Are you a backcountry skier and want to progress to the steeps? There are certain techniques we use to manage steep terrain on skis. These consist of managing sluffs, using the rope, safe positioning, the dolphin turn and many more. Join us to get this skillset so you can feel more comfortable and confident in the steeps. On each day of the program, we will ski a steep couloir.
