Marius With: Marius 1
Bored of frozen or overcrowded slopes in the usual European mountain resorts? So am I! Come with me for an initiation course on how to ride (ski or snowboard) off-piste on ungroomed trails and slopes in Romania's Carpathian Mountains. You will also learn about safety & protection in winter sports. Get new sports skills and enjoy the wild nature of Romania!

    First, we learn about the #1 danger in off-piste riding. I will give you an introduction of the avalanche phenomena, travel techniques, decision making strategies and avalanche rescue (first aid techniques using the receiver, probe and shovel). You'll receive technical and scientific information about understanding of how and why avalanches occur, the factors that indicate and affect snow stability, and the forecasting process.

  • Learn how to freeride

    During freeride, off-piste or backcountry riding most of the time you will encounter heavy snow with ice or the most favourable one, powder snow. We'll learn the setup for different snow types, how to recognise them and, most importantly, the correct position while riding. Then, we go riding!
