Suggested Fitness Level

Fitness Level 2/5: An average level of fitness required to enjoy this course to it's fullest

Suitable for Snowboarders with a Skill Level 3 to 4

Below is a description of the skill levels suited:

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.


5 half days of coaching in small groups. The group will be split into 2 with daily course content being varied depending on group riding level.

Day 1: Advancing riding technique. Tammy will build on your existing skills by analysing your riding and then focusing coaching where you need it most. Including equipment advice and optimising your setup.

Day 2: Coaching you in the movement skills which will enable technical progression and increase your board performance. Tammy will also film your riding (with zero pressure!) so she can analyse your riding and coach you based on your specific needs.

Day 3: You will implement the skills and techniques gained over the previous 2 days across a range of terrain and tasks to progress your riding. The aim is to enable you to use your equipment effectively and develop a fluid riding style all over the mountain.

Day 4: Introducing freestyle skills both in and out of the snow park, including switch riding.

Day 5: Off-piste riding. Tammy loves powder!!! She will take you beyond the lifts into ungroomed snow to further advance your riding technique on natural terrain and varying snow conditions. Backcountry adventure down Vallée de la Manche for advanced group. Similar adventure, if less challenging, for lower group.
