Activity description

Enjoy a backcountry skiing day trip in Chamonix with a professional and expert mountain guide!

Chamonix is a unique place to practice freeriding thanks to the numerous and various extreme descents.

The guides of Pure Freeride Experience have many years of experience, which will guarantee you a safety ride.

The programme of the day cannot be planned in advance. There is no other way than finding the spot of they day than adapting to the last swnofall, the wind, the sun that warms up the snowpack... You will learn how to freeride quickly and properly!

You will have the opportunity to practice backcountry skiing on different types of trails (large curves, straights in the firs, etc.) and feel the amazing sensation of freedom.

Reminder of some backcountry skiing techniques
- In case of powder snow, you can evolve in big curves or small turns according to your level, to the degree of the slope, the thickness of the fresh snow, etc. 
- To turn, you have to feel the rebound and the support on the snow.
- If there is a lot of fresh snow, don't forget to spread your weight on both feet.
- The support on your poles gives you the rhythm, so you must not neglect it.
- Also, do not forget to breathe!

You will live an unforgettable experience that will have you grinning from ear to ear!
