Make The Most Of Time On Snow With Top Tips From Alpine Tutorials

January 2023

These days, online ski tutorials are readily available. A quick google search will pull up hundreds of badly edited, poorly shot clips, with complex instructions on how to ski better. The new offering from BASI Level 4 (ISTD) ski instructor, George Treble, however, provides clear and concise video tutorials covering everything from top snowploughing tips, to off-piste safety advice.

Several of the Alpine Tutorial videos are available for free so you can get a taster of what’s to come before you, your clients or customers decide to invest in a full course (for a reasonable fee). The sessions don’t replace real-world instruction, but they are a great way to summarise skiing advice, refresh the essential ideas in off-piste safety, and inspire skiers and snowboarders to start learning more.

At the moment there are three courses available:

  1. A Head Start for Beginner Skiers

  2. From Beginner to Black Runs - The top 10 things to understand for your upcoming ski trip

  3. Off Piste Safety - For skiers and snowboarders (supported by BCA)

The off-piste safety course is designed to improve snow safety and avalanche awareness. Membership is designed to educate students over the course of the winter season, providing a fantastic and effective way to up-skill with online lessons and quizzes, a resource library, and a Facebook community to share queries and ideas.

“There seems to be a huge imbalance in the market. The industry is promoting backcountry exploration and the media is glorifying the dangers, but decent online safety education is relatively hard to find,” says George.

Creating safer and more successful off-piste skiers and snowboarders at a time when the backcountry has never been more accessible should be high priority for the snowsports industry. Alpine Tutorials is part of a bigger picture of snow safety education and instruction and is readily available for anyone with an internet connection.
