November ski courses Tignes & Hintertux

The Hintertux & Tignes glacier ski areas offer fantastic early skiing at high altitude through the Autumn.

Give your skiing an early boost this Autumn, before the winter 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.

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
