OFF-PISTE SKILLS - TIGNES

COURSE DATE: 7th JAN TO 11th JAN 2019  PRICE: 590 €uros  MAX GROUP SIZE: 6


"Tignes & Val d'Isere is the perfect place for early season skiing.  Whilst most resorts in the Alps have only been open for a couple of weeks, the Espace Killy will have been open for well over a month, with the season well under way at the start of this course.

 

Of course we always hope for great off-piste conditions to play in but we will also work on all aspects of your skiing to help deal with the variety of conditions you will find in the backcountry.

 

But importantly, off-piste skiing is not just about ski technique, we will develop your touring skills like route selection, up and down the mountain, snow and mountain awareness including avalanche / transceiver training."

 

 

 

Who's it for?

 

This course is for competent off-piste skiers who need to brush up on their skills, you can already ski all over the mountain but want to keep progressing and pick up a few tricks and keep up-to-date with modern skiing, equipment and techniques.
