It’s suitable for beginners keen to experience snow, ice and rock scrambling for the first time and regular alpine trampers wanting to refresh their skills for Alpine Hiking.
Our highly-experienced instructors will provide you with a solid grounding to increase your level of skill and knowledge. All of our Alpine instructors have New Zealand Outdoor Instructors Association qualifications (NZOIA) and our instructor to client ratio is kept at a maximum of 1:6.
NOTE: the Introduction to Mountaineering course teaches you basic skills to moving around in an alpine environment. The rope-work used is for simple security and confidence as the ground gets steeper, rather than planned use of a rope on graded Alpine routes and climbs. We can also offer technical mountaineering skills courses, including the alpine climbing skills needed to summit the Remarkables Mountains and navigate it’s exposed ridges. See our Technical Mountain Skills page or contact us for more information.
The course can be any number of days from one to five. We are happy to recommend the best content and course length for you if you contact us for more information.
