The  Back Corrie Workshops are aimed at experienced Skiers and Snowboarders – those competent on black runs and seeking a better understanding of back country access and safety in relation to the Nevis Range Back Corrie area. The Workshop is designed to help individuals become more familiar with the Back Corries topography, entrances and lines (including potentially some of the less well known gems) and will introduce basic concepts and an understanding of back country skiing and boarding. It will also help individuals to explore where they may benefit from further and more formal training.
