To take part in this program, you must have a previous experience of touring, steady off-piste skiing on all types of snow (powder, crust, moist and blown-out snow) and a good level of physical training. You will be skiing up to 8 hours a day, including 3-5 hours of ascent.
I start this course with orientation day that we will spend on Gudauri resort, to freshen up skills of saving injured from avalanche, have a small briefing, where I will tell about the current snow situation and our plans for the following week, go though one of the easy routes within the limits of the resort for acclimatization and gear check-up. In the evening we will start off to Kazbegi region, where our program starts from.
This program is ideal for those who decided to make a progress in ski-touring and feel great backcountry freedom and independence in the mountains.
