Pre-season ski courses in November and early December in Tignes with Mark Gear

The Tignes glacier ski area normally offers fantastic skiing in the autumn and early winter season due to it’s high altitude.

Give your skiing an early boost before the season gets underway, with a piste performance ski course.  These ski courses are suitable for high intermediate to advanced level skiers or skiers of levels 4 – 7 using this skiing level finder.

As the skiing is at high altitude and on a glacier, these ski courses will be dedicated to improving your general on-piste skiing.  The off-piste skiing can be dangerous at this time of year due to crevasses off the pistes, so we will be skiing on the groomed pistes instead, on a well prepared glacier ski area.  For this reason, it’s best to use piste skis or all-mountain skis.

Topics covered:

  • Strengthen your steering movements
  • Improve your carving skills
  • Maximise versatility by varying the turn radius
  • Enhance your timing, coordination & flow
  • Receive personalised ski coaching
  • Daily video feedback
