Advanced All Mountain Ski Courses

ADVANCED SKI COURSES - MAXIMIZE YOUR POTENTIAL!

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

The advanced ski course has been designed for advanced 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, deep snow skiing.

The mountains here provide us with great variety of snow types and terrain. This is why we will develop your skiing in a versatile way. The focus is on improving your technical & tactical skills. Away from the groomed slopes, the snow constantly changes 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 great off piste and backcountry terrain that is accessible by the 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 a personalised development programme 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
  • Avalanche/  Backcountry mountain awareness

 

Week long and weekend ski courses available

The 2 day weekend ski courses are condensed versions of our 5 day courses. The aim of the weekend is to cover the major parts of the 5 day skiing course using a maximum activity approach. That means lots of great  skiing with tips and tactics for snow and terrain.
