The dream of every skier is to be able to slide through powder snow with safety and freedom. That is why I want to offer you this off-piste skiing course in Piau Engaly. 

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:

  • How to get off with ease,
  • How to ski with safety and efficiency,
  • Deal with untouched snow and how to know which type it is,
  • Downhill and off-piste techniques,
  • Advanced descent techniques,
  • Avalanche risks,
  • Routes planification,
  • Grades of difficulties of the tracks.

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!
