Why choose this weekend over our normal Ski weekend courses?
This is not a course, it is a guided experience, offering 2 days of guided skiing with our Ski Guides, Instructors and Black Crows athletes. This is about the ski experience - with instruction a part of the day out! Oh and we've got a band in the evening and the Ski industry's best brands to chat to. Chat to Black Crows athletes and learn from some talented skiers.
So, what will you do and how fit do you need to be?
Discover the Wildside
Introductory level. For skiers fresh out of the nest or still learning to master the difficult, unpredictable, challenging, but ultimately emotionally enriching offpiste backcountry skiing. When you book this package you’ll be heading off for a unique journey exploring the mellow, friendly wide slopes of the Cairngorms. Use this as your perfect classroom to ask all your burning questions and practice & perfect your backcountry turns. For example one objective could be the classic tour of the Northern Corries before cruising down Lurchers Gully, trusting your guide to find the best routes available.
Fitness and Ski Ability: You are confident on blue pistes and enjoy skiing with smooth, rhythmic turns. You need to be fit enough to ski all day, with few stops or breaks.
