Coaching: our advice before skiing, during… and after!
The advice of Timothée Théaux before, during… and after skiing! Timothée Théaux, ski instructor at Val Thorens and a professional freerider, gives us his advice for a well prepared day on the slopes of the 3 Vallées.
“Before going skiing, I always read the BERA (Avalanche Risk Estimate Bulletin)
and the weather forecast to prepare my itinerary for the day. Then I consult the state of the PIDA (Avalanche Release Action Plan) to know which slopes and links are open in the 3 Vallées.
“During my day out, I try not to forget to hydrate myself and eat right to enhance my energy level to the maximum throughout my day. I also use a lot of the following apps to find my way around our mountains: the maps on the 3 Vallées app and on IphiGénie the IGN maps.“
“After the lifts have closed, I like to have a good time around a beer, debriefing, thinking back over the key passages of the day and preparing for the next one.”
To discover what lies at the end of the road, of course! Whether breathtaking views, an unmissable picnic spot, or a jacuzzi (really!), the mountain has more than a few tricks in its hiking backpack to entice you onto its paths!
