1 week ski course - Alps

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
I know there is a similar thread already but I am looking specifically for a 1-week ski course in the Alps mid-late January. Does anyone have any recommendations?

Ideally I would like it to be not too expensive. I consider myself a good intermediate skier. Happy on all pisted runs. Calving and short turns are coming along well but could be better. Not so confident on moguls and never skied off-piste.

Any recommendation or ideas would be gratefully received!

Hi @MancSkier,

Have you looked at Inside Out's trips, e.g. http://www.insideoutskiing.com/holidays.html#5 - they certainly cater to the 'good intermediate' market - I did a different course of theirs in that resort last year and it was great (And the snow making is excellent, so no need to worry about snow cover)

You might also look at a Bash, e.g. the MyAshBash (where tuition is available - although probably more aimed at beginners / early improvers) http://snowheads.com/ski-forum/viewtopic.php?t=52715

Being Italy there won't be a mogul in sight on either of those. Toofy Grin

 Well, the person's real but it's just a made up name, see?

Thanks for that! Yes looked at Insideout and that is the level I am looking for - unfortunately they don't seem to be going the week I want to go to tie in with another trip... however, definite possibility.

I would like something gnarlier than the MyAshBash I think.....

UCPA might be worth a look if you haven't already. Different courses in different areas but could probably suit, in particular something that involves an intro to off piste. Not done a trip myself but plenty of others have and recommend it.

 Anyway, snowHeads is much more fun if you do.

Thanks for that. Looked at their website and they seem to offer the best options I've seen.

Also Icesi in Val D Isere- http://www.icesi.org/ski-performance-course.asp
They do one week courses in Jan which slot into the longer courses they do for keen recreational skiers and BASI qualifications. We did 4 weeks with them in Jan 2016 and we had some people join for a week at atma time as we went along. Fantastic tuition from Mark Jones, Rupert Tildesley, Dave Cowell..cannot speak highly enough.

Warren Smith would fit the bill. I have done their summer course for a week in Cervinia but hear equally good things about their courses in Verbier
