All their guides speak English and are fully qualified ski instructors who can also give you useful tips on how to excel off-piste.
Safety equipment can be provided on your behalf but you are welcome to bring your own. Items that are mandatory are a transceiver, shovel and probe. They also ask that all clients wear helmets. Your guides will show you how to use all the kit, when you need to use it and why.
The guides take up to 4 people per group which is €140 for 2 hours, or if there is just 1 of you it is €88 for 2 hours. Whole day outings are also available.
They will provide you with the obligatory avalanche safety kit, transceiver, shovel and probe if you don't already have them. All you need to do is bring your helmet!
Firstrax also has a large ski and snowboard rental shop, so you can organise your lessons and pick up your equipment all under the same roof.
Who should go...
If you have not already tried going off-piste before, then this would be a fantastic first time experience in complete safety, suitable for those that are confident on red and black runs.
If you regularly head straight for the powder, then these guides are definitely worth booking to show you the best as well as safest parts to explore in this resort.
- "I personally skied with Luca (owner of ski school) - he was an incredible skier and insightful about the mountain. He pushed us to our limits with off piste skiing I would never have had the confidence to do without him. After every class I fell more and more in love with the sport. We were videoed to show technique and always felt we were a priority. The terrain and area we skied was remarkable!" - Trip Advisor
- "The best ski school in Les Deux-Alpes" - Trip Advisor
- "We picked Firstrax because of their policy on only having small group classes. Our instructor Luca was excellent, knew the mountains really well and massively improved my skiing in the three lessons we had with him. I learnt and did more in those three days than I did in a week on a previous skiing holiday. Thank you Luca!" - Trip Advisor
- "It's the second year running that we've had Luca as our instructor and he's maintained his high standards and excellent tuition. Apart from being amusing and full of interesting facts and local info, he caters well for all levels of skiier. We were a mixed group of intermediates , experienced and teenagers who wanted some fun stuff on the snowpark. He did not disappoint. Thanks, Luca!" - Trip Advisor
