All Mountain Intro
Included: 4 full days and 1 half days of coaching, 4* half board accommodation, Transfers
Add ons: Flights, Lift pass, Equipment hire

Working with Marmalade Ski School, our Alpine partner in Les Trois Vallees, this week designed for skiers who are interested in tackling more of the mountain including steeper terrain, chopped up variable snow, icy pistes and bumps. You may have tried skiing off the sides of pistes but struggled and are keen to gain confidence in tougher conditions and deeper snow. If the conditions allow we will duck onto the sides of pistes and by the end of the week perhaps take on some steep slopes or powder snow near the pistes. No need for fat skis or special gear, your normal all mountain skis will be fine. We will be honing your all round skills with drills and exercises on piste but sampling different terrain and getting lots of mileage in variable snow conditions, bumps, steeps and fresh snow near the pistes as the conditions allow.

This holiday is suitable for confident level 7 and higher skiers who are willing to venture off piste on easy slopes (green-easy blue). Limited off piste experience, from none to a few days with a desire to improve while skiing tougher conditions such as icy slopes, steeps, bumps and chopped up snow. Conditions allowing we may get to ski some safe, fresh snow near the pistes. Relatively fit with the attitude and aptitude to progress.
