BACKCOUNTRY ACCESS TO OFF-PISTE WITH LIFTS AND SKINS
The perfect extension from our Backcountry and Off-Piste courses. Backcountry Access is for skiers that are willing to put in a bit more work in order to access unbelievable off piste with the use of touring skis and skins combined with use of the local lift system and helicopters where possible.

INFORMATION
Backcountry Access uses ski touring equipment to access unbelievable off-piste where lifts cannot get you. The whole purpose is to use the lift system to gain as much height as possible then skin from there opening up a whole world of off-piste where those that rely only on the use of lifts cannot access.

Unlike ski touring trips Backcountry Access is all about the 'downhill' - The use of skins is to access great off-piste descents. Each 'access' with skins will last a maximum of 30 minutes to 1 hour with possibly one of the bigger ascents a 3 hour skin.

For those of you who wonder what’s beyond the pistes - Heaven awaits you on a Snoworks Backcountry course. Whether you are stepping into the challenging, amazing landscape and terrain that awaits you for the first time or you're an experienced expert there is a group for you. I’ve been on quite a few of the courses in France, Switzerland Italy and Austria and the standard of teaching and guiding is the best you’ll find. Fantastic!
