Intermediate Ski Touring

This is a guided day where the aim will be to have an adventure and find the best snow possible to ski. While tips may be given to improve technique, that is not the primary aim of the day. We will aim to meet at 09:00 and finish around 16:30.

You will need to bring the following with you:

Skis (with touring bindings), skins, poles, couteaux (ski crampons), touring boots.
Warm clothing
Rucksack (25-30L)
Packed lunch (with a drink)
Spare gloves
Duvet Jacket
Shovel, transceiver, probe (these can be borrowed for the day at no extra cost if needed - just let us know in advance)
Mask (in case of using shared transport)

NB: This day is not suitable for split-boarders.

You will be contacted the day before to confirm the meeting point, and will be given the details of your Guide for the day.
