"Tignes & Val d'Isere  Mid March is the perfect time to ski.  All the snow is here, the weather isn't so baltic and there's 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 - Ski touring (skin) into the backcountry to find untracked snow and have an adventure.

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.
  • 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.
