All ski courses are delivered by elite British ski instructor, Mark Gear.
The advanced ski course is 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.
Off-piste skiing provides great variety of snow types and terrain. For this reason, we help develop your skiing in a versatile and natural way that will encourage better adaptability when skiing more challenging conditions.

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.
