MINT Snowboarding since 2006. Award winning snowboard school

Spring riding in the Portes du Soleil

February and early March 2016 have bought snow in epic proportions to the Portes du Soleil. Any signs of the rather temperamental start to this season have well and truly been snowed away!

The photos below of Avoriaz prove this, with buildings literally buried in snow whist paths are tunnelled out so people can get in! These are scenes more commonly associated with January, than mid-March… you definitely wouldn’t think that it is now officially spring!

Avoriaz is staying open until 24th April 2016, giving us 6 more weeks of snowboarding (or skiing) left! With this amount of snow in resort, spring snowboarding is set to be awesome this year!

Want to make the most of these conditions and fit in one more snowboard holiday this winter? We got two equally awesome weeks running this April:

Snowboard Skills Week, 10th – 17th April 2016: The insanely good value Skills Week is a fully inclusive freestyle snowboard camp run with Rude Chalets. Suitable for intermediate & advanced riders, with daily coaching covering all aspects of freestyle riding.

TSA Shred Week, 10th – 17th April 2016: TSA will be visiting us for a week of spring shredding! There will be 2017 demo kit to test out, TSA riders to shred with, parties & plenty of fun! MINT are providing bargain coaching & guiding options for all level riders whist accommodation is with Treeline Chalets.
