Perfect for those with a strong grounding in off piste technique, this trip is based in Flaine, and short tours each day will take you off the beaten track towards the best fresh snow. Similar to our other Flaine instruction holidays, you will spend five days with Yann and his team but this time will ski tour for a couple of hours each day to fully explore the extensive Grand Massif. You will also receive expert off piste tuition to sharpen those skills, providing a rewarding, scenic and remote skiing experience.
ON SNOW EXPERIENCE
You will start the week with an exploratory warm up day to get your ski legs working again. Following this are five full days of expert tuition from some of the best instructors in the Alps, who aim to teach, guide, improve and entertain you. Each day you’ll start off using the lift system to gain altitude, before strapping on your touring skins to reach quiet, untracked corners of the Grand Massif.
This trip is aimed at Intermediate (Silver) and Advanced (Purple) off piste skiers. If you are unsure of your level please see our Ski Profile Page. At the end of the week you will receive an updated grading from your Instructor or Ski Club Rep.
At the heart of the Grand Massif, Flaine has fantastic, vast and varied terrain for skiers of all levels. As a resort built because of the majestic mountains and generous dumps of snow, Flaine benefits from one of the best snowfalls across the Alps, with an average of almost six metres a year. With its runs being predominantly north-facing, the resort is renowned for maintaining fantastic snow throughout the season. For more information on Flaine, please visit the Flaine Resort Page.
If you require ski hire and ski touring kit hire, we have a good arrangement with Flaine Super Ski, who stock excellent all terrain skis for our groups. They are adjacent to the main lift station and as a Ski Club member you will get a 20% discount.
If you own your own ski touring equipment, then it may be worth taking this with you on your trip. If you do not own your own kit, then this can normally be easily rented in resort. However, please be aware of the cost of hiring this equipment in resort.
