Off piste skiing

  • Off the charts off-piste

    Are you a powder hound? Is a knee-deep dump of snow your tonic? We'll tell you where to find miles of terrain, the best ski areas and even tuition - if you need help taking things up a notch.

    Chamonix in France is considered a promised land of extreme sports and has neither a shortage of powder nor believers in the claim that it's home to the world's best off-piste skiing. If it's your first foray into off-piste, Les Houches and Domaine de Balme - at either end of the Chamonix Valley - are ideal jumping-off points.

    Soldeu in Andorra can mix it with the best of them, in terms of size, and is part of the imposing Grandvalira ski area. There are off-piste adventures to be had in the freeride zones at Pic Blanc and in the bowl above Riba Escorxada. Because most skiers in Soldeu are beginners and early intermediates, off-piste routes can go undisturbed for days.
