This is a comprehensive 4-day avalanche course for walkers and climbers. This course includes and builds on our very popular 2-day introductory avalanche course. Learn everything from how to use an avalanche transceiver to technical rescues and snowpack analysis.
Located in the Craigieburn Range for days 1 & 2 we utilise this area to build the concepts and skills needed to go backcountry. Day 3 & 4 locations are determined by weather, avalanche risk and the group's preferences. Possible alternative locations include Temple Basin and the Otira Valley.
Based at David Tennant house in Arthurs Pass, we have comfortable accommodation to return to at the end of each day.
With optional transport options to get you to and from Christchurch its no problem if your travelling from out of town.
Prior experience is not necessary and all specialised gear and equipment is provided.
