Back country details

25th January 2020

Ready to move away from the pistes? If you’re a reasonably experienced skiier or boarder (you can do a black run without breaking a sweat), come and join us! If you’ve never ventured away from the crowds before, don’t worry – we will arrange an “introduction to off-piste” session to get your confidence soaring before you join our main group.

If you’re a bit more used to untapped territory, we’ll go off with guides to explore what the vast Portes du Soleil area really has to offer.

We will also try to do an overnight ‘expedition’ staying in  a mountain refuge – a great opportunity for people to really do something extreme. This is an extra cost and depends on conditions and ability of the group.

And if the snow conditions aren’t right every day? The back-up plan is to get some jump instruction in, do some boarder cross work, and try and break some records on the downhill speed course. Ready for action?

We have guides booked for four full days, as well as a half day session to go through mountain safety, avalanche awareness and avalanche rescue.

The guides are included in the price of your trip, as is your avalanche safety kit.
