Description

This is the perfect program for discovering, or better to try, ski touring and off-piste skiing. 2 days of skiing to 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 Mont Blanc.

The aim is to allow skiers with a red piste 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, you 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: Meeting at 8.30am at the scheduled location. Ski touring in the forests of the Pila - Aosta ski area where you will be able to try out the technique of going up, the notions of rescue with transceiver, shovel and probe. We will then continue 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: 5 to 6 hours of skiing.

D2: Meeting at 8.30am. Off-piste skiing on the edges of the slopes in one of the ski areas of La Thuile or Courmayeur. 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 at 3.30pm, we will make an assessment of the course.
Duration: 5 to 6 hours of skiing.
