Day Skiing
Day trips, operated throughout the Alpine National Park, include skills development and a short tour. The tour destination will be influenced by the experience of the group and  prevailing weather conditions.
              
Ski Touring
Overnight trips allow us to venture further into the Alpine National Park and experience a stay near a mountain hut or snow camping or snow caving. A balance is struck between pack touring and skiing from a base camp. Weather navigation and safety considerations are discussed combined with snow craft activities where appropriate. Opportunities for telemarking, short side trips and photography abound. The tour destination will be influenced by the experience of the group and prevailing weather conditions.
