All Mountain Intro : Baqueira-Beret, Spain
26 Jan - 2 Feb 2020 (Sun-Sun) £1,359
Our package price includes transfers, accommodation, lift pass, and four full days and a half-day coaching sessions plus an early evening tapas session on Tuesday in the local town of Vielha and sample some fantastic local wine/beer and tapas. Baqueira-Beret, located in the beautiful Pyrenees, has lots to offer with extensive pistes of all steepnesses and easily accessed, safe off-piste terrain.

This week is designed for skiers who are interested in tackling more of the mountain including steeper terrain, chopped up snow, bumps, and if we get fresh snow, some powder skiing! You may have tried skiing off the sides of pistes but struggled and are keen to gain confidence in tougher conditions.

We will be honing your all round skills with drills and exercises on piste but will be sampling different terrain and getting lots of mileage in variable snow conditions. Should the conditions allow our end of week goal will be to ski a tough black, a couloir, or possibly, an un-pisted itinerary run. No need for fat skis or avalanche equipment, normal all mountain skis will be fine.

This holiday is suitable for confident level 7 and higher skiers who would consider themselves off-piste Aspirers willing to venture off piste on easy slopes (green-easy blue). Limited off piste experience, from none to a few days with a desire to improve while skiing tougher conditions such as icy slopes, steeps, bumps and chopped up snow. Relatively fit with the attitude and aptitude to progress.

Skiing

Baqueira-Beret, Spain
Is considered Spain's premier resort and is a short two hour transfer from Toulouse airport.

The slopes are split into three distinct but well-connected areas - Baqueira, Beret and Bonaigua - with long, intermediate runs, practically all of them on open, treeless slopes. Most are above 1800m with extensive snowmaking and for those considering offsite skiing there is extensive terrain with three un-groomed itinerary runs that are avalanche controlled. A review in the Telegraph is very favourable!

This holiday is suitable for level 6 and higher skiers.
