- Half Board
- Small group
- Varied and challenging off-piste
- Good snow record
Morzine is an ideal resort for our off-piste performance courses. The resort has an excellent snow record and really extensive off-piste options most of which is accessible from the liftsystem.
5 full days off-piste instruction plus 1 'freeskiing' day when no instruction is provided.
The principal aims of these weeks are:
To provide first class off-piste ski instruction & tuition from professional, friendly Ski Instructors to radically improve your off piste skiing technique.
To give practical mountain awareness training on the hazards and risks associated with skiing off-piste particularly for avalanches.
To provide the opportunity to ski the best off piste in the Portes du Soleil ski region.
Itineraries vary depending on the composition of the group and the weather and snow conditions.
The Off-Piste Performance Foundation courses (Previously "Off-Piste Performance Level 4) are ideal for skiers who have never skied off-piste or have limited off-piste experience (less than 2 weeks). All participants need to be competent on-piste, capable of skiing parallel at a steady pace on all red runs whatever the conditions and easy black runs. These weeks will be run by Ski Instructors with focus on comprehensive off-piste instruction.
For the off-piste performance courses you need to have good allround fitness and stamina. We recommend that you prepare for any trip by running, cycling or any other keep-fit activity. Generally the fitter you are, the more fun you will have.
Morzine is part of the massive Porte du Soleil ski area. It really does offer something for everyone, particularly for boarders, who can also head to Avoriaz where they'll find a series of snowparks and a giant "ecological park" (loads of natural modules set off-piste between the trees)called the Stash. Beginners will appreciate some of the gentle local runs, which help on those first tentative days.
Morzine ski resort
Before becomming a ski resort, beautiful Morzine was originally a town in itself. This means that there is more to do than in your average purpose-built resort, with a decent selection of shops and more non-skiing activities than you will need in a week. Accommodation is varied in terms of size, age and price.
