Notes from the Publisher about Off piste skiing with Wayne Watson
Off-piste is real skiing. The conditions are ever changing and the skiing is always challenging. With a little effort and by using knowledge and experience, you can get away from the crowds and the hustle and bustle of the resorts and lift systems. Out where it really is a different world.
Unfortunately, many skiers think that off-piste skiing is beyond them, reserved only for the advanced and experienced. They have images of the steep and deep, of narrow rocky couloirs and other such terrifying places. These places do exist, but off-piste also has a gentle side. With a little help and the right conditions, any intermediate skier can enjoy the thrill and freedom of skiing 'out of bounds' - in flattering snow, on gentle slopes, and in stunning scenery.
Off Piste … with Wayne Watson takes you away from the urban feel of ski resorts into an exciting and breathtaking new skiing world; experience the adrenalin and camaraderie produced from this sometimes unpredictable and dangerous environment.
This book is full of invaluable tips and techniques to help you deal with the different snow conditions and varied terrain found in the backcountry. From traversing to setting up for the first turn, and from fragile spring snow to the steep and deep. Also learn about off-piste procedures, etiquette and snow management. And find out how to minimise the risks and make your off-piste skiing as safe and rewarding as possible.
