Splitboard Hut Trip

Splitboard Hut Trip - Description

The Col du Grand Saint Bernard is the dream splitboard destination, situated at 2469m on the Swiss / Italian border and home to one of the most comfortable mountain refuges you will find in the alps! The remote setting is not only stunning, but surrounded by a wealth of summits suitable for splitboarding on both sides of the frontier. Trust us, there is enough snowboard terrain here to last you a season’s stay on the Col!

You will stay at the famous Grand Saint Bernard Hospice, a 10th century monastery, which is still run by monks who offer you a warm welcome. The Hospice, which can only be reached by skis in winter, provides an excellent base from which to ski tour and also offers options for a hut-to-hut splitboard trip.

3 full days of backcountry guiding & 2 nights accommodation

Travelling alone? Not a problem!

Our snowboard camps are designed for solo-travellers and those joining in small groups.

With the vast majority joining as singles, our snowboard trips are the perfect way to meet like-minded people and expand your snowboard crew.

Enjoy a week progressing your snowboarding with expert tuition, learning in a small group with others of the same level… and by day 2 you will already have a bunch of new snowboard friends! If you have any concerns about booking a snowboard holiday alone, no need to worry, our office team is here to help make everything simple & easy.

Is this for me?

This course is ideal for experienced snowboarders wishing to gain more backcountry skills and visit a unique alpine destination.

Previous off piste experience is essential and splitboarding experience is desirable, although not a necessity. People with no previous splitboard experience may join the course provided they are fit and strong off piste riders.

A good level of aerobic fitness is important as a typical day will involve 3-4 hours + of uphill skinning (around 1000m of height gain). Once at the summit you will also need plenty of energy & strength for long backcountry descents!

Please get in touch if you would like further clarification on the requirements for this course.



Accommodation

The Grand St Bernard Hospice is a unique place to stay, originally founded in 1045 as a place of refuge for travellers crossing the alps. These days, as mountain refuges go, it is extremely comfortable with proper comfy beds and hot showers. The huge building also hosts a fascinating alpine museum and several chapels. The hospice can only be accessed by foot (or ski) in winter, giving it a very remote feel.
