Safe Off Piste with a Safety Training from a Ski Guide – Mountain Guide Zermatt

Off piste, free-riding and extreme skiing are getting more and more popular every year. Because of more efficient transportation and better gear the technical abilities have improved a lot for a large number of skiers and snowboarders. Therefore they are capable of mastering deep snow, couloirs and steep slops. Most of the off piste skiers or free-riders come from the pistes and not from mountaineering and because of this fact they have generally a large lack in mountaineering skills.

In 2 to 3 days (depending on previous knowledge) you will obtain the necessary basic skills. I avoid big theories and I put a lot of emphasis on practical work outdoors.

You can also book an one day avalanche training.

CHF 550.00 for 1 or 2 people, for every additional person a fee of CHF 40.00 per person will be charged. Without skipass.

On Monday after course 1 and 2 an additional course follows “solving of dead end problems”.
Price is on agreement. Everyone who goes steep especially on long descents has to deal with dead end problems. A dead end problem is when the skier / boarder gets stuck on hidden ice or rock and gets handicapped on the descent. This leads automatically to “a stuck situation” and then to a fall down situation.

Safe skiing in unprepared terrain. For course 2, basic mountaineering skills are essential. For the course “solving dead end problems” skiing or boarding on minimum 45° slopes.
