The heart of every snowboarder resides in backcountry and nothing comes close to the rewarding feeling you get from riding the deepest powder, leaving just fresh tracks and envious faces behind you.
So leave the crowds in the lift lines and enjoy endless new terrain in the best snow possible with our off-piste / backcountry snowboard lessons and split boarding tours in Morzine, Avoriaz and Les Gets.
We have 3 varieties of session to suit all abilities and levels of experience, catering for groups of 1-6 people.
The perfect blend of riding and practical education elements to begin your backcountry adventures. Learn the technical skills to float through off-piste terrain with fluid and effortless style, while covering all basic safety knowledge such as transceiver search and rescue, line selection and hazard identification.
Who needs a chairlift?! Split boarding is a liberating and rewarding development in snowboarding, allowing riders to explore even deeper into the backcountry and truly earn their turns.
Containing the same educational and technical content as our intro to off-piste course, we introduce you to the equipment and skills required to skin efficiently into a backcountry wonderland.
