backcountry snowboard...

We run a series of 3 day programmes throughout the Winter for those who want to venture away from the pistes in safety.

Our Snowboard programme is for those who wish to gain an introduction to off-piste boarding and touring.  It is for those who can already board off-piste and who would like to improve their technique and learn more about venturing further into the high mountains. We will spend our time on some of the finest runs that the Chamonix backcountry has to offer.  Your Guide will improve your technique in various snow conditions and also cover all the technical skills you need to make this exhilarating sport as safe as possible, for example, avalanche awareness, glacier boarding, crevasse rescue, use of safety equipment and the various equipment required for ascending.

With the programme being 3 days duration, it can be taken as part of a week’s holiday and provides an excellent start for all future backcountry boarding adventures. It is also possible to extend the programme by adding some Custom Snowboard Guiding to provide a progressive week of backcountry instruction and coaching.
