This international award trains and assesses candidates in the skills required to guide climbing (including the coaching of lead climbing) skiing and mountaineering on rock, snow & ice, and in alpine terrain. It is administered by the BMG to the standards set by the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations (IFMGA). The Guide’s carnet is an extensively used professional award.
This is a 2-day resit following deferral in 2019. The aim is to spend the 2 days on technical touring ground based from the Chamonix valley. Ideally we can complete the test on teh Sunday/Monday but weather and conditions at the time might mean we have to be flexible. We can meet on the Saturday evening to discuss plans.
The course cost includes all assessors expenses.
Please bring with you:
- logbook with all relevent experience gained since the 2019 test, signed by fully qualified (min 3 years) supervising guide.
- Suitable equipment for technical ski touring including mountaineering and glacier travel.
