MINT Snowboarding was established in 2006 by founder and owner Tammy Esten.
The vision was to create a snowboard specific school which focused on using dedicated snowboard instructors who she knew would pass on the passion she has for snowboarding.
MINT Snowboarding provides top level snowboard instruction & coaching in the French Portes du Soleil ski resorts of Morzine, Avoriaz, Les Gets & Chatel as well as backcountry tours around the world. Our young, enthusiastic team of snowboard instructors are qualified to the highest level within snowboarding (via British BASI & equivalent). MINT’s instructors are all either British or fluent English speakers, offering easy to understand techniques and fun focused snowboard coaching for all levels. Our instructors skills lie both in their passion for snowboarding as well as their passion for teaching snowboarding.
MINT Snowboarding is the original dedicated snowboard school in the Portes du Soleil offering something for everyone. We can get you riding and keep you progressing whatever your level and focus, from first time on snow to sailing out of the pipe. MINT Snowboard School offers private tuition, group sessions, snowboard camps, gap courses, freestyle coaching & off-piste guiding… so however & whatever you wish to learn… you’re at the right place!
If it’s powder you are after, then we run a huge program of backcountry & splitboarding courses around the globe. We are proud to have David Gladwin on the team, who is one of just a handful of professional snowboard instructors to also hold the IFMGA Mountain Guide qualification.
If you still need convincing, then let us tell you more about our story. In 2016 MINT Snowboarding was awarded ‘Best Snowsports School’ at the World Snow Awards presented by The Telegraph Ski & Snowboard, an achievement we are very proud of!
