Description

This program is designed to introduce you to 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 course will take place in some of the best known resorts in the upper Aosta valley in Italy, close to 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, it is easy to return to the slope.

We will also deal with the minimum notions of using the transceiver (avalanche victim detector) 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 at the place agreed together.
During this first day, you will be able to try out the technique of climbing, and approach the notions of rescue with the transceiver, the shovel and the probe. We will then continue the program 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.
