Advanced All Mountain Ski Courses


Off piste ski courses run in Chamonix, France.

All ski courses are run by elite British ski instructor Mark Gear.

The advanced ski course has been designed for advanced level skiers who already have the skills required to ski most off piste snow conditions. Typically you can get around ok off piste, but are looking to consolidate & improve your off piste and deep snow skiing.

The mountains here provide great variety of snow types and terrain. We will develop your skiing in a versatile and natural way. The focus is on improving your technical & tactical skills away from the groomed slopes. With the snow constantly changing in texture and depth. We will teach you how to adapt your skiing to cope with these changes.

Your skiing will improve as you discover how your skis react to the movements and adjustments you make. As you progress, so will your confidence allowing you to ski more challenging snow and terrain.

During the advanced ski courses, we will ski some of Chamonix's best off piste and backcountry terrain accessible by the ski lifts. Sometimes a short hike to the very top can provide us with a better descent.

Understand the most up to date skiing techniques and freeride tactics, delivered by an elite level ski teacher. You will receive personalised development with daily video feedback.

On advanced ski courses the following aspects of your skiing will be developed:


  • Personal performance awareness
  • Develop steering movements
  • Off-piste & freeride skills
  • Terrain, snow and line tactics
  • Technique & tactics for skiing steeper slopes
  • Technique and tactics for skiing gullies & couliors
