Avoriaz – Morzine – Portes du Soleil – France
« Designed for intermediate and advance level riders wanting to push themselves and start enjoying the kind of powder and terrain they have always dreamt about! »
The Stomped Snowboarding Freeride Backcountry courses run Monday to Friday, 3 hours per day. The courses are designed to give you expert tuition for half the day, followed by time for personal practice the other half day (The Half & Half) giving you the chance to practice what we teach.
You’ll get 5 days, 3 hours per day, 15 hours of on-mountain training allowing every other minute on the mountain to be a practise minute that counts! You decide what’s important to you, we’ll provide the training.
Definitely Portes du Soleil is pure heaven for powder lovers offering snowboarders all the thrills of no-holds-barred exploring on safe runs.
Les Crozats, La Frontalière, Le Pschott, Les Brochaux or La Marmotte in Avoriaz, not forgetting the awesome Vallée de la Manche. The steep and deep untouched runs at The Nyon and Chamossière peaks in Morzine. The multiple faces of Pointe de Chesery in Chatel offers numerous opportunities to sample the powder. Choose the virgin powder route at Le Cuboré, Champéry and more, much more than this at the tricky Pointe de l´Au couloirs, the Combe de Bonnavau…
