Like most people around the world at the moment, we at Aspiring Guides are hunkered down in our homes during a period of lockdown. However, that doesn't mean we're twiddling our thumbs! Working with our guides, we've developed a series of online courses. If we spend the time studying now, we'll be ready to play later! Structured as small group web based meetings, you'll have direct interaction with your guide to ask questions and workshop a variety of topics, including:

  • Avalanche Awareness (Intro)
  • Avalanche Refresher (Advanced, for those who have taken this course with us already)
  • Weather 1 - a focus on weather theory
  • Weather 2 - forecasting tools
  • Navigation
  • Trip planning

Plus more to come! From the comfort of your couch, home office, or kitchen table, use this opportunity to smash FOMO and up-skill instead.

These courses are for anyone who can answer 'yes' to one of the following questions:

  1. I am keen to refresh my knowledge from a previous course 
  2. I am keen to gain new knowledge 
  3. I am keen to fast track the theory component of my next course with Aspiring Guides so I can get into the mountains faster!! 
  4. I would like to chat directly to and learn from an NZMGA guide who can offer extensive experience
  5. I am downright bored during the lock-down and don’t want to cyber search for hours only to find out I was learning rubbish 

For more information about other lessons coming up check out the website and Facebook page. You can book directly on our webpage, and feel free to get in touch with any questions. We look forward to catching up with you online!
