Ski the Steeps

NEW for 2021 the Steeps courses is an extension from our Off-Piste Backcountry courses for those that are keen to ski steeper terrain in smaller tailored groups. The course is split between developing skills for safe ‘steep’ skiing and expert guiding from Snoworks coaches that are totally familiar with the routes and area so safety is always the number one priority.

The whole concept of the ‘Steeps’ course is to provide expert coaching and expert leadership where safety is never compromised.

The course is designed for very competent off-piste skiers. Snoworks level 6 and 7 with a maximum of 4 people per group.
