AK Section - Avalanche Awareness Course


Avalanche Awareness Course

Course Coordinator: Andrew Mackintosh - [email protected]

A great opportunity to find likeminded people and enjoy some spring ski touring adventures with them.

The meet will be based at Tukino Lodge on Mt Ruapehu and offers exploration of Ruapehu's wild side, away from the busy ski fields. Please note this is not a led trip, so when on the meet, groups will need to be able to look after yourselves when away from the lodge.

Avalanche Awareness Course is run in conjunction with the Ski Touring Meet.
