Martin, a IFMGA certified mountain guide from Spain, will be your instructor during this 2-day off-piste skiing course in the Piau Engaly ski resort, in the French Pyrenees. Improve your skills in a wild environment with high quality powder snow.
Who has not dreamed of coming down floating by endless runs, with the snow up to the waist and without seeing their own skis? Now, it will be possible!
During this off-piste skiing course we will use the ski lifts of the Piau Engaly ski resort. Once up there, I will teach you to recognize the different types of snow in a real wild and remote environment.
This course in the French region of Piau Engaly is suitable for those off-piste skiers who need to improve their techniques and skills on virgin snow.
The aim of this course is you to learn:
You will also learn how to use the equipment and clothing properly. The maintenance of the technical gear is also an important issue. Finally, we will have a lesson about the action protocols before the activity, some safety procedures and how to act in case of avalanche.
As you can see, it is a very useful and complete course. And I think Piau Engaly is the perfect place to practice.
Please contact me now if you want to live this great learning experience in the French Pyrenees. I will be here waiting for your message!

Martin was incredible! From the pre trip preparations to managing all logistics while there - he made sure I had everything I needed, taught me alot, and importantly kept me safe! He truly provided a first class adventure.
We enjoyed this trip in the Alps very much!! It was an excellent introduction to mountaineering and the stunning peaks of the Alps massive. Our guide Martin made the full experience a succes; pushing us to the limits, keeping us safe at difficult rocky ascents, but also taking time to enjoy the scenery and the climb. Thanks a lot for the beautiful pictures too!
This was a great 4-day hut-to-hut ski experience in the Pyrenees. The national park of Aiguestortes is beautiful and we had a lot of snow. Martin is a professional and social guide. He makes sure that the trip takes place from a pleasant and secure way. Due to the weather conditions we couldn\'t do the climb to the Montardo and to the Ratera, but Martin organized some alternatives to enjoy the 4 days. We were an international group and could communicate with Martin in English.
Impresionante Martin....te hace alcanzar lo inalcanzable, con una sensación de seguridad increible. Un gran profesional
