By participating in our powder ski training the first step in making the dream of skiing in deep snow a reality has become true. In our courses, we teach the basics of off-piste skiing and coach participants in becoming competent freeriders.
The ski areas in Gstaad are ideally suited to introduce people into the secrets of skiing in untouched terrain.
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!
Our powder ski training courses are available from the end of October till early May, the “classic” 4-day module from Monday to Thursday and the “intensive” 6-day module from Monday to Saturday. Individual starting days can be arranged.
Our typical group size is 6 persons, courses can also be run with only 3 participants. When we have less than 3 participants a small group surcharge may apply.
We run our powder ski training in areas with terrain that is best suited for our participants. The most versatile terrain for beginners and intermediate powder skiers is in Saanenmöser. Here there are also a number of ski in/ski out lodging options available. More information can be found here: Hotels in Saanenmöser
We propose two options, the “classic” course with 4 ski days and the “intensive” course with 6 ski days. The courses can be booked as “training only” modules or as “full-service programs” which include hotel, breakfast and dinner for 5 or 7 nights and the lift pass for 4 or 6 days.
In our freeride clinics, we prepare participants for skiing in the backcountry. In a step by step approach they will be taught the necessary powder skiing techniques and the code of conduct to ski competently and safely outside of controlled areas. The below mentioned daily teaching elements will be adapted to the participants’ skill levels and to their training progress.
The courses start at 09.00h am and last 6 hours per day.
Die Kurse beginnen jeweils um 09.00h und dauern 6 Stunden pro Tag.
In this module, detailed knowledge is provided on risk assessment in the terrain and participants enjoy another ski day on the mountain or a ski tour.
