We usually carry out the freeride course day in the ski resort that, at the time of coming, has the best snow conditions, Panticosa, Formigal, Piau Engaly….
In descent we will develop all the existing techniques and correct the mistakes made by each of you that do not allow you to apply the technique well. Before starting with the practical part, we would stay in a cafeteria in the area to show you a small powerpoint to prevent avalanches and draw suitable lines in descent. This would take us 30 min. Then we would go on to conduct a search for victims of avalanche with the ARVA, the PALA AND the PROBE and then start skiing.
We will be attentive to the snowfall to give you long teeth. You can join us on this panoramic view from Pic du Midi de Bigorre to 2877m.
Remember that this course will sooner or later take you, if you are not already, to a wonderful sport. called mountain skiing.
Virgin snow requires the application of specific downward turning techniques. The powder snow, the crust, the icy snow and the spring snow, pose to the skier a specific transition in each movement to get to enjoy a pleasant descent, with self-control over all the elements that are involved in this activity.
