We answer your questions
Do I need to have specific equipment?
esf will provide you with the avalanche detector, shovel and probe. You can rent ski equipment adapted to off-piste. Don't forget to bring a helmet, something to hydrate you and a snack.
I have never done off-piste before, but I have a good level of ski. Which level should I choose? 
The ride pack has 3 levels. The novice level is for those who have a good level of ski who want to discover off-piste. 
I already know the good off-piste areas in the resort. What else will the pack ride give me?
In addition to safety training, the instructor will give you technical advice on how to ski with greater ease and safety. With their knowledge of the terrain they will always find the best spot with the best snow and can organise outings to Briançon or Italy with a return bus.
