Backcountry / Off-Piste / All-Terrain

7 years a go I was bought a DVD called "Ultimate Control" by Phil Smith from Snoworks Ski Courses, which became my go to DVD to watch . A totally simple to understand philosophy of how to deal with everything all-mountain skiing can throw up at a skier. Then, 4 years a go I plucked up the courage to join my 1st Snoworks course in St Anton. From there onwards it's been a great journey of learning simple to interpret techniques and mindsets eventually resulting in the confidence to go out and use a well loaded bag of tools (so to speak).

 

We're currently skiing around the Chamonix region with a guide a few of you may well know, Richard Mansfield, no instruction just pure guiding we are left to work out what to do and how to deal with many changing types of snow and aspects of terrain as it continually changes.

 

The purpose of this posting is to thank all the Snoworks instructors that have coached me in the past as now, finally, I can say "we are skiing the mountain with ultimate control" happily and confidently .

 

I hope there are other skiers out there that feel equally as liberated as I do. Enjoy!

All-Terrain / Off-PIste

20/01/2017

The first time I went on a Snoworks course I remember clearly Phil Smith, Doirector of Snoworks asking what I wanted from it. I said I wanted to ski like I snowboard. Snowboarding was fun. There were no rules - we didn't all do tight, identical S's down the mountain, and it was a physical thing instead of a litany of unweighting one ski and then the other, and a host of other complex instructions.

 

Phil delivered - skiing became a physical thing I could do, and now I ski like I snowboard. All over the mountain, not caring about making correct turns but caring about getting around under control while having fun!

All-Terrain

I have done a couple of Snoworks courses, the most recent with my friend Michele a couple of years ago training with Emma Carrick-Anderson. It was hard work practising the off piste work in deep powder and I felt I could not get fit enough to really benefit from further courses.

 

I have just come back from Andorra where it snowed and then snowed more the last 2 days combined with high winds. It was at this point I realised just how much I had gained from the Snoworks course.

 

We had powder on the piste which I felt more confident skiing through. I nearly enjoyed skiing in the most dreadful of weathers when previously I doubt I would have gone out and skied. Finally the exhilaration when having got split up by a misunderstanding and had to make my way back on my own with NO visibility down a red slope that had turned to knee deep powder was amazing.

 

I continue to recommend you.

We wanted to thank you for an excellent week & pay a huge compliment to Nick Quinn the Snoworks instructor. We will definitely be back and really enjoyed Nick's guiding/instruction.

 

Nick struck the perfect balance between professionalism & fun, plus managed to make it equally enjoyable for everyone.

 

Wonderful stuff! We all learned a lot from Nick who did everything he could to find us the very best skiing.
