You are a seasoned piste skier with some off piste experience, and want to brush up your off piste ski technique with a qualified ski instructor and Guide to allow you to get into the back country and start ski touring…this is where it happens!
After a very successful and fun trip to this excellent venue this January…we’re going back!
Just two tracks (and yes, they are ours!) in a beautiful north facing bowl 15min skin from the pistes…
Short, benign couloirs for learning to engage with steeper terrain
A great snow record with the resort at 2000 – 2800m, 400km of pistes linked by fast lifts allows us to access off piste in low angle bowls and tree skiing in beautiful open larch forests. This is a perfect environment to develop your off piste ski technique and be introduced to day ski touring; a wide variety of terrain angles, aspects and altitudes provides opportunities to learn regardless of weather conditions.
