What a season, when will it stop snowing? People are commenting ” what a great winter we are having this spring “.
Last week myself and Alpinecoaching trainer / ISIA ski teacher Guy Nason ran our Easter course programme in Hinterux Austria. Conditions on the glacier provided fantastic skiing both on and off piste.
Some of the best powder of the season was accessible with a simple traverse off the piste. No helicopter, walking or skinning required. One day we skied with the groups over 1000 metres of untracked powder in the first morning with not a person to share it with ( shame )
With both Guy and myself coaching it allowed us to set up some ” workshops ” as some of our groups had very specific goals working towards the up and coming BASI instructors courses.
It’s was without a doubt an All Mountain experience with the glacier and resort facilities providing exceptional conditions and service levels.
I’ve been back to The Snow Centre for a week where we are just coming to the end of our Easter holiday courses. The centre had remained busy ( partly due to the endless winter ) and I can report this had been our busiest season since opening almost 4 years ago. People are really tuning in to urban Snowsports and what a great facility we have.
Short trip back to the UK for me as tomorrow I head back out to Hintertux Austria for 2 weeks to join the team of BASI trainers running the spring instructors courses.
Following these two weeks there is still one last opportunity to enjoy this epic winter with us back on the glacier. We will be running our spring course 25th May over the Whitsun week, and with the snow still falling it looks very promising.
Following that course I WILL be seeking some sun before it all starts again!
