KIT CHECKS: When you are setting off on a multi-day ski tour, the guide will help check that you have all the kit that you require for the trip, but that you are not carrying too much, so as to find the ascents tougher than necessary…

EQUIPMENT NOTES: If you have any of the kit on the list above, you should bring it, even items that you do not think you will require, as you may require them for lower level routes or for training and acclimatisation days. If you require any hire equipment, please visit the kit section of the website to see the range of items we hire and their prices. Note that all the Icicle hire kit needs to be pre-paid and reserved.
