Multi Day Novice Off Piste Guiding / Instruction

If you are improving your piste skiing or boarding or transitioning to off piste, we have a member of our team suitable for you. Perhaps You want to experience the joy of off-piste skiing or snowboarding but you don’t have lots of experience? Our Instructors are usually a little younger than our heli guides and their focus is on learning in a fun and high energy environment to leave you feeling confident and wanting more. By keeping your instructor for several days you will be amazed how quickly the progression curve is and between the technique tips there will be plenty of fun riding /skiing to practice what you are learning. The same as the One Day Novice Off Piste Guiding / Instruction but a more intense programme of mountain safety and off piste technique training and guiding into the back country. We will also make suggestions throughout the week based on conditions and ability level to incorporate some of our other offerings with your guide such as heliskiing / reverse heliskiing / ski / splitboard touring.
