OFF-PISTE ADVENTURE - TIGNES & VAL D'ISERE

COURSE DATE: JANUARY 27th and 9th MARCH 2020  PRICE: 590 €uros  MAX GROUP SIZE: 6


 The aim of this course is to find the best snow EVERY day!!!  We will still work on your skiing skills where and when required but we ain't gona stand around talking about it too much. Of course there's always room for improvement the amount of coaching will depend on the groups needs.

We place a big focus on mountain awareness.  I'll share with you how instructors and guides look at the mountain and make better decision on where and where NOT to ski!

  

 

Who's it for?

 

This course is for competent off-piste skiers who want to be shown the best off-piste the resort has to offer.  If there's tips and tricks to make you a better skier along the way, you'll get that too.

 

Whats included?

  • 5 Days on snow. 6-7 hours ski time per day. Instructional guiding, Off-piste mountain skills & technical skiing skills. 
  • Avalanche safety equipment, Transceiver shovel, probe and pack (Although it's well worth investing in these items so you get used to using your own).

Whats not included:

  • Flights, Accommodation, lift pass.  Price is for course only.

 


Itinerary:

Day 1 - Warm up ski, transceiver training. Start exploring.

Day 2 - Searching for snow, Ski Ski!

Day 3 - Ski touring (skin) into the backcountry to find untracked snow and have an adventure, Unless there's buckets of snow and no need!

Day 4 - Get in to some steeper terrain if we haven't already!

Day 5 - Play time, Option to do reverse Heli-ski which involves a long off-piste descent, get picked up by helicopter and brought back to the resort, (extra cost applies, but not too much!)

 

We will usually stop for an hour for lunch either a snack or restaurant as preferred by the group.

 

Gear: 

  • Off-piste skis with a waist width of 95-105, Ideally bring touring skis but these can be hired in resort if and when we might do some skinning.
  • Bring a back pack, capable of carrying avalanche safety equipment, Around 20l - 30l,  the latter is better for touring and with some method for carrying skis.  All this can be provided.
  • Helmet definitely recommended.

Note on airbags pack packs, these are a great added extra if you have one but by no means a substitute for knowing how to use your transceiver, shovel and probe.
