Freeride Clinics – Powder Ski Training

“Skiers who are capable of making controlled and constant turns on groomed red slopes are ready to start skiing in the backcountry. With professional coaching and the right freeriding skis, it will only take them a couple of days till they can enjoy the pleasures of skiing in deep powder snow!”

The freeride courses of Gstaad Outdoors have been designed for guests who would like to be taught the skills to ski in deep powder snow and who would like to improve their backcountry skiing capabilities. Besides teaching off-piste skiing skills, people will also learn in our courses how to identify safe routes and how to assess avalanche dangers.

Skiing Deep Powder Freeriding in Gstaad Ski Region Gstaad-Saanenland

For the participants in our courses, each day should turn into a positive and motivating skiing experience. The expectations of each participant must, therefore, be met and we must create opportunities to let the program participants experience the progress they are making. The most important elements of a great skiing day are, however, many moments of fun and enjoyment.

Our powder ski courses are available to skiers of all levels, from beginners to the mature freeriders looking for opportunities to enjoy exceptional backcountry runs in Gstaad.

The group size in our courses is limited to 6 participants, but we will run them also for smaller groups.
