7 Week Off Piste Course Val d’Isere

Push your boundaries. Enjoy an extended time at Val d'Isere, one of Europe's most snow sure resorts, taking your all mountain ski technique to the next level. Learn with a friendly group of like minded skiers at this magnificent resort and explore the best terrain and snow in the Alps.

Our 8 week off piste course in Val d’Isere is for you if you’re a confident resort skier looking to improve your all mountain technique with a particular focus on improving your deep snow skiing. We also introduce mountain safety and you will enjoy 7 weeks at Europe’s premier ski resort.

We begin with exploring the Espace Killy (now known as Val d’Isere – Tignes), arguably the most diverse ski area in France, getting comfortable and confident on our skis and delivering plenty of constructive feedback and video analysis. The ALLTRACKS training formula helps ensure that you make the best use of your time on snow combining technical component training with plenty of high mileage challenge skiing and seeking out some of the best routes and snow conditions in the Alps.

On top of your technical ski coaching, weekly Avalanche skills and mountain safety training is delivered by Henry Schniewind. Henry enjoys a global reputation in off piste safety and has been off piste guiding in Val d’isere for almost 20 years. He is a Fully Certified French Ski Instructor  from the Ecole Nationale de Ski et d’Alpinisme and he is endorsed by The French National Association for Snow and Avalanche Study. Additionally, Henry is a Professional Member of the American Avalanche Association. Henry is supported by IFMGA guides for our glacier day.

As with all our courses, training is limited to 6 guests per instructor and/or guide in order that you receive plenty of personal attention while still enjoying the dynamics of belonging to a group.
