Dave, Jo and Peter are organising an introductory ski touring trip for the coming winter (March or April 2014).

The trip will consist of 3 parts.

  1. A day in resort for people to get used to skiing again.

  2. 3 days with a guide who will instruct in the techniques of ski touring and possibly fit in an expedition.

  3. Independent ski touring - we will plan our own routes.

The trip is open to anyone with sufficient skiing experience but previous experience of ski touring is not necessary. If you are unsure about your skiing ability talk to one of the organisers.

Each guide is able to lead up to 6 participants. We hope to have enough interest to hire 2 guides.

The best time for ski touring in the Alps is late March and April but the exact date has yet to be fixed.
