We are absolutely over the moon to let you know that we have won the award for ‘Best Snowsport School’ at the World Snow Awards!!! What a fantastic start to the season!!!
We wish to take this opportunity to say a HUGE thank you to everyone who supports us and recognises the huge efforts we go to to offer amazing snowboarding experiences. As a small independent company, up against some big, well known ski schools in our category, this award really does mean so much to us!
The World Snow Awards, established 6 years ago, honour the very best in the world of skiing and snowboarding, awarding brands, resorts, retailers, travel agents, tour operators and snow schools in the industry. The awards, presented by Telegraph Ski and Snowboard, recognise the top performers from the past winter and the most promising prospects for the winter season ahead.
MINT Snowboarding’s Directors Tammy Esten and Dave Simpson were at The Telegraph’s Ski and Snowboard Show ceremony to receive the award in London last week and to celebrate accordingly! 🍾🍾🍾
So how did we manage to win? What makes MINT Snowboarding so special?
WE HAVE A GREAT TEAM
Our snowboard instructors are second to none. They could not be higher qualified. They could not be more skilled. They are overflowing with passion for snowboarding and sharing this with you. And we are the sole snowboard school to have a Mountain Guide in the team! We are stoked to tell you that the whole of last year’s instructing team are back with us this year!
The office team are equally rad. They really do care that you are booked in for the right lessons to help you progress, or the right adventure to give you that buzz. They make sure the booking process is seamless and that you have all the information you need to get the most of your time with our instructing team. This year we are welcoming Martha to the office team – she looks forward to meeting you all at our desk in The Woods.
WE ARE IN THE BEST RESORTS
We operate in a fantastic area for snowboarders of all levels and interests. If you are a beginner or improver then Morzine & Les Gets offer endless wide, treelined pistes to cruise on. For freestyle riders, you simply can’t beat the snowparks available in Avoriaz. And for off piste & backcountry, we all know the Portes du Soleil ski area is vast and backcountry opportunities are just endless.
WE OFFER AN AMAZING EXPERIENCE
However many times you have ridden with us or whatever level you ride the experience with MINT Snowboarding is always second to none. Our amazing team of instructors and office staff love snowboarding as much as you do. They will look after you from initial contact through the end of your lesson and beyond, we are committed to giving you the best experience possible.
Throughout your holiday with us you will be amongst likeminded people who are passionate about making sure learning is fun. Whether you are a complete beginner riding on snow for the first time, want to ride tree runs, powder, bumps, learn new tricks or ride off-piste snow, our team will give you the confidence to conquer your snowboarding goals.
WE CARE ABOUT EVERYONE
In 2017 we made a charitable financial contribution to Snowcamp to support the awesome work which they carry out. Snowcamp offer real opportunities for inner city young people to experience snow sports, gain qualifications & life skills that will make real changes to their life.
This year MINT Snowboarding also teamed up with Protect Our Winters, an organisation led by the outdoor sports community, to generate awareness of the effects of climate change on our mountains.
If you’re keen to find out what makes MINT Snowboarding so special, why not join us in the Portes du Soleil for a private lesson, snowboard camp or course, group course, or a family snowboard holiday this winter.
MINT Snowboarding are stoked to have partnered up with Protect our Winters to help generate awareness of the effects of climate change on our mountains. It’s time to take positive action towards climate change.
