Description

In this three day off-piste and avalanche awareness course we show you what to look out for in order to have fun and be safe off-piste. We also show you how riding off-piste doesn’t need to be any riskier than any of your everyday activities (if you didn’t know that a red light means stop, then driving would be much more risky!).

What level of skiing skill do I need

At a minimum, you should have done 10 weeks skiing and be able to smoothly link your turns skiing down a red run and get down a black run.  You will probably have ventured off-piste next to the piste, you may have done some off-piste trips with a guide. You should be able to do a few turns in powder. It may not all be elegant but you can get around.

This course is not about extreme skiing and difficult couloirs it is about finding the best and most enjoyable snow and skiing for the group,
