If you want to learn off-piste skiing, this 2-day trip in Chamonix and Grands Montets is the perfect choice, with Sébastien, IFMGA certified mountain guide.
When we talk about freeride or off-piste skiing, Chamonix is a place that always comes to mind. During this trip, we will go the the beautiful Grands Montets, a large ski area near Chamonix with extraordinary landscapes.
In particular, this trip is great for beginners in off-piste skiing. An ideal initiation to this fantastic practice!
During this trip, we will cover how to:
– Progress off-piste
– Assess and manage the risks associated with this practice
– Use the transceiver, shovel and probe
Even though the minimum number of participants is 4, don’t hesitate to register if you are alone. I will put groups together.
