2016-17 Winter Season:
Saas Fee, Switzerland.
Optimum Snowsports – October – April
I am based here in Saas Fee from Oct/Nov through to April. Saas is known for being a snow sure resort with a glacier that operates throughout the summer and winter. The main part of the resort opens up in November and provides a perfect playground for those looking to ride each season. The glacier sees a lot of professionals training through out the autumn months in the Stomping Ground terrain park and SBX course. Mid winter the park is a little more playful and is situated lower down the mountain where the weather is more favourable.
Saas Fee is a perfect destination for those looking to improve. The slopes are quiet compared to other big name resorts whilst the snow is epic. There are itinerary routes are offered for those wanted to explore off piste without the need for a guide. The park might not be on the same size as the Stomping Ground they build for the professionals it is a good size for those seeking to develop their skills.
At Optimum Snowsports we currently offer group and private lessons in ski, snowboard and tele. For the 2017/18 winter season we will offer a greater range of products specifically for the snowboarders. The season will start with Instructor Training programmes for those seeking to to teach snowboarding. These will start in October and November. If you are interested in gaining your Level 1 or 2 instructor licence then please let me know. Throughout the season we will also have week long camps for intermediate and advanced riders. Specific camps for off piste riding, Turn and Burn camp for those looking to explore carve turns across the whole mountain and intro to freestyle camps.
