This year again we will be Back country skiing from different resorts in the Aosta valley and we intend to spend at least one night in a mountain refuge as part of our tour or have at least 1 helicopter uplift on each of the weeks

Our courses will be based in the fabulous Monte Rosa area in Italy and we will be based at the excellent Hotel Castor in Champoluc. see www.hotelcastor.eu Monte Rosa is a fantastic area for off piste skiing, covering the resorts of Champoluc, Gressoney and Alagna. The area of Alagna in particular, is famed for off piste skiing.

Course tuition will be for 6 hours a day for 6 days and will be a combination of piste performance and introduction to off piste skiing. As part of the course you will have the opportunity to try skinning and some ski tours. These will of course, be weather dependent.

Course participants will be given a refresher on  Avalanche Safety and Transceiver work. Map reading will be included and the timing of ski tours and other expeditions

The course will help you to begin to explore beyond the areas served by the lifts and give you the confidence, knowledge and tools that you need to do so in safety and security.

On Course 3 it is intended to do a little more extensive hut to hut touring as more huts will be open in March.

 

  • The coaching costs for the week will be £350
