Zermatt is a great place to ski off piste. We have plenty of slopes that aren’t continually flattened by the grooming machines, and we’d love to introduce you to the thrill of skiing off piste.
Take an off piste instructor and work on your off piste technique, learn how to use avalanche safety equipment and be able to head away from the crowds in search of powder. With terrain from easy to challenging there is something for everyone.
5 hour lessons can be straight through (e.g. 9am-2pm) or with a 1 hour break for lunch. (e.g. 9am-12pm & 1pm-3pm)

If heading off piste it’s worth making sure you head out with someone who is qualified and knows what they are doing.
