If you're going skiing this winter be sure to pack the Off Piste Essentials DVD!

Leaving the confines of the piste to explore the mountains is truly exhilarating, and with the latest DVD from Plas y Brenin, the BMC and the MCofS you have all the essential info to do this as safely as possible. Watch the trailer to find out more.

Off Piste Essentials follows four friends exploring the mountains on single and multi day trips. Filmed in the Austrian alps, the skills covered are relevant to back country skiing and ski touring the world over.

A range of technical chapters expand upon the messages in the film, covering essential topics including safe travel, defensive skiing, understanding snow, avalanche survival and rescue, clothing and equipment and using a rope.

One happy viewer said, 'Brilliant! Just what I have been looking for for ages. Covers all the little basics that you need to know and aren't covered in the books I've read.'

Buy Off Piste Essentials in the BMC online shop.
