Intro to Freeride

18th - 22nd January. 

This course is for snowboarders who have ridden a small amount of powder between the pistes and want to experience more of this. We will start by looking at the technical aspects of riding off-piste on gentle open faces.

 

We will discuss all the safety aspects of riding off-piste, including carrying out a transceiver search. Once comfortable riding off-piste we will explore some slightly steeper slopes and venture into the backcountry including a day split boarding. 

Progression Freeride

8th - 12th March.

This course is for the riders looking to push their off-piste riding, we will ride steeper slopes, narrow couloirs and technical descents. Focusing on the technical aspect of your riding and the tactical decisions needed to ride these slopes.

 

Throughout the week we will discuss the safety aspects of riding these descents including how to carry out transceiver searches. 

We will have a mixture of riding straight into lines, boot packing and split boarding during the week allowing us to access some of the amazing backcountry of the 'Espace Killy'
