Total Chamonix Ski Lesson with Experienced Instructor
This one day lesson is for beginner, intermediate or advanced skiers. You will ski off piste and on a glacier accessible from the town of Chamonix, myself, a private instructor will lead the group (max 6) with unique teaching style.
Chamonix is a town located in the French Alps, its famous for its towering peaks and based under the tallest mountain in Europe, Mont Blanc (4,808m). It is one of the oldest ski towns in the world with tourism dating back to 1821 when the first guiding association was established. Since then the town has become a mecca for backcountry enthusiasts and mountaineers, Making Chamonix a centre for progressive mountain culture in Europe.
We will be skiing off piste and into natural terrain. The snow will be deeper and many new features will appear that you don't usually have in a resort. Learn to really ski the mountain! The glacier will be snow covered in most parts, i will explain the mechanics of the glacier and how it has helped to create the mountains that surround us.
Im a local skier with over 40 years of instructing in Chamonix. Video analysis is included to gain a different perspective on your skiing. We will practice team building inside the lesson, work together problem solving, and above all use skiing to master stress management. Skiing is a spiritual activity for myself and i look forward to having you connect to the mountain in the same way i have done so for many years.
I will choose the off piste runs based on the level of the group that I'm guiding. When skiing off piste you need to use a different technique and when you combine that with a glacier there are other safety factors to realise. The glacier often gets the best snow although reading the glacier is extremely important to avoid dangers on the mountain.
Adventure is in the heart of all of us, off-piste and glacier skiing is an amazing experience not to miss out on.
