Chamonix snowboarding freeride course - advanced level

If you’re reading this, then you are looking to build on your existing back country snowboarding skills, and take the next step towards becoming a big mountain rider. The Mont Blanc range is the perfect location and once you have had a bite of the Chamonix cherry, you will most definitely be looking for any excuse to get yourself back here for another adventure.

Riding in  Chamonix means being in the very heart of the high mountains, amidst carving glaciers, iconic steeps and couloirs and epic tree runs. This terrain is all easily accessible from the lifts or with a combination of lifts and little walking – Sometimes you’ve got to earn those turns! This type of big mountain riding right on the doorstep, doesn’t exist anywhere else in the world!

In the Mont Blanc range we can find glaciated descents of more than 2500m long from the Aiguille du Midi, 2000m long, high altitude glacier runs in the sun on the Italian side of the range from the new Skyway lift, steep couloirs from the Brevent or Grands Montets lift stations, magic forest riding on the Swiss side of the Tete de Balme in Le Tour, and varied riding in Courmayeur, Italy. These amazing spots are all included in one pass- the «Mont Blanc Unlimited».

Tempted? Though professional leadership and instruction from our dually qualified UIAGM mountain guides and ENSA snowboard instructors, we guarantee both a high rate of progression and epic amounts of stoke!

On this 5 day course, we have two primary goals. We want to teach you the specific riding and mountaineering techniques used to progress in high mountain snow and steep terrain, and also teach you the strategies you will need to use to make informed decisions in the backcountry, to help maximize your safety.
