Piste-off.com : Worldwide Adventure Skiing

Piste-Off is the website for skiers and snowboarders who have become 'disillusioned' with the commercialism and crowds at the big downhill resorts in Europe and North America.

Worldwide Adventure Skiing

Site last updated Tuesday 22nd April 2014.

We aim to provide information and contacts on ski mountaineering, ski touring, off-piste skiing and piste skiing at the worlds wilder and more off-beat ski resorts.  We also run a small number of courses and expeditions  in some of the more interesting places to go ski-mountaineering.


COURSES & EXPEDITIONS

I run a small number of courses and expeditions through my main business ANDES. The links below will take you to details on this website for  the Scottish & European ski touring courses I run, and details on the Andes website for the South American ski trips I run to Chile, Bolivia and Argentina.
