MINT Snowboarding since 2006. Award winning snowboard school

May splitboarding in the Portes du Soleil!

There’s no denying the weather this winter has been a little off kilter throughout the European Alps. Winter started with the snow being shy to show up early season, with a change in weather early February followed by epic snow fall through March, April AND May! OK so the ski lifts are now shut, but splitboarding rules!

We already shared with you photos the enormous quantities of snow in Avoriaz in March.

Now it’s time to show you the conditions in Avoriaz in May! There have been frequent powder days through May, with snow falling right down to village level in Morzine many times (to our joy, although not sure everyone has felt that way).

So splitboards have been out and we’ve earn’t our turns, each time being rewarded with the mountains to ourselves and an endless choice of untracked descents. Maybe next year a May splitboarding course might be on the cards!
