Destination: Chamonix

The All Mountain Freeride L2 course is focused on fine-tuning the skills developed in the L1 course. Moving technique and tactics along to help deal with the ever changing mountain. Freeride is about freedom and the freedom to express yourself though you skiing. Whilst keeping a focus on your all mountain skiing technique we'll help you look at the terrain in new and playful ways enabling you to flow with rather than against the terrain. Modern equipment design helps us ski more of the mountain, wider platforms cut through changing snow conditions like crud and crust better than ever. Blurring the boundaries between piste and off-piste, the all mountain skier has a bigger verity of skills and is a more rounder skier.

Level – L1 course completed, can ski black runs with ease!

Basic avalanche safety skills are included on this course.
