From 6 to 8 pupils per group.
Lunch is taken in one of the mountain restaurants. This is a wonderful course for making the most of your week’s skiing. This course is unique in that it doesn’t involve just learning to ski, we also teach about elements of the surrounding terrain and environment. We’ll ski through the woods and reveal the secret of the forests, we’ll discover and identify animal prints, we’ll look at snow formation and the transformation of ice crystals to better understand when and how an avalanche forms. We’ll show you how to find a person buried under an avalanche and what to do to protect yourself and apply first aid and we’ll teach you how to find your bearings in bad visibility. There will be an introduction to freeride skiing with easy and safe trips off piste. These courses are held by specialised instructors and Alpine Guides.
