Level 3. Lower Intermediate

You are happy linking turns on most runs both consistantly and confidently, although sometimes coming into difficulty on steeps or challenging snow conditions. You wish to ride the whole mountain and find new challenges. We’ll give you the techniques to make your riding more dynamic, start carving your board, learn a few tricks and even take you off piste.

Level 4. High Intermediate

You are an experienced snowboarder, competent riding the whole mountain, in almost all snow conditions and terrain types. Even if you’re content with what you’re riding, a session with an top level instructor can help you enjoy it even more … and chances are you’ll find out there’s still plenty left in the tank. It’s time to increase your performance, dominate the mountain, master new tricks and venture further off piste.

Level 5. Advanced

You are a seasoned snowboarder who has an extensive experience off piste and / or in the snowpark. You can ride any terrain and make it look good. Join a program for riding steep & deep terrain, or finding how 3 feet out of a pipe can be 10 with a bit of coaching.

Structure

Day 1: Freestyle techniques including stance, speed, pop & landing and using these to ollie, air, shifty & grab.
