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!
