Description

This internship is the perfect program for discovering ski touring and off-piste skiing. Those 2 days of skiing will make you understand if ski touring is a discipline you like or not. The program will take place in some of the best known resorts in the upper Aosta valley in Italy, near the Mont Blanc.

The aim is to allow alpine skiers with a red slope level to try to climb routes suitable for beginners, followed by off-piste descents at the edge of the slopes where, in case of difficulty, they can easily return to the slope. We will also deal with the minimum notions of using the transceiver for a more careful practice of skiing off the slopes.

Program

D1: Ski touring in the forests of the Pila - Aosta ski area.
Meet at 8.30am. Today you will be able to try out the technique of going up, and approach the notions of rescue with the transceiver, the shovel and the probe. We will then continue the day with the introduction to off-piste skiing in the ski area, while staying on the edges of the slopes. Finally, we will organise the next day.
Duration: from 5 to 6 hours of skiing.

D2: Off-piste skiing on the edges of the slopes in one of the ski areas of La Thuile or Courmayeur.
Meet at 8.30am. Today the aim is to practice and learn a few little notions that make it easier to make turns off the slopes. At the end of the day around 3.30pm, we will make an assessment of the course.
