Pre-season performance ski course dates for Autumn 2019:
Hintertux in Austria – November 4th – November 8th (5 day performance ski course) – Course Full
Tignes in France – November 23rd – November 25th (3 day performance ski course) – Course Full
This Autumn’s courses are fully booked. But you can book now for November 2020. The 2020 dates are: Hintertux 9th -13th Nov and the course in Tignes is Nov 21st – 23rd.
The Hintertux & Tignes glacier ski areas offer fantastic early season skiing at high altitude through the Autumn.
Give your skiing an early boost this Autumn, before the season gets underway with a piste performance ski course. These ski courses are suitable for high intermediate to expert 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 carving skis for these courses.
- Strengthen your steering movements
- Improve your carving skills
