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.

This course is led by David Gladwin, one of only a handful of professional snowboard instructors to hold the BASI Level 4 ISTD, French Carte Pro and UIAGM Mountain Guide qualification. Dave has the qualifications, knowledge and experience to take you further, deeper and steeper than pretty much anyone else in the world.

Duration

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.
