Chamonix valley and the surrounding mountains offer magnificent terrain for snowboarding. Chamex have created several snowboard specific courses to help you push your riding skills to the next level.

Snowboard freeride courses with Chamonix Experience snowboard instructors and guides

The aim of our courses is to work with you on your style and technique, as well as to take you riding on some of the famous Chamonix descents such as the classic Vallée Blanche, Pas de Chèvre or Rectiligne couloir.

As well as exploring some of the best powder and awesome descents in the Alps, you’ll also gain confidence and become a better snowboarder both on and off-piste. We’ll equip you with the skills you need to make the most of our amazing terrain.

If the Chamonix valley is too small for you or if the weather is bad, we can take you to fabulous freeride terrain in Courmayeur, Italy. Just a short drive through the Mont Blanc tunnel and you’ll find yourself in another beautiful country with magical forests, steep descents and possibly the best coffee in Europe…

Wax your snowboard and sharpen your edges - the powder is waiting!
