Back Country

Backcountry is another term for off-piste skiing or skiing away from the pisted areas. Our 3 instructional Backcountry courses are unique as they are run by a Mountain Guide and a Ski Instructor, based around two main skill sets: skiing and mountain safety.

Whatever your level, our Backcountry courses will transform not only your skiing but your enjoyment of the winter mountains. We only use the highest quality UIAGM guides and BASI ski instructors available to ensure that you get the most out of your backcountry experience.

Alongside our purely instructional courses we run various off - piste adventures, from day trips in Chamonix to week long holidays in Zermatt.
