This week is the first Jagged Globe Off Piste Introduction course of the winter, with 11 skiers split into 2 groups with myself and Neil Milne.
Conditions have been just about perfect, with 30cm of fresh snow on Sunday morning, and 2 days of blue skies to follow. So far I have been coaching Gavin, Gareth, Rowan, Andy and Steve, and the guys are all making good progress and getting to grips with the soft stuff...
Today we had first tracks down the top half of Les Avals - of course one of the down-sides of being a ski instructor is having to go first to check its safe..!

With more snow due on Wednesday night it looks like we are in for a good finish to the week, and this should also set things up nicely for next weeks Off Piste Improvers course in Tignes.
