"Tignes & Val d'Isere  The end of January is the perfect time to ski.  By now there should be great snow, cold temperatures and lots of places to explore.

 

The aim of this course is to find the best snow EVERY day!!!  We will still work on your skills where and when required but we ain't gona stand around talking about it too much!

 

There's always room for improvement so there'll be some coaching too, to get the most out of your experience. 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 tuition. 6-7 hours on snow per day. Instructional guiding, Off-piste mountain skills & technical skiing skills. 
  • Avalanche safety equipment, Transceiver shovel, probe (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 - Maybe a skin over the back to find some freshies! 

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 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 for the day/s IF we use them.
  • Bring a back pack, capable of carrying avalanche safety equipment, 25l.   For touring, approx 30l - 40l.
  • 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 transceiver, shovel and probe.
