OUR MISSION – LIFE ELEVATED
We take adventurous-minded skiers and boarders to exotic destinations around the world to experience the adventure of powder and cultural immersion. What does that look like? Something like this……
Adventure is not just a one-time thing for us – it’s a lifestyle. We craft custom trips for Adventurers by combining some of our favorite things in life: SKIING and RIDING, TRAVEL and CULTURE, POWDER and EXOTIC TERRAIN…oh, and more POWDER! If these are the things you’re ready to experience in life, then book a trip with us and live LIFE ELEVATED.
HOW WE DO IT
WE COORDINATE | WE INSTRUCT | WE GUIDE
Why not rip it up on the slopes of new terrain and get better at your skiing/riding at the same time? We organize everything you will need at the destination: your accommodation, food, transfers, guiding and other fun stuff.
We’re unlike any other…the only outfit in Gulmarg, and other ski destinations of the world:
- that has two guides per group
- that has one Western guide and one local guide per group
- to have the most comprehensive avalanche safety training program for guests
- to stay at only the best hotels
- that is not just a guiding service – we also have several fully certified ski and snowboard instructors on staff for feedback and improving technique
We’ll take you around the mountain and work on your skiing and boarding and take you to the next level. You’ll work in a small group of similar level skiers/boarders with the same coach for 2 weeks, so you’ll have plenty of time to improve your skills.
We operate in small groups with a client to guide ratio of 5 or 6 guests to one guide. All our guides are passionate and experienced ski or snowboard instructors with excellent backcountry experience (please check out the guides section to learn more about your guide) and we really want to help you improve you skiing or boarding.
Just spending 2 weeks with the same guide and the same group, riding powder all day will really help your ability by itself. However, as our guides are all experienced instructors as well, they can give you as much feedback on your riding as you want. We can also do some video analysis of your riding to really help you improve.
Our clinics are the ideal opportunity to learn how to ride in the backcountry. Whilst all or our trips are resort-based, there are still many areas that we can access with some hiking or skinning whether it be in the resort itself, or by passing through backcountry gates out of the resort boundary. We can show you how to use skins to make hiking a lot easier. If you’ve never used a transceiver before, we will show you how to do a preliminary beacon search and then a pin-point search with your probe. Then we can work on efficient shoveling techniques to extract the potential victim as quickly as possible. Ideally our goal is to not have to use any of those skills for real and we try to minimize as much risk as possible by following protocol for traveling in potential avalanche terrain and by keeping informed of current snow conditions.
