Hi @fosphenytoin, sounds like you’ll have a great time in Val-d'Isère this coming season.
From your previous posts, you appear to be the thinker type when it comes to skiing so I believe you can probably start the preseason preparation for off piste skiing starting with the head. A good read - Soft Skiing: The Secrets of Effortless, Low-Impact Skiing for Older Skiers by Lito Tejada-Flores. The aim of the book is to shift your primary perspective of skiing from one based upon athleticism, physicality and endurance to one based on technique, tactic and sustainability. Much more do-able and enjoyable for us non athletic types.
