Do you want to head away from the ski lifts and discover the freedom of the mountains? Splitboarding is all about strapping in, trekking out and riding untracked terrain that just isn’t possible to get to by hiking. Skiers have had this luxury forever, now it’s your turn!

Join us for a week in the freeride paradise of Sestriere, Italy, for 5 full days of backcountry guiding along with hotel accommodation and some epic Italian food. This course is a great way to get into splitboarding for the first time or to refine your skills, carry on your learning and discover somewhere new. The week will include both splitboarding and lift accessed backcountry riding with weather & snow conditions dictating the mix.

Is it for me?

This splitboard backcountry course 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. No previous splitboard experience is necessary. You are looking to get out into the Italian backcountry, explore challenging and exciting terrain with the safety and knowledge of a professional mountain guide to lead the way.

A good level of fitness for this course is essential to make sure you get the most out of each day (in particular, cardio fitness is most important here).
