One Day Experienced Off Piste Guiding / Instruction
For borders and skiers with a decent level of off piste experience we focus more on getting to the best and safest snow as well as mountain safety training, but don’t be shy of a few technique pointers along the way to keep you progressing with backcountry knowledge and experience.
Our UIAGM Mountain Guides and Instructors are all hand picked and numbers have grown organically with the company demand. Mostly of a more mature age where experience and knowledge plays a key role (but in no way sacrificing fitness or a sense of adventure of course). Mainly family men/ women, great at instilling confidence and serious about their off piste, finding best and safest snow, some hidden gems and making the day an off piste technique, kit and terrain learning experience in a fun environment.
