at it's Finest

Off-Piste Telemark Courses to Take your Telemark Skiing to the Next Level

Local backcountry guides who double up as specialist telemark coaches to ensure you get more from the mountain.

If you are a reasonably fit, experienced telemark skier and you're looking for an off-piste telemark skiing adventure, then the Tele Adventure course is for you.

Not Just about the Powder

The Tele Adventure focus is getting out into the backcountry and finding the best off-piste snow and terrain the Espace Killy has to offer. It's not just about telemarking the powder, we'll build solid skills to help you telemark all-terrain and snow conditions that you'll encounter off-piste. That said, if there's fresh powder then we'll be in it. That's where the local knowledge comes in.

Explore the Huge Variety of Backcountry Telemark Terrain

Come and experience the huge variety of off piste terrain for which Val d’Isere and Tignes are rightly world famous for. It simply has it all, from tree skiing in Fornet and La Daille, steep couloirs on Belvarde and Solaise and the open bowls of Chardonnet and Cugnai to name but a few.

Get Some Local Knowledge

Unlike other operators, we are on the hill every day, so we know the terrain and the snowpack's history, we know where it is safe to telemark each day. If it's tracked out, we know the secret spots to find the best snow. When off-piste, we carry and supply our guests with avalanche safety equipment.

A Variety of Feedback

We use video feedback to not only capture the action but also help you improve your skiing.
