Course Schedule
Courchevel & Les Trois Vallees
All terrain

Dates:  weeks commencing Saturday 15 December 2018, 5 January, 12 January and 23 March 2019

Coaches: Tom Kenny, Dave Beattie, Pat Cahill and Adrian Dunlop

Duration:  20 hours coaching, 4 hours per day

Skill level:  Intermediate skiers /  advanced and experts (minimum level would be Level 5 on our scale)

Course content: This 20 hour course is our most popular one and is aimed at developing the skills needed to ski the entire mountain.  Our coaches will work on your technical piste skiing then use these skills in an all terrain environment. The focus will then be to explore skiing on steeper slopes, bumps and some off piste. The course is very much designed around your individual goals and the instructor will always ask these questions on day one. It’s about your skiing aspirations. Where we come in is developing a specific plan to get you there. We have some of the best instructors in the French Alps, who are not only terrific skiers, but are also passionate about improving people’s skiing. We now all work with video and iPad feedback. This means we can video your skiing in the morning then use the iPad for playback either over a coffee or during lunch. This works well and makes a real difference.

Supplement: £170 per person / £300 per person for non skivo2 guests

Times: 11.30 – 16:00hrs over 5 days

3 vallées all day off piste ski exploration
Ski Course Schedule

Group size:  6 maximum

Duration: All day

Coaches:  Tom Kenny, Dave Beattie and Pat Cahill

Skill level:  Confident skiers with a sense of adventure who enjoy going off the beaten track!

Winter course content: It’s the height of winter in Courchevel and this all day course will explore the outer reaches of this huge ski area. January generally provides the best powder month in the Alps and our coaches will spend their day taking you to the very best pitches and terrain. This course is based almost entirely off piste and you need to be equipped accordingly for back country skiing. You will need transceiver, shovel and probe. You can hire this locally if needed.

Spring course content: This all day course will explore the outer reaches of Les Trois Vallées ski domain. It’s the perfect time of year to enjoy the magical experience of ‘corn/spring’ snow and enjoy skiing all over the valleys. Our team of coaches not only know where to find the very best snow but also where it is at specific times of the day. They will move around the mountain finding the best pitches and terrain as the sun softens the snow which makes for an amazing ski experience. Although we will return to the chalet each evening you will need to be fully equipped for back country skiing with transceiver, shovel and probe. You can hire this locally if needed.

Equipment needed: 30 litre winter rucksack; water bottle / hydration pack; suncream (factor 50+); sunhat; warm hat, sunnies; goggles; avalanche kit – transceiver, shovel, probe (*)

Bumps / Spring Snow Off Piste
Ski Course Schedule

Dates:  week commencing 6 April 2019

Duration: All day

Coaches:  Tom Kenny

Skill level:  Good intermediate skiers /  advanced and experts (minimum level would be Level 6 on our scale)

Course content:  During the last few seasons Tom Kenny has run a Bumps Specific Week.  This time of year is definitely the best time to run a course like this when you get great bumps in the late morning and afternoon as the snow softens (it makes them easier too which we all like!).  Generally the morning is spent working on drills and skills specific to bump skiing when the snow is firm and then taking these skills into the moguls.  It’s not a case of simply bashing up and down a bump field all day but using these skills to find the right line, control your speed and develop the bending and stretching of your legs to maintain good snow contact.  In addition to this there are often opportunities to enjoy some lovely spring snow in April (so we feel no guilt in enjoying this) although the course is very much aimed at skiers keen to improve their bump skiing.

Supplement: £220 per person / £320 per person for non skivo2 guests

Times: 09.00 – 16:00hrs over 5 days
