Pole Plant Ski Poles

Want something different?  Bamboo ski poles are back :-)

Our bamboo poles are at least 2x stronger than traditional aluminium poles under constant load, and even better when it comes to quick impacts due to their natural flex: they bend.​

Our ski poles are individually made by hand from natural bamboo canes, making each piece one of a kind. Classic and stylish. They can also be customised with different types and colour handles and baskets, and engraving your name, favourite phrase or personal motto.​

Piste Improver Ski Weeks

BASS Chamonix Piste Improver Weeks

Piste Improver and Piste Master Week Courses in the Chamonix Valley.

Join us this year for some special weeks imporoving your piste skiing.

We have 2 levels specifically designed to help you get the most from you holiday:

Piste Improver

Piste skiers who have taken time to develop onto most runs but have not yet mastered the control on varying degrees of slopes and textures of snow.  Confidence still needs to be built through practicing a range of tactical skills so that any groomed slope is achievable at the speed that suits you.

What ski level am I?


How do I know what level I am?  This a question we get asked by many clients wishing to book ski lessons.


It is probably one of the most important questions to know the answer to as it helps you book into the correct Group Class or gives your Private Lesson instructor the knowledge to help plan and structure your lesson and choose the most suitable terrain for you so that you can achieve your goals safely and successfully.

Best Skiing Ever!

We asked a few of you, what were the top three things that make the best skiing holiday? Here’s the verdict:

  • Your Availability – Of course we're going to put that first ;)
  1. More Confidence in my skiing
  2. Good Choice of Skiing for everyone / Keeping everyone happy.
  3. Snow Conditions

Ok so we really can help with every single one of those things – I know you’re probably thinking how are we going to help ‘snow conditions’, well I'll get to that.
