|Highland Powder Skiing frequently asked questions.|
Proficiency in deep snow is not necessary for this holiday. Our guides are ready to teach novice powder skiers and to help experienced skiers who want
to improve their technique.
First time skiers should be strong intermediates. They should b able to ski the black diamond runs at major lift serviced areas in control - "finesse" is not necessarily needed.
We ski at a comfortable pace for the group. However, if you are tired you are more than welcome to ride in the cat and rest for a while. There is also the option of having an extra guide if needed.
Snow and Weather Conditions
Clothing and Equipment
We have specialized powder skis available for rent. These skis make skiing powder snow and especially adverse snow conditions easier and more enjoyable. Skis must be equipped with ski brakes, safety straps are not allowed.
We suggest that you bring a small pack to carry extra gloves, sweater, sun protection, etc. This pack can remain in the Snowcat for your convenience during the day.
