Skiing down a groomed piste is not the only thing to do whilst on a winter holiday. In recent years snowshoeing has become an increasingly popular way for people to discover the mountains. However, it is always better to be taught a good technique, and appreciate the potential dangers of the mountains.
ESF Vaujany offers snowshoeing excursions with a mountain guide who is able to give you good advice whilst at the same time making the experience an enjoyable one!

Have you seen the skiers whose bindings are not attached to their skis at the heels, and when they make a turn their knees are almost touching their skis?
Have you ever thought “how do they do that so elegantly”?
This is telemarking – not a new technique, but probably one you haven’t tried?
The Norwegian skier Sondre Norheim is know as the father of telemarking – a skiing techinque that uses elements of alpine and nordic skiing (“Telemark” being a region of Norway). In 1868 Norheim won the first national skiing competition, beating his younger competitors by a large margin. If this inspires you to try something a bit different, or just for fun, why not ask for a private lesson with one of our instructors who can telemark?
