Half Price Ski DVD

8 Dec 2011

A great stocking filler for all skiing enthusiasts, our Off Piste Essentials DVD is only £10 (half RRP) plus £2 postage and packaging.

A great DVD covering skills and techniques for back country skiing and ski touring, including chapters on equipment, planning, safe travel, skinning uphill, snow sense, defensive skiing, using a rope, crevasse rescue and avalanche survival.

Here's a brief outline of what the DVD's about,

If you love skiing and are curious to duck under the ropes but lack the confidence then the first part of the DVD is just for you. It starts with an informative insight into the world of Off piste and Ski touring adventures. The 50 minute documentary follows a team of four skiers on their week-long holiday to the Austrian Alps. They progress from skiing off piste in a resort to a multi day tour through the mountains. So if you want to know what it's all about, what to carry, and how to start off safely you'll find this entertaining to watch, yet packed with top tips to answer all your questions.

Those with a little more experience, will have some more technical questions and this is where the ten fact filled chapters come in to their own. These are easily searchable chapters, which means navigating around the DVD is easy and straightforward, almost like using a website. You just click on the topic you want to cover and BAM - you're immersed in a professional instructional session, aimed right at you, in your own front room. We've taken all our experience from running courses in the Alps, and crammed years of expertise into several hours of techniques to help you deal with all your worst ski nightmares from the comfort of your armchair.

So if you're looking for a refreshing change from the normal cliff jumping ski movies, and actually want to learn more about skiing off piste, then check out Off Piste Essentials. Of course should the worst occur, and you get it wrong in avalanche terrain it''ll be your mates who will come looking for you. So you might just want to buy a copy of this for someone else!
