What is Three Days Off-Piste?
Nothing beats the thrill and sensation of off-piste skiing. New ski equipment makes it easier and more fun so there's the temptation to push yourself further off the piste in search of the perfect powder experience. There is a risk, but you can learn to manage it if you know what to look out for.
In this three day course we show you what to look out for in order to have fun and be safe off-piste. We also show you how riding off-piste doesn't need to be any riskier than any of your everyday activities (if you didn't know that a red light means stop, then driving would be much more risky!).
Henry is the leading authority on off-piste avalanche safety in the UK and is a fully qualified ski instructor. His three day programme, based in Val d'Isère and Tignes, combines great off-piste skiing with the chance to understand the mountain environment and gain skills so that you can both have fun and stay safe out there.
In terms of technical content this '3 days Off Piste' course with Henry and his Team is equivalent to an Alpine version of the Canadian Avalanche Centre (CAC) Avalanche Skills Training Level 1 (AST 1) or the American Avalanche Association (AAA) Level 1: Avalanche Fundamentals in terms of snow and avalanche training content.
Courses are open to intermediate skiers and above and run throughout the season from December to April.
*Now available as one day course.
