Wednesday August 16, 2017 - Email this article to a friend

Snoworks has 119 courses spanning 12 categories in 18 ski resorts across 10 countries. It's bigger than ever for Winter 17/18. NEW

Snoworks is a ski course company and is clearly looking forward to the coming winter season.

It is a partner of our here at PlanetSKI and we have known it directors and instructors for many years.

It is offering more courses than ever in all-mountain skiing, backcountry skiing and ski touring.

This is what Snoworks has specialised in since the late 90s.

And it's going stronger than ever.

"We are constantly adding new courses and destinations to our program as skiers look to push their own boundaries and discover all mountain skiing," Snoworks' director, Phil Smith, said.

"Our team of highly experienced and qualified instructors and mountain guides offer the best possible mix of safety, fun and learning, whether it's in our home of the French Alps or further afield in exotic locations such as Chile or Kyrgyzstan."
