Off-Piste

Skiing and boarding off the groomed runs such as in the woods, in the untracked bowls and on the back sides of the mountain is considered ‘off-piste’. As this snow has not been ‘groomed’ it is more difficult and potentially dangerous to ski. It is especially dangerous after a snowstorm because of possible avalanches and in the spring when the hot sun can cause the snow to become wet and unstable. As a beginner I would recommend that you should stick to the groomed runs.
