EARN YOUR TURNS!

The perfect extension to our Backcountry courses, for skiers that are willing to put in a bit more work to access unbelievable off piste descents with the use of touring skis and skins.   Using the lift system to gain as much height as possible then skinning to open up a whole world of off-piste that can’t be accessed by relying only on the use of ski lifts.

Unlike ski touring trips Backcountry Access is all about the ‘downhill’, each ‘access’ with skins will last from 30 minutes to 1 or 2 hours with possibly one of the bigger ascents a 3 hour skin.

Different groups available for ‘Back-side’ off piste skiers through to expert/elite skiers.

What an amazing week. I don’t know how the guys do it, but you never to fail to come up with fantastic adventures for us every day.  Really, really enjoyed last week on the Backcountry Access course
