Scotland offers a wide variety of ski mountaineering, and off piste skiing. With weather and conditions as variable as the terrain, a bespoke approach is likely to pay dividends.
Throughout the winter Off Piste Performance offers bespoke ski mountaineering and off piste skiing, at all levels of off piste skiing ability from beginner to experienced. We are already hearing from people who are planning to stay at home for the 2020-21 season, and are looking forward to skiing with clients in the Cairngorms, Lochaber and on Creag Meagaidh.
Scottish ski mountaineering has a long pedigree with the ascents of Munro's through to longer ski traverses being common from the 1900's onwards. The Scottish High Level Route, a traverse from the Deeside mountains to Ben Nevis being one of the longer prizes which has seen many attempts due to the requirement for good weather and snow cover. For the imaginative skier who desires a ski experience close to home Scotland offers a myriad of options.
We can accommodate most levels of ski ability. Ski instruction and coaching input can be delivered by BASI Level 3 and 4 Ski Instructors while exploratory ski mountaineering and ski touring is led by IFMGA Mountain Guides. You can expect to do some walking and be prepared to carry you skis for a reasonable distance. This is very much a starting point, and we look forward to chatting with you directly to agree a Bespoke Scotland experience for you. We know all good trips start with an idea, whether that is doing a specific summit of ski, a traverse of some popular peaks or skiing in a specific area. Contact us and let us know how we can help.
£270 per day.

What happens if there is no snow?
We really hope for a snowy winter in Scotland but it is well known that the snow conditions can be unpredictable. In the event of there being no snow then a full refund will be given. However, if conditions are difficult then the option remains to travel to another area, or practice skills (skiing or mountaineering).
