Aimed at those who wish to learn more about safety off piste and receive avalanche search & rescue training.

This is an educational session providing you with knowledge to help you stay safe when riding off piste.

Off piste Intro

Riding off piste is much more challenging that cruising down a perfectly groomed piste. It requires you to master a new set of skills in order to keep your riding fluid and controlled as the terrain gets steeper and bumpier and when snow conditions are less than ideal. This course aims to take your riding to the next level, allowing you to make the most of the natural terrain.

Where you go for the course depends on conditions at the time, but expect to experience a few of Avoriaz & Portes du Soleil breathtaking classic off-piste itineries.

Small group sizes: Max 6 (Min 4)
Price: 2 days (2 x 3hrs) 160€
