See more about BASS here.

BASS runs four levels of clinic.

Level 1: Skiers will learn to elevate their performance from the mechanical to the intuitive.

Ski with more power for less effort.

It's a five-day course that helps advanced skiers to restructure and refine their understanding of their performance.

Level 1 forms the foundation for all of the work to follow at:
  • Level 2, which is more physically demanding
  • Level 3, taken in more complex environments
  • Level 4 in more remote environments
Something to work towards: Level 4 Performance Clinics include heliski and ski touring adventures in Europe, Iceland, Canada, Chile & Japan.

New clients mst start at level 1.

Skiers must be able to ski safely on black runs to join a level 1 clinic.

What are you doing in March 2020?

A Breakthrough Level 1 clinic will take place in Morzine in Les Portes du Soleil.

Running from 16th - 20th March 2020, it's to be 5 days with a maximum of 6 clients.

Price: £745 per person.
