Off-piste Skills & Development

There really is no greater experience than learning how to ski off-piste. The sense of adventure and heightened moments of exhilaration as you search out and then descend the fresh snow rarely disappoints even the most experienced of snowsports enthusiast.

Our team of instructors can introduce you to this area of our sport and help you learn all about staying safe as you venture off the beaten track. No other area of skiing requires such a solid grounding in the safety aspects to keep yourself and other mountain users free from harm. If you are a strong intermediate or an advanced skier, we provide a package that will help you learn all about this truly exciting alternative to skiing on the main slopes.

It is necessary to have the correct equipment and as a minimum we insist that all clients must have appropriate skis, a transceiver, shovel and probe. For sessions involving a greater exposure to risk we also require all clients to have an Airbag system. We can provide all of this equipment on a cost price rental basis.
