NZAC ALPINE CLIMBING COURSES

 

The NZAC alpine instruction pathway starts on a local level, with many sections running multiple snowcraft courses each winter. Along with avalanche awareness courses, these courses focus on taking new participants into the mountains to gain skills, confidence and experience in the alpine environment.

Once these skills have been reinforced over multiple climbing trips (section trips ) are a great way to get this experience), our popular High Alpine Skills Course is the next step. Run between November-January at Aoraki Mt. Cook National Park, these courses are led by top mountain guides and teach the skills needed for steep and crevassed terrain.
