Steep Skiing

Chamonix is the steep skiing centre of the skiing universe, with classic steep descents to be found in all directions. Our steeps course is a 5 day program taking in some of the classic Chamonix steeps. This isn't you fall you die stuff though, it's more about physical and mental challenges, that will push you but in a good way to perform to your best. Over the week we will progress from fairly moderate to more technically challenging steeps by the end of the week, requiring more commitments and a cool head. A week of fun and adventure with a focus on steep skiing techniques that will take your skiing onto the next level. Depending on the weather and conditions we'll aim to ski some classic couloirs by the end of the weeks program. Covering technique and tactics to help you become a more solid steep skier, like how to drop into a couloir whilst staying in control.

A typical day would include lots of guided skiing, short technical sessions and plenty of time to practice. "SKI TO LEARN"
