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


Spring Shred

The Spring Shred week is all about maximizing Spring conditions . With early morning Splitboard missions to find powder on the North Facing slopes, followed by all mountain shredding in the afternoon . Chuck in a night at a refuge and it’s the perfect snowboard adventure with the whole of the Espace Killy as our playground.

This course is for the anyone who enjoys all aspects of snowboarding from Splitboard touring, slushy resort runs to looking for the perfect side hit. Spring is a great time in the mountains with plenty of fresh snow to be found on the north facing slopes but warmer afternoons to play around in resort hitting natural jumps, carving and generally experimenting on our snowboards.

This course combines all aspects of snowboarding to improve you as an all round rider, we aim to do 3 days of Splitboarding with shorter hikes and backpack free afternoons in between. If I was going to design a course for myself and my friends this would be it.

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.
