Join the Rockaboo team for a week of helicopter assisted ski touring.
This 5 day trip starts at the Rockaboo Lodge in McBride where you will review companion rescue before heading into a comfortable backcountry alpine hut that will be the launch point for 3 days of ski mountaineering in an awesome glaciated environment.
Catered and guided, this is one of the premier ski opportunities of the season.
Level 1 is an introduction to traveling in glaciated terrain and as a review of the latest equipment and travel strategies as per international standards.
Level 2 is for those with a solid foundation of basic knots and ropework. We’ll progress into belayed climbing, lowering, rappelling and more advanced anchor construction as well as further instruction on weather analysis and coaching on alpine movement skills.
The Alpine Training Ascent is offered as an add-on to the the Alpine Skills training program.
Level 1: Climb a classic alpine objective that is suitable for a first alpine climb or a great place to practice new skills. Prerequisite Glacier Travel and Crevasse Rescue level 1
Level 2: Apply the skills from the Glacier Travel 2 and Crevasse Rescue 2 training by climbing a classic alpine objective that is suitable for an intermediate alpine climb involving more advanced ropework and movement skills.
