We combine mobility skills training with medical training and long-range shooting in scenario-based exercises on a variety of terrain to meet your team’s training requirements. From backgrounds in clandestine military operations, ski mountaineering racing, ice climbing competition, and commercial guiding, we train teams how to move quickly over winter terrain. We have partnership agreements with large private properties for training areas. We can provide this training domestically and internationally with experience in North and South America and Europe.
Let us teach your team how to move faster and farther in Winter Alpine conditions.
