Group Off-Piste Snowboard Lessons

Not much beats the feeling of leaving your mark on the mountain as you glide down a powder run. If you’re wanting to explore the incredible off-piste available, but don’t know the resort, don’t have the kit or don’t have a group you trust to ski with then our Off-Piste group lessons are perfect for you.

Explore and develop your skills with a team of skiers all of a similar ability. Our off-piste specialist instructors will show you the resorts best-kept secrets while keeping you safe.

Introduction

Our off-piste group lessons run in 4 formats to cater for every skill and confidence level. When choosing your lesson it is best to think about not just your technical ability but how close to the edge of your comfort zone you would like to be pushed.

You may be a strong technical snowboarder but off-piste this is only half the picture. Confidence can play a huge part. If you are unsure of which option is best for you please contact our team who are on hand to help you find the perfect lesson.

Our instructors will always place your safety at the heart of every decision they make. They will endeavour to find you the best snow in the resort but have to balance this with Avalanche Safety and the level of the group.

Levels

Find your off-piste snowboard level with our handy guide to help you select the right lesson or adventure for your ability.

The levels describe what level you are currently at and what you can already do, not what you will be learning in the lessons. These off-piste levels help us ensure that we select the perfect instructor for your lesson, so you can develop new off-piste skills and build confidence.

Top Tips

  • If you’re out with us all day, and we’re heading into the backcountry, we might stop at a refuge. Or we might grab lunch on the mountain if you’re skiing with us all day, so bring a sandwich in your backpack or bring some money for a bite to eat. Your instructor will inform you of lunch plans beforehand.
  • If you have avalanche equipment, please bring your own. We can provide avalanche equipment if necessary. Please inform us beforehand so we can prepare the equipment for you.
  • Please bring a mobile phone with you.
  • Please wear a helmet for all off-piste lessons.
  • Make sure you’ve got a piste map in your pocket (you can pick them up from most lift stations or the tourist office.)

Additional Information

  • As these are group lessons, we ask that you consider the others in the group. Please be realistic about your level as it is much harder to manage a split ability group off-piste!
  • Want to effortlessly glide through the powder making consistent turns? We’ve got you!
