Stentiford Snowboarding
James Stentiford Freeride & Backcountry Snow and Split Board Coach


Backcountry Freeride

For a seventh year in a row Stentiford Snowboarding and The White Room are partnering up to bring you epic Backcountry snowboarding in St Foy. Now in their ninth year of running dedicated Backcountry snowboarding weeks, The White Room have a program which has something for everyone from a Backcountry Intro to a dedicated girls week.

For anyone who hasn’t ridden in St Foy yet, this is your chance! Still one of the best kept powder secrets in the French Alps and in my option one of the best snowboard mountains in Europe, St Foy has everything from epic trees, pillows to open powder fields  and of course the famous Foglietta. The aim of this week is to ride as much powder as physically possible and to help you improve the way you read and ride natural terrain.

This winter we are partnering up with Hoursemouth snowboarding to bring you a Backcountry Intro week. Paul McKeen will be taking the course with the aim of introducing you to the joys of Freeriding, helping you with technique and decision making when riding off piste.

Please Note: This course is for experienced snowboarders. A good level of fitness and at least 5 weeks of snowboarding experience is recommended. For more information please contact us via email or phone.
