Trip details:

Day 1

Foundation of freeride and ski touring is avalanche awareness. We will do a full day avalanche skills training (read more under avalanche training workshop).  At the end of the day we will do a run or two on skis with an instructor to improve your technique on the slopes.


Day 2

Ski touring is divided in two stages- Ascent and descent. First we need to climb up and to do it fast and efficient there are certain techniques for different terrain. We can quickly burn too much energy on the climb up, so we will focus on the right techniques on the turns. We are aware there are certain versions of the turn that work for each person, so your guide will work on that with every individual. When we reach the top the fun part starts. Being efficient on the transition from climb to ski is an art in ski touring. Taking the skins of, store them correctly, put your Splitboard together can cause some problems and some laughs as well! ☺ Skiing all kind of snow is the next stage and to be honest there is only one way to learn this- skiing and more skiing.

Day 3-5

During first two days you will get lots of knowledge and it is best to go out and do it on the field all over again. New terrain, different snow, weather and new mountain vistas each day with a skilled guide will give you the opportunity to learn as much as possible in relatively short time. You can decide to cut the course short and do a one extra guided day to improve your skills in practice or take some time and take 3 more days to explore the amazing surroundings, do a different tour every day and put your knowledge into practice!
