1 DAY OFF PISTE SKILLS - Level 1 & Level 2
This is our NEW product for season 2016/17
Number of clients: Maximum 6 clients in a group
Cost: £115 per head per day
These Level 1 & Level 2 courses are designed for all levels of advanced piste and off piste skiers who would like to find the key to improving their skills for:
Using terrain to maintain control
The content of each day may vary depending on the snow & weather conditions but we will use the terrain that is most suitable to the group and conditions.
Level 1 - for those who have tried skiing off piste on some of our courses or private lessons during the season and need a checkup to improve further skills and to further develop. Still find terrain more challenging and are looking to improve skiing bumps and variable conditions.
Level 2 - for those clients again who have been with us previously and are developing well. Having had more time over the years to put skills into practice and can ski all terrain more competently and quicker but are still looking to improve and gain further skills and tactics for steeper and more challenging conditions.
All clients should carry off piste safety kit (transceiver/shovel/prove). Part of each day will be ensuring each client understands and can use the kit efficiently. It is important that all members of a group have regular training to ensure their skills stay up to date and fresh. This equipment can be hired from our colleagues at GM Sports.
All mountain skis are advisable but we do not recommend wide skis. The width under the foot should be no more than 95mm. A ski wider than this is for deep snow only and is not suitable for all off piste terrain as it causes imbalance and unnecessary stress on the joints increasing the risk of injury.
Our instructors wear helmets and we would recommend that our clients consider the use of helmets when skiing all terrain.
We would recommend the Mont Blanc Unlimited ski pass but depending on weather this may not be necessary. If you wish to confirm which pass is required for the day please contact the allocated instructor beforehand.
All clients are responsible for having full Winter Ski Insurance which covers skiing off piste terrain and piste rescue.
