Off Piste Freeride, between 1-8 March 2018
Based in Chamonix, ski off-piste in the Chamonix area with day trips to Courmayeur and or Verbier which are covered in the unlimited ski pass. Experience the high glacier runs and adventurous off-piste. Possibly try some touring to access fresh turns. We provide avalanche safety gear and group safety equipment such as ropes and harnesses where necessary.
Chamonix Day Ski Touring, between 3-13 April
Based in Chamonix, ski tour off the high lifts or from the road head in the Chamonix Valley or in the nearby areas of Switzerland and the Aosta valley in Italy. This involves walking between 500m and 1800m up-hill per day. We cross cols, climb summits and ski in the wilder areas of the alps. The trips can be adapted to the level of the group and would involve skinning, boot-packing and possibly cramponing and rope-work, depending on the group. We’ll teach you as we go and of course try to do some great skiing!
Rock Climbing Skills, from indoor to outdoors, between 20 – 30 April
Are you an indoor climber or lack the confidence to get into outdoor climbing? This course is a step by step learning process from the simple skills of knots and belay technique, to leading multi-pitch climbs, to placing trad gear and assessing risks. The rate of progression is adapted to each person and the goal is to gain confidence.
Starting in the Chamonix valley and then moving to the Aosta valley in Italy, about 1.5 hours away. There are single pitch climbs of many styles, multi-pitch and the opportunity to practice trad in the areas that we visit.
