Freeride / Ski touring

Freeride

Freeride is for me the best goal of any board sport.

This is why I wish to share with you my greatest hobby.

We will go down mountains accessible by “gravity” (from the ski lifts) or browse small hidden corners within the reach of any level of skier or snowboarder.

My freeride lessons will not only be based on the discovery of the landscape but also on a technical teaching of ski and snowboard on any type of snow and any type of terrain. “a minimum of effort for a maximum of pleasure”.

Learn to observe the quality and the layers of snow in order to identify the areas exposed to avalanche risks and to ride with maximum safety.

Learn to use your magnetic transceiver, shovel and probe effectively.

Create team building, mutual aid …

To summarize, you are here to explore your playing field in the best possible way by using your tool in its smallest specifics.

Ski Touring

And your dream comes true! I take you to My office…

Ski touring enthusiast or fond of extreme sports, I will take you away from the slopes, quiet and where serenity reigns.

Magnificent landscapes guaranteed, you will be amazed!

Day and half-day excursions. Backpack with shovel, probe, and magnetic transceiver provided. Do you need additional equipment? I will advise you.

Possibility of ski touring by night. To see these billions stars sparkle on the snowy mountains is absolutely sumptuous. What about full moon by nights…

Some where in the mountain by night with full moon.

Heliski

Heliskiing is a very high-tech approach to the mountain that will allow you to ride where you never imagined putting your boards.

There are two options available to you.

Drops.

In other words, the helicopter will take you to the top of a mountain peak. It lands at the top and the group descends on skis or snowboards to the base point. This process is not allowed in France but in many other countries it is.

Recovery.

This means that the helicopter picks you up at an authorized location and brings you back to a drop-zone. This can be done from drop-zone to drop-zone too.

The authorized areas will therefore be below 1600m above sea level, on private land in order to make an exceptional request.

I am able to organize a day for you around the 3 valleys.

Recovery from Planchette offpiste to Val-Thorens drop-zone.

A classic day:

  • Morning: off piste on the 3 valleys
  • End of morning: off piste which brings us to the place of the meal. (a descent of approximately 1 hour)
  • Meal: lost in the middle of nowhere, the owner of the chalet welcomes you and prepares you a typical Savoyard lunch (home-made pâté, cured meats on site, “croziflette”, Savoyard cheeses ripened on site, dessert, genépi…)
  • Return by helicopter to the Val-thorens drop-zone
  • Some off piste to end the day well and appreciate the fabulous colors of the sunset behind the white peaks…

Please do not hesitate to contact me for any further information.
