WEEK END TOUR
Join us for our weekly guided tours, usually 3 hours on Saturday or Sunday mornings.
For ski-tourers or split boarders, or snowboarders with snow shoes.
40 euros each, max group size 5
TO BOOK: Please email info@avoriazalpineskischool with your name, phone number and chosen tour. You will be emailed a link to provide payment and confirm your place.
Join our experienced instructors for weekly guided tours in the Portes du Soleil Backcountry. Pick their brains about technique, mountain safety and local knowledge or simply sit back and enjoy the ride, knowing your guide is choosing a safe route and finding the best conditions.
The pace and difficulty of the tour will be dictated by the requests of the attendees, so please make your experience and requirements known. As a rough guide, tours will run at a pace of around 250 vertical meters ascended per hour on red steepness off-piste terrain. Once we have toured and skiid/snowboarded together and we know our groups level, we can plan bigger, faster or more difficult tours if required. Similarly, we can run easier tours on more gentle terrain for those new to the sport.
What to bring:
You'll need ski touring or split boarding equipment to join these tours. We can also guide snow shoeing groups, although we will not mix snow shoers with ski tourers or split boarders. Please bring a backpack with a transciever, shovel and probe (if you don't have this we have spares you can borrow) as well as water, snacks and layers.
Please wear a mask to the meeting point.
Attendees must fill in and bring a COVID disclaimer.
Please keep your distance from others and wear the mask whenever you are within 2 meters of anyone else. For most of the class social distancing will be easy, allowing you to stand back and breathe freely.
