Glacier Ski Course

8 September - 26 September

8th – 12th September | 22nd – 26th September

The NZAC Glacier Skiing Course (GSC) is a five-day course designed for strong intermediate (or better) skiers with experience skiing in steep slackcountry/backcountry terrain and with excellent aerobic fitness wanting to learn the core skills to safely ski on glaciated terrain.

Basic-level familiarity with the use of an ice axe and crampons is required, and can usually be learned from a local NZAC section snowcraft course.

This is not a ‘learn to ski’ course so ensure you meet the minimum requirements.

Telemarkers and split boarders are also welcome but must be of a high skill/experience level. Boarders must also have ski crampons as part of their touring setup just like the skiers. When you submit your registration, provide as much detail of your experience as possible, and we will run it past the instructor before confirming your spot.
