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 alone.

Unlike longer hut to hut trips our course is all about the ‘downhill’, returning to the same resort at the end of each day.  Each ascent with skins will last from 30 minutes to 1 or 2 hours with possibly one of the bigger ascents a 3-4 hour skin.

“An amazing week. You never fail to come up with fantastic adventures for us every day. The Ski Touring Course opened up a whole new world. Outstanding!”

“Wow, the perfect bridge between backcountry and traditional ski touring. Wished I had known about this years ago”
