Ski tour school is a five day program for confident skiers and snowboarders with previous freeride experience of any level who would like to improve their backcountry riding skills and master the ski tour technique. The School’s major goal is teaching the ski tour technique in high mountains. Similar to the Freeride School, this program implies assessing avalanche risks through snow analysis, using avalanche sensors, discussing search methods, developing the skills of choosing the right descend line with respect to mountain relief. Ski tour school is the next step in backcountry riding which will help you take a fresh look at familiar riding regions and learn to find ideal places to descend!
Ski touring offers freeriders excellent opportunities to ride in completely new far off locations! Untouched deep snow has never been so close! Goals: Teaching the ski tour ascend techniques, teaching to use ski touring gear and take care of it, improving avalanche sensor operation skills, studying and analyzing snowpack, selecting safe lines of ascend and descend. Audience: confident skiers and snowboarders with previous backcountry riding experience. As freeride is becoming increasingly popular, those who prefer wild lands have to move further and further away from well-known tourist destinations. This is where ski touring and split board gear comes in. It helps you move not only faster, but also easier. At ski tour school, you will learn to use specialized gear. We will thoroughly study the structure of snow and avalanche risk assessment methods. You will acquire hands-on experience of selecting ascend lines and putting knowledge of mountain relief into practice. And, what’s most important, we will spend every day in a new location, finding new ski touring and freeriding opportunities. Program cost includes: two experienced instructors/guides assisting the group, rental of individual avalanche gear (avalanche sensor, shovel and probe), transfers. Scope of the program: improving riding technique; basics of avalanche safety; avalanche rescue; organization and tactics of riding on avalanche […]
