OFF-PISTE EXPLORE - SAINTE FOY TARENTAISE
COURSE DATE: 9th MARCH 2020 PRICE: 590 €uros MAX GROUP SIZE: 6
Our Explore course follows a ski safari type format where we ski in a different resort on most days. Starting in Sainte Foy then conditions depending we have the choice of all the surrounding resorts, Les Arcs, La Rosiere, Val d'Isere, Tignes and La Plagne.
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 not included:
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.
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.
