Although Les 3 Vallées has more than 600 km perfectly groomed slopes, you prefer exploring remote mountain areas and being in deep contact with nature. This course will help you to discover the vastness of Val Thorens and Les 3 Vallées in a secure and safe way.
I will judge the weather and snow conditions, and select the most appropriate freeriding slopes. I'll take into account the mind, your individual psychology, as well as your sporting or non-sporting physique and technique and psychomotor knowledge of the body.
During the day we will discuss different safety measures that are relevant when going off-piste, such as
- off-piste attitude
- secure behaviour when you are riding on your own, with two or in group
- use of your avalanche backpack, avalanche transceiver, shovel and probe
- impact of altitude, wind, snow, vertical drop, orientation, level and motivation of your colleague riders
The course is open to all those who wish to go freeriding (ski or snowboard), without age restriction. You have to have some experience off-piste. The course will be adapted to your experience, motivation, and momentum.
