This is a full week of off-piste skiing, beginning with an introductory near-piste session and working up towards the Pic du Midi descent - one of the best off-piste routes in Europe.
During the 6 days, your guide will look at off-piste techniques for turning in different snow conditions, on steep terrain and tree-skiing.
The minimum group numbers are 4 people and the maximum 6, so you will have all the personal attention that you need.
We’ve not set a date for this holiday type, so we are totally flexible. The price is 975€ per person, full-board. If you have a group who would like to do this, then contact us to arrange a date that suits you.
For this week you have a choice of 3-star chalet or hotel accommodation, based in the traditional French mountain village of Barèges, in the Pays du Toy.
A typical itinerary
Saturday – Arrive in Barèges
Arrive in Barèges late afternoon and we’ll head out to arrange your equipment and lift passes. This evening you’ll meet your guide and the rest of your group.
Sunday – warm up and instruction
Today we’ll have a morning of downhill skiing to warm up, before our afternoon’s introduction to off-piste round the resort.
Monday – off-piste descent of the Augues Cluses valley
Today we head off-piste in the beautiful Neouvielle nature reserve – the Lake District of the Pyrenees.
Tuesday - Woodland off-piste
Today we’ll perfect our turns, skiing through woodland and maybe even surprising a few squirrels along the way...
Wednesday- technique day
Today is about perfecting our technique, so that we can do more challenging off-piste skiing on Thursday and then do the Pic du Midi on Friday.
Thursday – choice of options today
Today you have two options to choose from. Either we can do an off-piste descent to La Mongie, or we can have an introduction to ski-touring.
Friday – Pid du Midi: TWICE!
We take the highest lift in the Pyrenees to the summit of the awesome Pic du Midi at 2872m, and one of the best off-piste descents in Europe.
Saturday - departure
Today you leave for home, already planning your next off-piste adventure...!
This is a sample itinerary as, obviously, where you go and what you do depends on the weather conditions, snow conditions and your group’s ability and tastes.
