Although Val Thorens and Les Trois Vallées consist of more than 600 km perfectly groomed slopes, there are endless off-piste possibilities. This course will initiate you in powder skiing or snowboarding in a secure and safe way.
We will kick of the day with a warming-up on a groomed slope. I will assist in improving your skiing or snowboard basics which will help you off-piste. In addition, we will discuss how you should use your security equipment, such as avalanche receiver and airbag.
Once you are warmed up we will go off-piste. I will judge the weather and snow conditions, your experience and motivation and select the most appropriate freeriding slopes.
The course is open to all those who wish to discover freeriding on skis or snowboard, without age restriction. You have to have proper control of parallel turns on the piste but no experience with off-piste is required. The course will be adapted to your experience, motivation, and momentum.
