About Fresh Tracks
Fresh Tracks was created for snowboarders wanting to go steeper, deeper and further into the back country. Our philosophy is to guide snowboarders to new and exciting off piste terrain, challenge them technically and physically and teach them how to safely rip down those powder runs with style.
Fresh Tracks specializes in off piste lessons from beginner to experienced riders. We offer private coaching, guiding and avalanche training throughout the season. We run several group courses that are 1, 2 or 4 days long depending on the course with a minimum of 3 riders and a maximum of 6 riders. We also accept mixed groups of skiers and boarders or skier only groups for our guiding or avalanche training options.
Fresh Tracks is based in Verbier which is very well known for its off piste terrain. Verbier has a huge variety of off piste ranging from huge open bowls to the extreme steep and narrow making it a perfect mountain playground for some of the best freeriders in the world. Verbier also hosts one of the steepest off piste competitions in the world, the Verbier Extreme, which is the final event of the Freeride World Tour.
Fresh Tracks was established by Andre Israel aka Dre who discovered his passion for snowboarding 29 years ago and has to date spent 27 seasons in the mountains. Dre has been coaching and guiding now for 19 years, 18 of which were spent in Verbier. During those years Dre has achieved his top Swiss, French and English snowboard qualifications which has helped him to expand his knowledge on the many different styles of riding. Dre has also become a permanent resident of Verbier and now one of the very few off piste snowboard guides there.
