Guide / Instructor, Safety Equipment, Meals, Accommodation
Do you want to spend more time in the powder? This is for you.
If you've spent a decent amount of time off piste already, and want to try a new area and ride with some new friends - A weeks local guiding in one of the biggest connected ski area's in the world will scratch that itch.
Most of the week will be lift-accessible backcountry, with one day at the end of the week reserved for a Splitboarding tour (your hire for this day is covered). With a small group of 6, and 2 guides you'll have lots of individual attention if you want to work on certain aspects of your riding.
The week will take you through varied terrain, from larch forests to big open bowls - you'll be riding decents of up to 1500m, from the high altitude reaches of 2700m above Sestriere.
You'll be staying in the Gran Hotel Sestriere, a 4-star hotel with it's own wellness centre to rest your legs for the next day. Chalet board means breakfast, afternoon tea and a dinner (Buffet style with appetizers, 2 courses and dessert). You'll be sharing a twin room with one of your camp mates.
