5 NIGHTS | 4 DAYS ON SNOW
NEW ZEALAND SNOWBOARD TOURS
Riding in un-patrolled backcountry terrain offers the best untracked powder you can find, but it does come with an increased factor of risk. On this camp we spend 4 days in the field touring and Heliskiing with qualified IFMGA/NZMGA backcountry guides and will focus on how to reduce these risks while still having a great time and scoring those epic turns we all live for. At the end of the course you will have an understanding of snow safety and avalanche hazard. You will also receive certification ratified and accepted by the NZ Mountain Safety Council. Through a combination of practical tutorials with guides, backcountry touring and Heli access riding this course aims to show you how to select safe terrain, use backcountry equipment, interpret weather, plan a trip, manage a group and most importantly how to have a great day out in the backcountry.
