Prices vary depending on type of lesson (group or individual) and between companies, which is why it’s best to speak directly to the company and see which offers you what you are after, whether it’s backcountry touring, beginner group lessons or something in between as a refresher for regulars. We recommend booking early, especially on peak weeks.
