Introduction to Backcountry Skiing

26 August - 29 August

The NZAC Intro to Backcountry Skiing Course (IBSC) is a four-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.

Please be aware the Cheeseman and Canterbury terrain is much more challenging than the Pisa Range 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.
