What Is Guided Off-Piste and Touring?

Guided Off-Piste and Touring are a great way to experience the backcountry with an experienced, UIAGM mountain guide or instructor.

You’ll encounter a variety of snow conditions and terrain; from powder fields, to tree runs, allowing you to improve your off-piste skills. Our packages offer something for every ability so you’ll experience the backcountry at your own pace. Our UIAGM mountain guides or instructors will offer technique pointers, guiding and simulation avalanche rescue training to ensure you’re fully prepared for your Non-Heli Backcountry Experiences.

Splitboarding has become hugely popular in recent years due to exciting new product development: making boards lighter, stronger and easier to use. The possibilities of travelling into the backcountry have been transformed, with snowboarders now able to access terrain that was previously hard to reach. These courses offer snowboarders a unique experience by heading deeper into the backcountry whilst learning important backcountry skills.

Our courses offer something for the aspiring split-boarder, all the way up to the splitboard experts. With Optional Helidrops, Heli pick-ups, splitboard hire and a night stay in our VHS mountain refuge – this experience can be tailored to your desires.
