Ski Retreats

Ski Retreat with Ian McIntosh, Grand Massif, French Alps
Feb 10th – 17th 2019

North Face skier Ian McIntosh

We’ve got a bit of a legend joining us for our first off piste skiing retreat of 2019, Ian McIntosh! You may recognise Ian from TGR movies, which showcases his incredible skill of charging down big mountain faces, or from his Powder Magazine “Best Line Award” which he won for his crazy line in Alaska (see below).

We’re absolutely thrilled that Ian is coming to the Alps to join Uthrive Ski Retreats for a week to share with us his insight, experience and skills. Ian will be there to help you hone in on your off piste skiing technique but he will also teach you the importance of mental attitude and how this can contribute to your overall success as a skier. By tapping into the psyche of this amazing athlete it will change the way you look at a mountain and have a lasting impact on you and the passion you hold for this exhilarating sport. And if all that wasn’t enough, Ian will entertain us with his gripping stories from the backcountry as we relax in our beautiful chalet after a day on the slopes!
This trip will require a good level of skiing, don’t worry, no 50ft cliffs!! Off piste skiing & Ski Touring (weather & avalanche danger permitting)
