Ski Courses in Gstaad

From groomed slopes into the Backcountry

Freeride Clinics in Gstaad

Season Duration: November to May

The backcountry skiing 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 learning off-piste skiing skills, people will also learn how to identify safe routes and how to assess avalanche dangers.

For the participants in our courses, each day should turn into a positive and motivating skiing experience. The expectations of each member 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.
