Level 5 Icelandic Ski Touring Adventure

Wow, what a trip!

The final Perfomance Breakthrough trip of Winter 2018 was our level 5 ski touring adventure in Iceland. We enjoyed some excellent Spring Touring in fabulous Icelandic wilderness.

Thanks to everyone who took part in this and all the other Perfomance Breakthrough clinics through the season.

There's a bigger, bolder programme in place for Winter 2019. It's mostly sold out already - thanks to everyone for coming back!

Level 4 Ski Touring Adventure - Gran Paradiso

Our Ski Touring adventure in Gran Paradiso was astounding - skinning up to 3000m high cols, followed by powder descents.

Our super Guide, Pete Mason judged the routes and the safety to perfection.

The whole team dug deep and  found the whole experience enjoyable and challenging  - the ideal adventure.

Spring or maybe still Winter and some Italian spice

As I write it is still snowing here in Chatel and we have so much snow this winter, the runs look so different wider smoother and so much space.

We are really excited  about the spring because we have taken on three new Italian Instructors who will bring some breadth to our team Iole, Giulia and Max, there will be two of them working per week with our usual team.

Skiing a 1100m vertical descent on Day 4 - not bad!!

Inspired by the skier cross and big air comps at the Olympics!? You won't get any points for style in the upcoming Red Bull Tout Schuss competition in Les Deux Alpes, you just have to go very, very fast to win!! It's taking place on the 31st of March and registration is open now.

Watch the trailer here...

Wow Zao!

Our final day in Zao Onsen was the best of all - great weather, great snow and adventurous skiing!

We were up close and personal with Zao's famous snow monsters and we even hiked up above the cornice on the headwall to access a great snowfield beyond,

That was an expedition reminiscent of many adventures on the headwalls of the Scottish corries.

A post from Zao Onsen, Japan

We're halfway through the BASS Performance Breakthrough clinic in Zao Onsen, Japan.

We're having a great time immersed in Japanese culture, skiing beautiful mountains in breathtaking snow conditions.

We have been made very welcome by the great Zao Freizeit Ski School. The Director, Mr.TATSUYA Echigo-san has skied with us for 4 days and we'll be meeting up with our friends from Freizeit later this evening.
