Splitboard Freeride

Our Splitboard Freeride courses are all about maximizing conditions and involves everything from runs straight from the lift, short hikes to Splitboard touring days. Whatever the conditions throw at us we’ll have the equipment to find the best powder possible!

Introducing basic Splitboard touring skills, along with Backcountry safety skills essential for traveling further from the beaten track, this course is perfect for those looking to get a taste for Splitboarding, or for those already bitten by the bug but looking for plenty of Freeride runs as well.

If you are looking for freedom, adventure and untouched powder far from the crowds, this course is for you. The possibilities are endless. Once you’ve experienced the freedom of Splitboarding the Backcountry adventure truly begins!

This week is designed to fuel your imagination of what is truly possible, whilst helping to develop your mountain safety skills and the ability to read and ride natural terrain.

Please Note: This course is for experienced snowboarders. A strong level of fitness and at least 6 weeks of snowboarding experience is recommended. For more information please contact us via email or phone.
