Monday :

Meeting at 09:00 am at the bottom station of the Brévent cable car.
This Chamonix ski area has many 35° steep, short couloirs, ideal to learn steep off piste skiing techniques without real dangers in case of a fall.

Tuesday :

Ski area of Le Tour at the end of Chamonix Valley .
We will ski the ‘Couloirs des Posettes’: 800m of 35° to 40° steep sections. Depending on the conditions, we will try and ski it twice in one day. It's a great off psite skiing day

Wednesday :

We will ski at the Grand Montets, the most famous Chamonix off piste skiing area.
This ski resort has an immense variety of off-piste skiing, known world-wide. The snow stays light and fresh, due to the North Face of the Aiguille Verte, which shields it from the sun.
There are several shorter, 45° couloirs, in which we can practice our skills learned so far.

Thursday :

It is time to ski some steeper variations of the famous Vallée Blanche, the Grand Envers.
2800m of descent, with two sections up to 40°; a real off piste skiing experience on Chamonix glaciar terrain amongst huge crevasses.

Friday :

The ENSA Couloir in the Brévent ski area and the Couloir Rectiligne on the Grands Montets.
In total, 3500m of steep off piste skiing with an average of 40°. Without taking into account the superb slopes at the foot of the Drus, which you will discover after coming out of the Rectiligne Couloir.
This steep skiing clinic will finish in Chamonix, if we have enough snow..
