Learn the basics of Steep Skiing in the amazing mountains of Tromsø, Norway.

There are inherent risks with skiing steeper terrain: crossing an avalanche trigger zone, being in an avalanche path, terrain traps, and no-fall zones.

Elements that are covered in this course are the following:

  1. Establish steep skiing protocol: TSG visits an area that the group can assess an array of steep lines and discuss meeting points and exit strategies at a safe distance.
  2. Progress steep skiing techniques: Straight lining, jump turning, committing to a line, sliding turns, adjusting type of turns to control speed, drops. All done in microterrain.
