Glacier Travel Course

Once again, Girls Do Ski is stoked to deliver this stellar workshop and get you ladies out there learning the ropes from the best! This three-day course is for expert downhill skiers and riders who want to learn the ropes on how to travel on glaciated terrain, whether it be small-scale day trips or multi-day traverses. We will focus on when and how to rope up on glaciers, rappel into steeps, and practice simple to more advanced crevasse rescue techniques. A key part of this course is terrain assessment and developing the fine art of using the right tool at the right time in the right way. You are required to bring your own gear so you have a chance to learn the specifics of it and become efficient while using it. We will provide a list of what to bring so you don’t forget a thing! This camp is open to expert skiers who have at least 15 days of ski touring experience. Please ensure you know your touring gear well in order to allow you to focus on the glacier equipment. Join us on a quest for knowledge and adventure on this three-day alpine immersion extravaganza. It is open to a maximum of six participants.
