Skiing and Snow Safety Course
January 30 - January 31
This is the first of three 2-day skills courses linked to the Argentière meet. You can pick any or all from: Skiing and Snow Safety, Skiing and Navigation, Skiing and Glacier Travel.
The aim is to increase competence in three distinct technical areas, specifically selected as relevant to Eagles by the new mentoring scheme. We will concentrate on improving these skills in a practical ski environment. In tandem with each course, Andy P will deliver off piste coaching to the group as we move around the mountain.
Eagles will be able to select any or all of the 3 modules, which will run in parallel with the meet based in Argentière.
“If you could deliver a course entitled How To Find The Best Snow, it would be a total winner” – Eagle Ski Club leader talking to Andy P in October 2016.
The aim of this course is twofold:
1. To examine where the best snow will be, and whether we can ski it without getting ourselves killed
2. While skiing all this fantastic snow, how we can get more fun units per turn by feeling more comfortable and confident with our ski technique.
