Wish to learn how to access this fairytale stuff that all the crazy-good skiers and snowboarders get all gooey about? SLOWderchase is aimed at getting you into good powder and learning how to ride it, deal with its challenges and be comfortable in it. Like a regular Powderchase: only the date is set for these powder trips into the Alps. What our destination will be, is decided last-minute by snow and weather forecasts. We’re warning you: your life will never be the same after this!
We have received lots of feedback over the years about people that either feel they lack the true skills for off-piste/powder/backcountry needed to go on a Powderchase or are a little intimidated by how ‘good’ the other participants of a Powderchase would be (and how bad that would make them look).
It’s practically identical to a regular Powderchase but aimed at people that want to learn how to ride powder. And falling in powder. And getting back up again. All at a much easier pace with a group that has the same intentions. For all three days you will be accompanied by both a certified local instructor and a highly experienced tailguide from Powderchase that will teach you all the little tricks and tips to move around the backcountry easier and more efficient, so you have more energy to have fun!
We assume you don’t have avalanche safety gear, so the rental of a set is included in the price of a SLOWderchase. The SLOWderchase will take place during the regular Powderchase that is held this weekend, but will follow its own daily schedule.
