Join us for a fun-filled, supportive and educational weekend at Mount Washington. Spend two full days skiing and riding in the backcountry while learning about avalanche safety, decision-making, route planning and group dynamics, all to help empower you to plan your own backcountry trips.
Accommodation is not included, however once we have a full group, we will help facilitate shared accommodation if this is something participants would like to include as part of the weekend's experience.
If you don't own your own touring gear and would like to try it out, Ski Tak Hut offers 25% off rentals for all Island Alpine Guides customers while on one of our trips.

All Island Alpine Guides courses and trips take place in an outdoor, wilderness environment. This means that as a participant you will be encountering various risks, dangers and hazards some of which include avalanches, cornices, crevasses, cliffs, trees, creeks, rockfall, difficult travel conditions, weather, illness, equipment failure, wild animals, becoming lost as well as the possibility of mistakes being made by IAG guides and instructors. To participate in these activities you will be required to read and agree to our waiver as part of the registration process. You will also be required to sign the waiver at the start of the course or trip. In doing so you will waive or give up certain legal rights including the right to sue or to claim compensation following an accident.

Lift tickets $52.00
Specially priced lift tickets for the duration of your guided course or trip. If you do not have a season pass or a ticket of your own, you must purchase this from us to take part.
