Our Freeride Camps in Gulmarg were developed for guests who intend to learn how to ski in deep snow or who would like to improve their backcountry skiing skills. In addition to the deep powder skiing technique, we provide our course participants also with the required knowledge for the selection of safe routes and to assess the risk of avalanches.
Our powder snow courses are suitable for skiers of all levels who want learn how to ski in deep snow or want to improve their backcountry skiing technique.
Skiers who are capable of making controlled and constant turns on groomed red slopes are ready to start skiing in the backcountry. With professional coaching and the right freeriding skis, it will only take them a couple of days till they can enjoy the pleasures of skiing in deep powder snow!
In the freeride camps, the participants are prepared for skiing outside the groomed slopes. In a step-by-step approach, they are taught the techniques and behaviors required for safe and controlled backcountry skiing. The priorities defined for the day can change depending on the skill level and the learning progress of the participants.
The courses start at 09.00h and last 5 hours per day.
