Peel Forest lies amid the foothills of the Southern Alps and offers great access to the Two Thumb, Mount Hutt and Craigieburn Ranges. Our experienced and qualified staff can offer introductory and advanced mountaineering training. Courses range from a one-day introduction to snowcraft to five day skills courses for those wanting to take their tramping and climbing to the next level. Mountaineering courses can be tailored to your needs and may include accommodation in high country huts, ski lodges or even snow caves! Peel Forest Outdoor Centre can offer unit standard assessment to schools and individuals.

Popular options for senior school groups include overnight snowcaving trips, three day mountain skills courses and four day winter camping expeditions.  All courses are flexible, so let us know what suits you and we can organise a programme to suit.
