Spring Ski Mountaineering Camps

During these four day progressions, professional and certified ski guide course instructors will cover 
fundamental mountaineering skills such as: ice axe use, boot and ski crampon use, self 
arresting, anchor and belay rappel techniques, glacial travel, mixed climbing, steep skinning and 
downhill skiing techniques. 

To maximize learning and give each student as much one-on-one time with the guide/instructor as 
possible, we keep these courses small and limit the number of participants to four students. Course 
locations and chosen ski venues are dependent on snow and avalanche conditions at the time of 
the course, but will be loosely based out of the Crested Butte, Colorado backcountry. Course may 
contain some additional costs such as snowcat ‘bumps’ to bigger terrain, overnight camping food, 
etc., if participants and instructors agree on the appropriateness of these options.
