The perfect extension to our Off-Piste Backcountry Courses, 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 ski touring trips Backcountry Access is all about the ‘downhill’, each ‘access’ with skins will last from 30 minutes to 1 or 2 hours with possibly one of the bigger ascents a 3-4 hour skin.
Different courses available from ‘Front-side’ (level 4+) off piste skiers (Intro to Ski Touring) through to expert/elite skiers.
What an amazing week. You never to fail to come up with fantastic adventures for us every day. The Off-Piste Backcountry Access Course opened up a whole new world. Outstanding!
