Richard Barker from backcountry skiing specialists, Kicking Horse Powder Tours, and Emily Sarsfield, Team GB Skier, World Cup racer, Eurosport commentator and BASI Level 4 Instructor, are hosted by Rob Stewart from Ski Press to talk about all things off-piste and backcountry.

The Q&A style presentation will cover everything that people need to know to get into off-piste and backcountry skiing - from what backcountry skiing is, to the sort of experience needed to get out there and what to expect on a typical ski day. There will be discussion about gear choice and demos on how it all works along with a focus on technique for getting into powder skiing, fitness tips and skills improvement advice.
