Description

Come and join a small group of skiers and head into the wintry wilderness of Austria in search of fresh powder lines.

Geared towards beginner off-piste skiers, you are welcome to join if you can handle on-piste black runs comfortably, making controlled short turns and able to stop in control, and have a good level of fitness.

Your overall skiing experience should be a minimum of 5 weeks.

We’ll explore the Arlberg regions of St Anton, Stuben, Zurs and Lech, a mountain massif that stretches out across the Austrian states of Vorarlberg and Tyrol. It is home to breathtaking scenery and world-class backcountry skiing.

It is the largest skiing area in the whole of Austria and holds one of the biggest reputations in the Alps. Its long history has developed its reputation as being the cradle of alpine skiing.

On day 1,  we warm up with an intensive series of drills both on and Off Piste to improve your technique then the next 2 days we take you on gentle Off-piste terrain to build your confidence. After 3 days you may progress to Level 2

We’ll focus on St. Anton, which has a long history of skiing that has fully developed into the present. It hosted the Alpine World Ski Championship in 2001 and is constantly listed as one of the best regions for skiing in the world.

Away from the excellent groomed runs, St. Anton is home to a great number of backcountry routes.

St. Christoph is a mountain hamlet, which in the 14th century a local shepherd built a hospice for travelers crossing the Arlberg pass. At 1,800 meters high, St. Christoph is one of the highest resorts in the Alps.

Stuben is a charming hamlet resting in Arlberg, where you can discover the origins of alpine skiing. Located in the heart of the massif, its accessibility is top-class and is arguably the region’s powder capital.

Zürs is particularly desired for its excellent backcountry skiing, and has been home to a number of Olympic champions. And with very few trees populating its slopes, there are clear views of the nearby peaks.

Lech am Arlberg is a ski resort that rests on the riverbank of Lech. Recent years has witnessed the resort become one of the world’s top ski destinations, and home to several ski champions.

Myself and a friend spent two days in the Open Level 1 off piste group. We weren't quite sure what to expect as we hadn't done any off piste skiing before. Our guide was keen to show us the basics and took us down increasing routes of difficulty throughout the day which were all very fun! We always felt safe despite being off piste and that our guide was looking out for us, and it really helped us develop our technique. We had two epic days of finding lovely snow away from the pistes despite it not having snowed recently. Thanks so much to Jakob for his time. We'll be back again next year!

Matthias and Flo found amazing powder snow with no people on the busiest week if the year. Zoe did a great job communicating with us to find guides at the last minute.
