Is This Trip for You?

This week is designed for complete beginners.

Inevitably we start with the basics, including how to stop using the snowplough technique and how to turn. You will be on skis for at least 5-6 hours a day with a focus on tuition, getting comfortable on skis and building towards longer tours through the winter landscape. For at least 4 of the 5 days skiing, you will be on full day tours, returning only at the end of the day's skiing.
