Learn and experience the art of deep-snow skiing
The Freeride Basic Day is available to all skiers and off-piste skiers who already have some experience skiing off-piste or on ski slopes but do not yet feel 100% confident, and who are hoping to get even more from a great deep-snow descent. Improve your basic technique (body position) and learn how best to tackle off-piste skiing. With exercises on stance both on and off piste, you will strengthen your ski technique and build your confidence for your next powder run. All of this follows the motto: Get up, get in that cable car and head up that mountain!
