January 19th, February 9th or March 2nd : Freeride initiation

Off-piste skiing is a great feeling of freedom. The chance to make your mark on immaculate snow, in the middle of large virgin natural spaces. Thanks to the mechanical installations we use to access the top of the slopes, and to your guide's excellent knowledge of the terrain, you will be able to get off the slopes.

January 20th, February 10th and March 3rd: Introduction to ski touring

Do you like to go for a walk? Ski touring is the best way to get around in winter. If you have a good technique of ski touring and you like wide open spaces, this activity is made for you. During this first day, you will get familiar with your equipment and the basic techniques.

  • Technical requirements: Participants who can ski parallel and are comfortable on all black runs (uncomfortable in difficult snow conditions such as cardboard or in poor visibility in different terrain).

  • Knowledge of the terrain: mastery of the basics, possible evolution in autonomous roped party under the control of a guide.

January 25th, February 14th or March 15th: Avalanche course

Learn to read the terrain, prepare an outing and analyze the snowpack. Gain more independence in the organization and execution of your outing.
