Backcountry Ski Guides, Val Thorens

Private Ski Guiding for up to 6 people

A private ski or snowboard session for skiers and snowboarders of all ability levels – on and off-piste. It’s all about fun, improvement and discovering new off piste terrain. 

Guided Off-Piste and Touring are a great way to experience the backcountry with an experienced, UIAGM mountain guide or instructor.

You’ll encounter a variety of snow conditions and terrain; from powder fields, to tree runs, allowing you to improve your off-piste skills. Their packages offer something for every ability so you’ll experience the backcountry at your own pace. Their UIAGM mountain guides or instructors will offer technique pointers, guiding and simulation avalanche rescue training to ensure you’re fully prepared for your Experience.

Splitboarding has become hugely popular in recent years due to exciting new product development: making boards lighter, stronger and easier to use. The possibilities of travelling into the backcountry have been transformed, with snowboarders now able to access terrain that was previously hard to reach. These courses offer snowboarders a unique experience by heading deeper into the backcountry whilst learning important backcountry skills.

Their guided days are for private groups of 1-6 people and includes safety kit (ABS packs are additional).

Child policy

They take skiers and snowboarders from 14 years old. However, in some circumstances, they allow for younger riders and skiers if agreed by the guides. The guides main concern with younger mountain users is that they be able to stay in the group and to take instruction from the guides, as well as their skiing or snowboarding ability.
