Meetup Description: Hi everyone!
Are you bored to wait in line for skiing? Do you want to do ski down virgin terrains? This is a chance in expanding your skiing experience into a whole new level.
I want to take the introductory course of what the swiss call "Skitour" and the french "Ski randonee".
Skitour is basically a form of skiing where you hike up a mountain with special skibindings, then you ski down as you would do in a regular form. The advantage over regular skiing is that your more in connection with nature, you don?t pay any expensive liftticket, and you get to ski wonderful natural tracks down.
This is certainly with some risk if you don?t know the terrain and technic, hence the best way to start doing this sport is with a Schnupperkurs (or in other course, a relative cheap way to get some lessons) with an expert guide.
The course is over a whole weekend, from the 14th to the 15th of February in Diemtigtal, and the price include the stay in the hotel and food.
More details is described in german under http://www.bergpunkt.ch/kurse.php?id_nav_pages=23&view=2&gp_nr=20
You have to add to the price the Ski and boot rental of about CHF 75 for the weekend.
There are only 6 spots left for the course, but if there is really a lot of demand, then we can create our own course. In that case, it is possible, that we get a group discount.
For those interested, sign up with a "Yes". At one moment I will have to ask you to confirm and pay the corresponding price.
Please note that this course is only for good to expert skiers that have no problem in skiing black runs. However, powderski experience is not required, as this is part of the course itself.
More information will be posted on this site and emailed to you as soon as I get more info on it.
So, don't let this event pass you unnoticed!
