Skills development for off-piste skiing

For skiers who want to get away from the pistes. Snoworks have revolutionised off-piste skiing helping 1000’s of skiers easily learn the skills for off-piste skiing. A combination of cutting edge teaching techniques combined with experiencing the great off-piste these areas have to offer.

“My skiing trips will never be the same again. I have skied in places I only dreamed of and now when I go up a chair which crosses an off piste area I look down and think I can ski that”

“Opened my eyes to what is possible. I thought off-piste was beyond my reach. Now, now armed with a few simple skills I have the confidence to tackle off-piste. My skiing holidays will never be the same again. You’ve introduced me to a whole new world”
