Tasman Saddle mountaineering course

IFMGA Mountain Guide, Gaz has just returned from a 7 day Mountaineering course with Peter and Kristiina from Finland who wanted to learn and practice in particular, traveling on glaciers, glacier travel rope work and  techniques, crevasse rescue and avalanche conditions knowledge.

Conditions for traveling around the NZ glaciers this season is fantastic due to snowfalls during the spring and the neve is very well filled in.
