At: Three Valleys, France
Get started off piste!
Aimed at skiers looking to venture off the beaten track for the first time, or with limited experience off-piste.
Want to start leaving tracks in the powder?
Keen to leave the crowded pistes behind?
This is the week for you…
With 6 full days of instruction & guiding we will cover the skiing skills needed to survive & have fun off piste. In addition we will look at avalanche safety & rescue procedure, and hopefully begin to understand where the best snow might be.
This week is mostly ‘gravity-assisted’ ie we will use lifts to go uphill & ski down – however to access the best snow we may do some short sections of walking/skating.
The Ski areas
From our base in Brides-les-Bains we have lift access to Meribel, at the heart of the 3 Valleys lift system. This area has a multitude of great off-piste, from very gentle to very steep, and is perfect for getting used to the variety of conditions encountered off piste.
For confident piste skiers. To get the best from this course you should be happy linking short turns down most red runs in good conditions.
6 days instruction & guiding, 7 nights half-board hotel accommodation (twin share).
