Ever dreamt of leaving the crowds of the piste behind and exploring the mountains beyond the boundary rope? This specially-designed week based in the off-piste mecca of Chamonix will take you there, introducing the freedom and excitement of the backcountry. Skiing challenging terrain, untracked powder and ascending deep into the mountains using ski-mountaineering techniques will take your skiing to the next level and open up a whole new world of alpine adventure.

Applying these new skills, you will then enjoy the company and experience of a UIAGM mountain guide learning the essential techniques and tactics for ski-mountaineering and safe off-piste travel. On each day, you will discover the wild and dramatic mountains of the Mont Blanc region which rightly make Chamonix one of the great places to ski in the world.
