The winter in the mountains can be insanely beautiful - but it can also be cold and challenging. During this long weekend, we will take you through everything a ski expedition entails. We start with the necessary theory at Bygdin before packing up the pulk, going through some practical exercises outside the hotel, then heading out into nature. Here, the days will be spent putting theory into practice. We practice orientation, safe route choices, we eat lunch along the day's stages, discuss what we have learnt, before we set up camp in the afternoon where we go through tent and camp routines, safe use of petrol burners, and more. We adjust the days according to weather and wind conditions to get the most out of the weekend.
NOTE! The first course from the 16. - 19. February will be held in Norwegian, while the second course from the 23. - 26. February will be held in English (if we receive bookings from international participants on this departure). If we only receive bookings from Norwegian participants on the second course also, this will be held in Norwegian.
