After the success of 2023, there was never any doubt that we will be back in Sestriere in 2024! MINT Snowboarding brings you 5 full days of professional backcountry snowboard guiding, hotel accommodation and amazing Italian food in the epic freeride paradise of Sestriere Italy.

During the week you will get out and explore the backcountry terrain of the extensive ‘Milky Way’ ski area, snowboarding a mix of terrain all easily accessed straight off the lifts, or with a short hike. As with all our courses, throughout the week our coaching will continue to develop your backcountry skills by advancing your off-piste technical riding and developing your knowledge of backcountry safety and avalanche search & rescue techniques. If conditions allow, you will also experience 1 day of splitboard touring to get you even deeper into the backcountry.

Is it for me?

This backcountry course based in Italy is for advanced level riders with a good amount of previous off piste experience. This should include riding a variety of terrain and snow conditions, including tree runs and steeper slopes. You should have a good level of fitness to ensure that you get the most of the week as well as enjoy the splitboard day (cardio fitness is most important here). No previous splitboard experience is necessary. You are looking to explore challenging and exciting terrain at a fast pace with the safety and knowledge of a professional mountain guide to lead the way.
