The Introduction to Off-Piste Skills Weekend is for skiers who would like to improve their skills and start to spend more time away from the marked and controlled runs. Whether it’s your first time skiing deep snow or you’ve already tried but still have some problems this course is for you. Anyone who wants to attend our Freeride weekends in Vals or our Ski Tours and is unsure of their ability can use this weekend as a check-up and a way of improving your skills.
Max No. of Participants:
This year we will take our off-piste skills training weekend to Rothwald in the Simplon area. This area is perfect for learning how to ski off-piste. There is a wide variety of mixed terrain accessible very easily from the lifts in the region and even if the weather/visibility is poor there are many tree lines that can be used to work on skills.
Accommodation is in the Mountain Hotel Wasenalp with amazing views over the Rhone Valley and a Hot Tub on the Veranda. We stayed in this hotel last year, the group feedback was that we have to come back again.
Payment is due at the time of registration. You will receive an email with payment details shortly after registering for this event.
As we have taken a firm booking on the number of attendees the course fee is non-refundable. However, your place on the course is interchangeable. If for some reason you can’t attend the course we will offer your place to the next person on the waiting list. Once this person has confirmed their place and paid their deposit I will return your fee. I can only return the fee if your place on the course is filled by another participant.
What is included:
- Mountain Guides
- Overnight accommodation (Saturday night)
- Evening meal and Breakfast
NB: In the event of the weather or avalanche risk being too bad, the weekend may be moved to a different area. If this it may result in a small increased cost for the difference between the costs in the accommodations. This is a worst-case scenario event, but if it happens this can not be avoided.
What is not included:
- Transport to and from Rothwald
- Lift Tickets
- Ski equipment
- Touring/Freeride/All Mountain Skis
- Avalanche safety equipment (Transceiver, Shovel and Probe)
