Getting into off-piste and backcountry skiing
Get away from the marked runs and start exploring the whole mountain.
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.
