ON SNOW EXPERIENCE

This weekend is ideal for good off piste skiers who are relatively new to ski touring. First there is a warm-up day using a local ski area, where you’ll focus on touring and off-piste skiing skills, before returning to the simple valley hotel in the town of Orsières. The remaining three days and two nights will be using the historic hospice located on the Grand St Bernard pass as the mountain base, from where there are plenty of options for day tours and summits with great ski descents.

You need to be at least an Intermediate (Silver) or Advanced (Purple) off-piste standard skier and to be able to ski confidently and in control on all terrain.If you are unsure of the ski level, visit our Ski profile Page. It is likely during the weekend that you will encounter many types of off-piste snow including powder, dense snow and crust, and also variable weather conditions. It will also help that you can work towards executing kick-turns in ascent.

ACCOMMODATION

Spend two nights in the Grand St Bernard Monastery in twin share accommodation, on a half board basis. You’ll also be staying in mountain huts, still on a half board basis twin share accommodation, which will be communicated nearer the time by the mountain guide or Ski Club Rep. Please note that the accommodation, as the itinerary, is subject to snow and weather conditions at the time
