Backcountry Adventures with JSH Snowsports (January)
1 — 6
6 hours per day
100 Place de l'Aiguille du Midi, 74400 Chamonix-Mont-Blanc, France
Do you fancy stepping into Chamonix's mecca terrain?
Are you looking to explore the Backcountry?
Do you want to take your off piste skiing to the next level?
THEN THIS WEEK WILL INSPIRE YOU!
Backcountry Adventures is simply the best way to explore Mont Blanc's iconic range with like-minded skiers. Our overall aim is to move away from the standard course format and let people experience what Chamonix's backcountry has to offer while learning new skills to become a better skier. We want to create a fun, challenging and rewarding week, whilst having some adventures in the backcountry.
You will get to ski with the highest qualified BASI Level 4 ISTD ski coaches, who will share their expertise about how to improve mentally, technically and physically as a skier to improve your backcountry skiing. Together with IFMGA Mountain Guides they will help you set new goals or simply help you enjoy your time on the mountains with useful tips and tricks. Their expertise will enable you to access terrain that may have previously seemed unachievable.
You need to be a relatively experienced off piste skier, with the ability to link turns smoothly in powder snow with confidence, but wish to add skills to improve your ability when snow conditions become more varied and slopes become steeper. If you are looking to push yourself to the next level this is the course for you. Fitness levels need to be such that you are able to last a good day skiing on the mountain including ski touring and boot packing to access suitable terrain. Some experience of ski touring is necessary to allow us to concentrate on learning new mountaineering skills.
