Snow Trakking

I'm looking for snow tracking teacher for Jenuary next year.
i'm not sure if those are the right terms, but my intentions are to learn ice climbing and snow tracking...
I'm a rock climber, from bordering to big walls, but i don't have any contact with snow nor ice in my country, i'm looking for a course so as to learn skills and knowledge, from basic to surviving...

Any Help Anyone?

what is snow trackking?

I'm not sure what you are talking about, but if you are referring to snow-shoeing?? There's nothing to it. I taught a class this last February in Kangwondo. More can be said about how to pick a good pair than what to do with them after you put em on. Maybe you are referring to skiing? That's much more involved. I also teach skiing. It's not a cheap proposition in this country, but if you are financially viable, you are welcome to meet me in Yongpyong and Muju in the winter. Cross country skis are useless in this country, because you need a consolidated snow layer to support your base. Snow here tends to be either fresh, really cold (loose), or completely melting away(soft). Last winter was the snowiest in many years, and but this year is a La Nina year. If you are referring to ice climbing, I need a partner so you are welcome to meet me at O2 and Kugokpokpo. Again, bring your boots, crampons, tools, and a good warm waterproof pair of mitts. If you are talking about tracking someone through the snow, that's too easy. Just pull SLLS before you cross any danger areas.
