GLACIER SKI COURSE
Take your ski touring to the next level by learning all about skiing in glaciated terrain. Glacier formation, route finding, roping for glacier travel and crevasse rescue are all covered in this three-day course which takes place in the spectacular Spearhead Range. This trip is off Island to take advantage of the heavily crevassed terrain in the Coast Mountains.
If you don't own your own touring gear, Ski Tak Hut offers 50% off rentals for all Island Alpine Guides customers while on one of our trips.
You should be an advanced skier or snowboarder in natural snow conditions to sign up for a posted trip. If your skiing ability is less than this, please get in touch so that we can create a compatible group for you.
