About our Private Mountaineering Course/ Alpine Climbing Instruction Program
It is our specialty to personalize and tailor make a course to suit your previous experience as well as current wishes and requirements, either for yourself or for your group. Commonly we use the Intro or Total Alpinism course structures as a platform to customize from, however on a private mountaineering instruction course, the flexibility is there to combine teaching and guided ascent(s).
In this private tuition forum you can efficiently and quickly learn/improve your knowledge about the latest mountaineering, alpine rock and ice climbing techniques. Build your skills with one of our leading edge mountain guide instructors.

Typical venues are:
We also use Plateau hut in the Mt Cook-Aoraki region, Bonar glacier area and Mt Brewster (Haast Pass) in Mt Aspiring National Park and the Remarkables near Queenstown.
A private mountaineering instruction course is ideal to hone your technical skills to attempt the huge array of peaks of New Zealand's Southern Alps and/or the greater ranges of the world; check out our Swiss mountaineering course. It can be geared towards snow and ice or alpine rock climbing or a combination of all: this is the beauty of a customized private mountaineering course.
