Private Off-Piste Snowboard Lessons

There really is nothing better than gliding through fresh snow, feeling free as you bounce between turns. If you’re looking to develop your skills in the backcountry, whilst exploring and learning how to stay safe, then our off-piste private lessons will help you gain the knowledge and experience you need to feel confident. Or if you haven’t ventured off-piste yet and want to give it a go, we’ve got something for you.

Introduction

We offer both off-piste lessons and off-piste guiding.  So whether you’ve never ventured outside of the piste markers, or you’re looking for hidden powder stashes, we’ll help you find fresh tracks and teach you to ride them with style.

Please note, avalanche safety equipment will be required for most off-piste lessons unless you’re learning techniques within the piste markers. If you do not have your own we may have some we can loan you, or we can advise you where you can hire it.

And while we really love taking you on these adventures, each session is condition dependent and the safety of you and our instructors is paramount.

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.)
