Ski Mountaineering is one of the most incredible ways to enjoy the mountains in winter. With snow covered approaches and rapid ski descents, it is easier to cover more ground and potentially summit more peaks than on a similar summer mountaineering trip. This week long comprehensive ski mountaineering course covers all of the basic skills required of the winter mountaineer. In this hut based program, we will explore the numerous snow covered peaks and ski the slopes of the Wapta Icefields while teaching the curriculum of an ski mountaineering course. Strong intermediate ski skills with at least two years experience in backcountry skiing. Split boarders need to be advanced backcountry boarders due to the number of flat areas encountered while touring on the Wapta. This course is a great next step for those that have completed an AST 2 course. The trip spends 2 nights at the Bow hut and 3 nights at the Peyto hut.
