Off-Piste

Skills development for off-piste skiing

For skiers that want to get away from the pistes,  these courses cater for large ranges of ability and experience from skiers making their first slides into the world of off piste skiing, to accomplished off-piste skiers that want to improve, ski with others of a similar ski ability, and explore further.

Different groups available for ‘Frontside’ off piste skiers through to expert/elite skiers.

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”

Journey into magical off piste with skill and confidence

Minimum requirements for this course:
Good intermediate skiers who can ski all black runs AND ski off piste between pistes or at the side of pisted runs – level 4+

Skiers with a good level of fitness able to ski off piste for 3 hours per day for 5 days

What’s the difference between the Off-Piste and Backcountry courses?

Off-Piste is half days with Snoworks instructors and Backcountry is full days with a combination of Snoworks instructors and local ski guides enabling you to ski much further away from the pistes.
