What you'll do

Located in the extreme north in the region of South Tyrol, the Val Gardena has all the ingredients for a world-class ski resort. With quality access to deep powder snow, top facilities and scenic surroundings, Val Gardena is one of the best resorts in Europe. This trip is created for beginners of off-piste skiing who want to make the transition from groomed runs to carving their own tracks off-piste. So long as you can master on-piste runs and have a good level of fitness you’re ready for this wilder adventure. I will teach you the fundamentals of mountain safety during the day so you will feel comfortable leading your own off-piste adventures in the future. We begin in the morning with a 15-minute safety check before heading to the lift. With a combination of skiing and practical learning, you’ll spend the day learning the essentials. You will get to use and understand all the necessary safety equipment, such as the transceiver, probe and shovel. You will build your risk management skills and how to read avalanche forecasts, understand how to assess the wind, which is the main cause of avalanches, and how to rescue someone from an avalanche. Val Gardena offers supreme views of rugged snow-cloaked spires that glisten from the winter sun. Capture these breathtaking sights while you descend the wild slopes. If you're a group of 3 or more then contact me for a discount.
