STF Abisko – Avalanche course with ski touring

There are great possibilities to experience backcountry skiing in the mountains around Abisko – if you dare to go outside pistes and snow trails. With ski skins under your skis, you can reach new slopes with pristine snow and amazing views.

Kick off with a SVELAV PRO 1 course if you have mastered offpiste skiing and want to learn how to manage your own top tours. The week starts with a day on Nuolja – a mountain that is perfect for off-piste activities and where you have an opportunity to prepare for skiing in the week ahead.

On this certified SVELAV PRO 1 course, at the Nuolja Avalanche Training Center, you learn to identify avalance-prone terrain, select safe routes, use peer rescue techniques, gather and interpret information on snow stability, use transcievers and handle probes and spades.
