Learn mountain safety skiing off piste

An extension of our existing Off-Piste, Backcountry, Backcountry Access and Ski Touring Courses. For skiers that want to expand their knowledge and skill in the safety aspects when skiing off-piste under professional supervision.  Double up with an Off-Piste course on the other half of the day for the perfect combination!

After attending the course skiers will have a greater awareness and understanding of off-piste safety whilst skiing under the guidance of qualified mountain guides and instructors. The course does not qualify skiers to ski off-piste either by themselves or with friends, relations or colleagues but to improve the ability to self manage whilst skiing under professional supervision.

Different groups available for ‘Frontside’ off piste skiers through to expert/elite skiers.
