Our breathtaking Backcountry weeks stand alone as some of the most sought after off-piste ski course experiences anywhere! Using a combination of instructors and mountain guides, our all day courses are designed to give you a blend of off-piste skills development with unforgettable off-piste experiences.

We have different groups for different levels available from ‘Front-Side’ off piste skiers through to expert/elite off-piste skiers. See levels.

Another fantastic week with the Snoworks team!  Their enthusiasm, passion and sheer skill are inspirational. What a refreshing change to have such a straight forward no nonsense approach to exploring the mountain. A fantastic balance allowing people to challenge personal boundaries within a safe but testing environment. The piste is now purely a motorway to the adventure that is Backcountry!
