The weather hasn’t failed to please this season in Verbier. With the best conditions in several years, deep powder snow, cold temperatures and sunshine to boot, it couldn’t get better. Verbier is renowned for it’s extensive ski area. With 410km of pistes and lift accessible freeride skiing there is more than enough to explore on a week in Verbier…or a season even! The famous itinerary runs such as Tortin, Mt Gele and Vallon d’Arby have been perfect for the advanced and expert skier.
This winter, the Warren Smith Ski Academy late season courses are guaranteed to take place in excellent conditions. The 5 day group and supergroup courses are run from Sunday to Friday with the Wednesday off. They are designed to build and develop skill and confidence, to enable people to ski all terrains including Moguls, Steeps, Variables, Powder and how to Carve effectively on piste. Skills are developed during the coaching by practicing specific exercises that benefit the main topics. Progressively, the new levels of skill are tested in suitable terrains to build confidence.
During the group courses each skier is also looked at from an individual point of view due to the fact that we are all individuals and have different strengths and weaknesses that need identifying and developing.
