Intro to Backcountry Skiing Course

2 September - 7 September

The New Zealand Alpine Club Introduction to Backcountry Skiing Course (IBSC) is a five-day course designed for strong intermediate (or better) skiers with excellent aerobic fitness wanting to get a good grounding in ski touring so they can go experience the winter backcountry by themselves!

This is not a ‘learn to ski’ course- you should be able to comfortably (but not necessarily stylishly) ski steep ungroomed slopes on a ski field. Telemarkers are welcome but must be VERY high skiing standard for this course.
