When winter comes around the bend, it is always advisable to check one’s knowledge and review basic safety rules. As snow falls and off-piste lines start looking so inviting come and meet us at La Chamoniarde. We offer advice and training courses to ski help you safely outside marked ski runs. Our training courses were designed to suit all skiers’ types: off-piste, ski touring or glacier skiing from beginners to experts.
