Matron of the Mountains – Avalanche Awareness [OENZ]

For years women have been climbing mountains and pushing the limits and boundaries of what they’re capable of. I choose the title Matron of the mountains as Matron commonly refers to a woman being in charge of something.

So take charge of your adventures, your goals and achievements. Come try something out of the box and out of the bush line. Come learn the skills to climb a mountain with me.

My name is Sarah and I have been mountaineering for 8 years. I haven’t climbed anything notable but I have climbed some awesome challenges that leave me in awe of myself. I never realised how strong I am mentally and now physically until I started mountaineering. Not because I was trying to climb hard technical climbs, but because I was pushed out of my comfort zone, into situations that called on me to dig deep.

This year I am running women-only mountain courses to help give the ladies a stepping stone into the mountains on your own terms and at your own pace.

The courses are held in Canterbury in the Craigieburn’s and will be the first step to getting into the mountains. There are two courses

  1. Matron of the Mountains: 2-day  Alpine training
  2. Matron of the Mountains: Avalanche Awareness

These are the foundation skills you need to get into mountaineering or hiking above the bush line/in the snow.
