Snoworks Off-Piste And Backcountry Courses Throughout Winter 2018

Here’s a selection of Snoworks ski courses on offer over the next two months in the lead up to and including the February holiday period.

It’s been one of the best starts to winter in years with significant snowfalls across Europe, especially in the northern French Alps, but Austria, Switzerland and Italy are all looking in good shape as we heard into the New Year.

And whilst avalanche danger is high in many areas, the longer term forecast suggests a consolidation of the snowpack followed by more fresh snow. Conditions off-piste should be excellent, but skiers must be aware of the potential dangers. Snoworks offer a number of off-piste and backcountry courses with highly qualified instructors and mountain guides who know the local areas – here’s a selection of courses on offer over the next two months in the lead up to and including the February holiday period.
