Is this Camp For Me?
Intermediate

This camp is open to people with strong all-round backcountry skiing experience. Previous mountaineering experience is an asset but not mandatory. You must have a good level of fitness, be able to comfortably ski the equivalent of blue/intermediate runs at downhill ski areas, and be able to ski with a 16 – 18kg (35 – 40lb) pack for several hours.

Food, Accommodation and Guiding

Food

All food will be provided on the camp. There will be a mix of lightweight, dehydrated, but nutritious meals as well as snacks, fruit and vegetables to keep you properly fuelled on your adventure.

Accommodation

Accommodation for this camp will be in the form of premium Mountain Hardwear tents provided by the Club.  

Guiding

Our ACMG certified ski guides will ensure your journey across the traverse is both safe and enjoyable. Our guides will be welcome to answering questions about the region as well as everything from ski technique to gear. The maximum ratio of guides and experienced ACC amateur leaders to participants will be 5:1 to ensure participants can travel at a pace which is right for them and have the chance to ask questions.
