Description

When it comes to great snowboarding and splitboarding in the Alps of Italy, you can’t do much better than Courmayeur.

Courmayeur has a huge assortment of wonderful slopes. And I would like to teach you how to properly enjoy those slopes on an instructive and enjoyable 3 day course.

A lot will be covered during this course. During the first day, we will focus on an introduction to your equipment and splitboarding skills training. We will also cover how to properly use avalanche safety equipment, and so much more.

On the second day of this course, you will get to enjoy some exciting off-piste snowboarding on the slopes of Courmayeur. We will also enjoy some short splitboarding tours as well. During these tours, I will offer you advice in order to improve your developing skills.

During the final day of the course, we will visit the village of La Thuile. From there, we will venture to the Punta Croce. Once there, you will get to use the skills you have been learning and put them into practice during a thrilling and scenic splitboarding tour. During this tour you will take a leading role, and will utilise important route finding and decision making.

Many people visit Courmayeur to enjoy some great snowboarding and splitboarding on the area’s slopes. And it is my intention that you will not only get to enjoy those slopes, but learn how to enjoy them safely and properly.

Are you interested in improving your existing skills, while also learning some new ones? Then send me a request and join me on this 3 day splitboarding/snowboarding course. 

I also offer a 5 day ski mountaineering course  in Courmayeur as well.
