What we will do

The meeting is at 8.30 a.m. at the ski school in Prali, in the province of Turin, where we will meet our ski-mountaineering instructor.

After a quick briefing on the activity and compulsory safety equipment, our first lesson will begin. In fact, the basic course will be divided into 5 lessons (one per week on either Monday, Friday or Saturday).

During the course, we will learn descent techniques on the various types of snow (fresh, wet, crusty, lumpy, powdery...), we will learn to gain confidence off the beaten track, and we will discover the secrets of enjoying skiing after fatigue. All of this while paying special attention to safety and the use of the obligatory equipment for this activity (shovel, artva and probe).

We willenjoy the most beautiful ascents and descents of the GermanascaValley, starting out together and reaching an altitude of around 600/700 metres, and then focusing on descent techniques. If climbing in fact requires training, descending requires technique!

The return is scheduled for around 13.30. The last lesson will be at night, from 17.00 to 22.00, when we will be able to enjoy the mountain in the magnificent setting of the sunset.

The activity lasts 5 hours (for 5 days).

The activity is suitable for everyone over the age of 14.
