“I have just returned from your Off-Piste Course and 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 could ski that”

“Your Off-Piste Course opened my eyes to what is possible. Prior to this off-piste course, having only skied a little off-piste, I thought it was beyond my reach. Now, 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”
