Mail for help.Help!!

Log in to snowHeads to make it MUCH better! Registration's totally free, of course, and makes snowHeads easier to use and to understand, gives better searching, filtering etc. as well as access to 'members only' forums, discounts and deals that U don't even know exist as a 'guest' user. (btw. 50,000+ snowHeads already know all this, making snowHeads the biggest, most active community of snow-heads in the UK, so you'll be in good company)..... When you register, you get our free weekly(-ish) snow report by email. It's rather good and not made up by tourist offices (or people that love the tourist office and want to marry it either)... We don't share your email address with anyone and we never send out any of those cheesy 'message from our partners' emails either. Anyway, snowHeads really is MUCH better when you're logged in - not least because you get to post your own messages complaining about things that annoy you like perhaps this banner which, incidentally, disappears when you log in :-)
Remember me:
durr, I forgot...

Intro to Off Piste

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hi all. Any recommendations for a 3-4 day intro to off-piste course in the Alps (including avalanche awareness/equipment training) for dad and 13yo son, aiming for Xmas/NY 2020/21 (so next season)? Assume we'll have to go private as group courses don't seem keen on younger teenagers mixing with adults (but happy to be corrected). Googling generates a range of results, but any particularly good experiences out there? Both of us are 7s per inside out (although lad has a much, much higher ceiling Sad ); neither of us have really ventured beyond a bit of side piste. Flexible as to resort, but mild preference for Chamonix/Courmayeur or 3Vs, as I know the scene there. Would self cater.

I did an off piste introduction with Snoworks and thought it was pretty good. These are group courses and they are likely fine for your son too, though you could always just call them to ask about that. They’re very friendly and helpful on the telephone. The course that I did was 5 days in Tignes just before Christmas, but I think they run 3V courses too.

yes snoworks have intro to off piste usually half day courses. you should be able to do them in either tignes or la tania (3vs) at that time of year. I'd check but dont think they have age restrictions and will provide safety equipment and training.
