Freeride / Off-piste Riding Beginners' Lesson

Marius With: Marius
Bored of overcrowded or frozen slopes in the usual mountain resorts? So am I! Come with me for an initiation course in Romania's Carpathian Mountains to learn how to ride (ski or snowboard) off-piste on ungroomed trails and slopes, while learning about safety and protection. Flow on powder snow and enjoy the wild nature around you!

    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!
