Mt Hotham Ski Patrol is offering a weekend backcountry skills course.

September 11 – 13.

It will provide training in snow safety, and features an overnight camp.

It starts at 5pm on friday September 11, at Mt Hotham resort, then has a weekend of activities in the backcountry, returning at 3pm on the sunday. This will be a fantastic opportunity to learn hands on skills with experienced people from the Patrol.

Ideally people will be able to provide their own camping gear and tents, although some equipment can be arranged. Participants will need either touring skis or snow shoes.

There is room for up to 8 people to attend the course, and the cost is $300 per person.

To register, please contact David Wilson, Mt Hotham Ski patrol.
