From Avoriaz Alpine Ski School:

Join our experienced instructors for a multi-day off-piste clinic helping you safely explore the mountains and improve your skills and knowledge of backcountry skiing.

This is a 3-day performance clinic for advanced skiers. You must be competent on black runs and have a minimum of 8-10 weeks of skiing experience and be in good physical condition.

This course includes an introduction to ski-touring and you are not expected to have previous experience of this, although there will be plenty to learn even if you have been touring a few times before.

Open to confident black run skiers with 8-10 week of skiing experience. So if that’s you, what are you waiting for? The course offers the opportunity to learn one of the greatest feelings this planet has to offer: powder skiing!

The course is about expanding your playground away from the crowds on the pistes.

And so the off piste course includes but is not limited to:

  • Forecasting and planning
  • Group management
  • Snowpack analysis
  • Avalanche Bulletins
  • Navigation, line choice and route planning
  • Tuition on how safety equipment works
  • Emergency procedures
  • Ski touring/split boarding
