Tree Skiiing - Through the Woods of Megeve or Chamonix
Join me on an easy day tour, off-piste skiing through trees and woods in the Chamonix area. The French Alps offers endless forest to explore of which you will have a private instructor to guide you. Perfect for the intermediate on piste skier.
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 use the areas of Megeve or Chamonix for this day. The trees are a great place to explore on the mountain, theres great snow, little crowds and when its bad weather it offers good visibility and contrast when there is none on the slopes. Mastering snow and speed management are of upmost importance, so i will teach you how to glide through this amazing natural playground effortlessly.
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 course, 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.
Once you have completed the lesson you will be aware of the benefits as well as the dangers in the forest. This will open a whole new dimension to your skiing, developing confidence and fresh ability.
Skiing with myself Guy Pellerin will open doors and i look forward to having you back again!
