Try out ski touring half day or over a weekend ...


Would you like to head off the piste, over the ridge and down the other side of the mountain? Then ski touring is for you. Our half day introductory sessions open a whole new world…

Or, if you dream of heading off piste into the wilderness, over that white ridge and down the other side of the mountain to escape the crowded, groomed slopes, then ski touring is for you. Or if you have previously done so, but would like to brush up, try one of our two day introductory courses to see if this could take your enthusiasm for skiing to a new level…

Our courses run with only two participants all through winter. Ryan Air flies directly from Stansted to Lourdes airport every Saturday morning, returning every Tuesday. For an extra day or two on the slopes catch the overnight sleeper train and arrive at 6am Saturday in Toulouse, then mid-morning in Luz. Your return will have you at London St Pancras mid-morning Tuesday.
