Off-Piste Ski course. BTR. Baqueira Beret.

cursNeusNoTractades

Off-piste ski (or freeride) is the freedom to ski everywhere, be it powder, hard snow, crust or spring snow.

Freedom and, therefore, commitment with the natural environment that surrounds us whilst we enjoy meters and meters of downhill skiing. We will use Boí Taüll Resort’s lifts to get to the best slopes and couloirs of their ski area.

The course is addressed to those “cardboard skiers” (groomed slopes) who wish to taste, or have already tasted, the feeling of authentic freedom that ungroomed snow offers.

Dates: from December to April
Place
: Boí Taull Resort / Baqueira Beret
Type of activity: Off-piste ski course
Price: 80€ per participant
