Monterosa Freeride

The Monterosa Ski area is a must for any serious off-piste skier. With its 4000 square kilometres of wild, untouched terrain the Monte Rosa always offers new opportunities and adventures to those skiers, snowboarders and telemarker willing to take up the challenge.

Also for those who are beginners and want to learn how to ski powder, the terrain on the southern flanks of the Monte Rosa offer wide, low angle bowls in which it is easy to acquire those necessary skills for the steeper couloirs.

There is no better and safer way to explore this wonderful area than under the expert guidance of our local mountain guides.

Zuba Ski work closely with local mountain guides to offer you a selection of off piste programmes, to suit your personal requirements and ability.

Some of these programmes can be a holiday in themselves lasting several days or a week, others can be incorporated in to your normal ski trip.

Freeride & Off-Piste Skiing Course

At Zuba Ski we like to mix education and personal development opportunities into your fun and winter adventure so our clients are able to get the very most out of their holidays. Also speak to us about our free-ride course and make sure that you and your family are prepared to enjoy the mountains to the full.

We build and package our Mountain Guiding programmes into fully inclusive bespoke packages. Many different levels of accommodation and cuisine are available so please contact us to discuss yours or your group’s individual requirements.

Off-piste skiing on virgin, isolated terrain is probably the best ski experience ever; absolute freedom without safety nets, boundary markers and signs!  Freedom, however, that abides by nature’s rules and not human ones.

The goal of these courses is to become aware of these “natural rules” while skiing the beautiful Monte Rosa off-piste terrain.
