Splitboard Backcountry Snowboard Course

13th – 17th March 2017

Splitboarding is all about strapping on, trekking out and riding deep backcountry powder that just isn’t possible to get to by hiking. Skiers have had this luxury forever, now it’s your turn!

The aim of this course is to introduce you to the essentials of splitboard touring and to take you to backcountry powder in the vast mountain areas of the Portes du Soleil.

Over five days you will learn fundamental splitboard touring techniques & skills including equipment and clothing, how to assess ascent/decent lines and avalanche & mountain awareness.

If you want adventure you have to earn it!

We also offer splitboard guiding for experienced splitboarders wanting to reach new lines and hunt out the best snow in Morzine and the Portes du Soleil.

Course Structure

Day 1: Warm up day with coaching in splitboard setup, touring techniques and a refresh of avalanche & mountain safety skills

Day 2: Splitboard adventure in the Portes du Soleil – including mountain safety awareness training on how to access terrain safely

Day 3: Splitboard adventure in the Portes du Soleil

Travelling alone? Not a problem! Our snowboard courses are designed with solo-travellers in mind. They are a great way to progress your snowboarding, learning in a small group with others of the same level… and you will end the week with a bunch of new snowboard friends!
