5 Day Backcountry Splitboard Snowboard Camp In Portes Du Soleil With MINT!
The aim of this course is to introduce you to split boarding to get you access to vast areas of the mountain that hiking alone cannot achieve. Over five days we will teach you splitboard touring techniques & skills, how to best access terrain via safe lines of ascent/descent as well as mountain safety awareness.
At Mint Snowboarding we have over ten year’s experience teaching all aspects of snowboarding in Avoriaz and Portes du Soleil. Over recent years splitboarding has become much more popular for people who enjoy physical challenges and like to get far from the crowds on even the busiest weeks of the season!
Splitboarding adds a new challenge and a new element of freedom to every snowboarder, allowing them to always score fresh powder and always earning those turns! Our courses encourage you to develop your mountain awareness and improve your knowledge of snow pack and conditions, making you a more knowledgeable, better accomplished and safer snowboarder.
This course is suitable for generally advanced snowboarders, who nevertheless have limited experience of, or are new to, splitboarding. We also offer split board guiding outside of this course for experienced split boarders wanting to reach new lines and hunt out the best snow in Morzine and the Portes du Soleil.
