Learn the skills of safe off-piste skiing

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. Essential elements of off-piste safety are covered on the existing Snoworks Off-Piste Courses but for those that want more in-depth knowledge of the safety aspects of skiing off-piste then this course delivers.

After attending the course skiers will have a much greater awareness and understanding of off-piste safety. 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. An absolute essential if skiing off-piste in a group.

Combine the Off-Piste Safety Course with a half day Off-Piste or All-Terrain Course for all day skiing for an extra cost of £140.00. Contact the office for details.

Minimum requirements for this course:
Competent Off-Piste skiers. Snoworks level 5

Skiers with a good level of fitness to ski off piste for up to 3 hours per day for the week

Ability to get up unaided in the event of a fall
