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 :-)

Off-piste guide in Pas de la Casa/Grau Roig

 Poster: A snowHead
Poster: A snowHead
Hello,

A few of us are looking for off-piste guide for a day in Pas de la Casa/Grau Roig...

We're intermediate so not after backcountry, just to learn the safe bits between the pistes that we can then explore on our own.

Anybody know where we can find one? Somewhere in town? The local ski school? You?

We'll be the 10-17 March...

Grandvalira actually have an "off piste" map : https://www.grandvalira.com/en/grandvalira-freeride-zones-map

Lots of the marked areas are alongside regular runs, so you might not need a guide. Otherwise ask the Grandvalira ski school, there is only one ski school in Grandvalira AFAIK

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

I used to work at the ski school in Soldeu.

There is a chap there called Stuart Fleming who runs the off piste ski touring for the area. He’s very knowledgable .... say Jules recommended him. He’s very well trained and has been there for many years.He’ll be at soldeu ski school. Can’t get better than him, as they have a monopoly on the mountain, so no independent guides, unless it’s changed in the last few years.

They have a freeride school now. Quite possibly that lad is involved with it. But yeah AFAIK there are no independent instructors that are able to work in resort.

If you do go it alone (which I don't recommend it you don't have a minimum of knowledge/experience [usual caveat]) then be wary of the steeps above Soldeu where several blacks come down to the plateau. It is known to slide, and sadly has charged the highest price more than once. There's absolutely tons of mellow stuff around Grandvalira though, if you're able to assess the risks (and of course have the gear).

You've picked a great time of year to find the goods, btw. Probability-wise it couldn't be better.

Thanks for the info! I will speak to Stuart. Yeah I wouldn't feel confident going it alone (even with a small group of us) as we don't have a lot of experience off piste. Only on the bits between runs / off the side / through trees etc. Don't need Art of Flight level stuff.
