Off Piste Improvers (Part 2)

3 more days of sunshine to finish the week with the Off Piste Improvers group.
Wednesday we went back to Les Grands Montets, for some 'coaching on the move' on the chalky wind-buffed snow.
On Thursday we drove back through the tunnel to Courmayeur. A run from the Arp down to Val Veni gave some of the best snow for the last 2 weeks, with spindrift on a smooth base giving velvety smooth & super soft skiing!

Steve with Petit Mont Blanc and Aiguille des Glaciers behind:

John starts the section of great "spindrift powder" - 20 seconds after a skier had made tracks they were covered again!

Yesterday was a 'maximum mileage' day to give the team lots of time to put into action all the developments from the week with a full & varied tour of all that the Grands Montets has to offer with good snow off the top cable car, and even some softened spring snow in the Lavancher bowl!

The team ripping up some smooth chalkiness:

There are still spaces left on the remaining off-piste coaching courses this year, so don't hesitate to get in touch to book your spot...
