Grading of Trips
Ski trips are graded as follows:
- Easy - Suitable for people who have never skied
'cross country' style before. Skiing is on groomed trails with gentle
slopes. Some instruction may be possible depending on type of trip,
group composition and circumstances.
- Medium - Some experience and skill required. You
should be able to execute basic snowplough turns and stops. Skiing
backcountry or on groomed trails, with steeper slopes and more varied
- Hard - For the physically fit. Must be able to
travel at least 20km per day over varied terrain and off trail. The
trip may include carrying a heavy pack over steep terrain.
New members and visitors are always welcome but it is
suggested that you contact the trip leader to discuss your skiing ability
before booking on a trip. People who have never skied before should first
ski with us on one of our beginner trips.
