ADVANCED OFF-PISTE SKI COURSES – MAXIMIZE YOUR POTENTIAL!
Off piste ski courses for advanced skiers run in Chamonix, France.
All ski courses are run by elite British ski instructor Mark Gear.
The advanced ski course has been designed for advanced level skiers who already have the skills required to ski most off piste snow conditions. Typically you can get around ok off piste, but are looking to consolidate & improve your general off piste skiing.
When skiing off-piste, the mountains can provide great variety of snow types and terrain. For this reason we will help develop your skiing in a versatile and natural way that will encourage you to have better adaptability when skiing more challenging snow and terrain.
The main focus of the advanced level ski course is on improving your personal, all-mountain skiing skills. This is done in a practical way and mostly away from the groomed slopes. You will receive plenty of useful tips to teach you how to adapt your skiing. This will help you to cope better with the challenges of all-mountain and off-piste skiing.
Your skiing will improve during the course as you discover how your skis react to the movements and adjustments you make. As you progress, so will your confidence allowing you to ski more challenging snow and terrain.
During the advanced ski courses, we will ski some of Chamonix’s best off piste and backcountry terrain accessible by the ski lifts. Sometimes a short hike to the very top can provide us with a better descent.
Understand the most up to date skiing techniques and modern, freeride skiing tactics. You will receive a personalised ski coaching approach with daily video feedback in a small group of 6 skiers maximum.
On advanced ski courses the following aspects of your skiing will be developed:
- Personal performance awareness
- Develop steering movements
- Off-piste & freeride skills
- Terrain, snow and line tactics
- Technique & tactics for skiing steeper slopes
- Technique and tactics for skiing gullies & couliors
