Core Mountain Skills is based in Mt Cook National Park New Zealand, this 5-day course will teach you the essential skills of climbing and mountain travel and how to camp/bivouac in an alpine environment. You will come away prepared for your own adventures, or ready to take up a more technical challenge.

No prior knowledge of rope systems or mountaineering is required. You need a high level of aerobic fitness for pack carrying, so a background in hiking/tramping is crucial.

The CMS also covers all the syllabus of our one-day Tune-up clinic.

The CMS is ideal training for:
  • High altitude technical trekking in Nepal/Tibet
  • General mountaineering and alpine travel, anywhere in the world
  • Non-technical alpine pass crossings
  • Undertaking a future Alpine Skills Course (ASC)
