Antarctica Trip 2017 – Lydia

It has been nearly 4 years and I still find this the most peculiar and exceptional set of sentences to ever come out of my mouth: We went back country skiing in Antarctica. We sailed 5 days from Ushuaia, the most southern city in the world, to the Antarctic Peninsula and then spent 20 days […]

Freeride Portes du Soleil – Alice

A fantastic off-piste training (Nov 2017) in Hintertux left us wanting more! This time I wanted to get away with Epique a little longer, to a new destination. It became a freeride trip to Portes du Soleil (Jan 2018). With a fully loaded car (a small C1 is quickly full) I set out with my […]

Heli Skiing Bell 2 Lodge – Esther

A few years ago when I saw a video of my brother skiing through the deep snow, I was bouncing behind my computer. I thought that was cool!! He was heli-skiing in Canada. A wish was born with me. How wonderful it would be to experience that once in a lifetime. At the beginning of […]

My first time heli-skiing – Gwen

Can I ski well enough? I have been listening to the enthusiastic stories of my husband and son about heli-skiing for a few years now. Fantastic views, fabulous powder snow, the most beautiful thing there is to experience. I think it would be fun too, but I keep wondering if I could do that too? […]

Off-piste adventure with Epique! – Richard

Piste to Powder After years of mostly skiing on the slopes, something has changed in recent years: I prefer to ski outside the slopes as much as possible! Initially this often went by skiing just ‘next to’ the slopes, but now I know that with the right guidance, the off-piste world is much bigger and […]

When Michiel invited me to the Epique office, we looked together at which trips match my […]

Ski Technique Training in Snowworld – French

Every year I ski my last week of the season in Val Thorens. In the May holiday. Most people think I’m crazy that there is still skiing even then. Always those fanatics with that ski thing while you can also sit on the beach and, enjoying a cocktail, work on your summer complexion. On the […]

Ski touring in the Senja – Peter

The downside of the internet…every secret is soon no longer a secret. Your secret spot will be eaten by a bunch of grasshoppers in no time, or in this case will be destroyed. The advantage of the internet is that your to do list keeps getting longer. Something always comes along that you think can […]

Ski tours in the Sellrain – Luuk

After a very careful decision-making process, in season 17/18 my ‘tour ski group of friends’ chose the Sellrain group. Some slogans from the plan specially forged by Gijs-Jan: local Innsbruckers, rugged mountains, beautiful terrain, many alternative descents. Just like every year, there has been a shift in arrival and departure dates, logistics and materials. Fortunately, […]
