Off-piste backcountry skiing is a great way to express your creativity away from the crowded groomed runs of the winter sports resorts.
In Chamonix, the mountains are particularly imposing, massive and powerful.
Skiing in Chamonix is a unique experience with some of the greatest vertical drops in the world…That is why a lot of skiers and free-riders from all over the world come here every winter.
Equipment has evolved over the last few years and the practice of off-piste skiing has considerably developed allowing for a wider choice of superb itineraries.
‘Off-piste’ does mean that you are in an environment that is by definition unmarked and non-secured so to minimize any potential risks (avalanches, crevasses, rocky ledges…), and to find better snow, we adapt according to the daily snow conditions and take you to the itinerary that best suits your motivation on the day of your tour. For these tours, necessary safety equipment will also be supplied: ARVA/transceiver, spade, probe, harness.
