The most adventurous snow camp of last season is back! 180 km of ski runs and 200 km2 of glaciers covered in fresh powder located around a traditional alpine village. Sounds like a paradise? That’s right! The region is not called Monte Rosa FREERIDE PARADISE without a reason… If you’re not looking for a crowded ski resort full of bars and tourists, but want to experience some of the finest freeriding terrain on the planet, you have come to the right place. Our Backcountry Academy will give you unique chance to ski or snowboard with a professional IVBV / IFMGA guide. After a day filled with the best possible sensation of riding without boundries, you will be able to unwind in a great SPA at the finest hotel in the area. Italy, here we go!

There are places that make you fall in love from the first sight. That is exactly what happened when we arrived to Alagna for the first time. This Italian village is known for its unique mountain vibe, delicious cuisine and people that truly love the Alps. We had to come back for more and we know you want too… This is why we prepared more backcountry weeks in our offer. Check it out!

Backcountry and Heli Academy is not an accidental name of the camp. This is a perfectly organized camp from our new category – ZERO GRAVITY ADVENTURE!

During this week we are giving you a chance to ski, snowboard and train under the supervision of some of the most experienced guides in the world. Our IVBV/ IFMGA certified guide – Paweł Kunachowicz is going to give lectures about backcountry skiing, equipment and avalanche safety. Additionally, you will be able to add 1 to 6 days of guided backcountry tours with Paweł to your activities throughout the week. He is a team member of Chamonix VerticalHokkaido Powder Guides, a member of Polish Association of mountain guides IFMGA.
