    PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS TRIP IS ONLY PROPOSED ON THE DATES LISTED BELOW.
