Weekend Splitboard 2-day Taster. The 2-days will be spent close to the resort of Chatel. if its your first experience, we will teach you about the equipment and how to use it. This may require the purchase of a day pass for the local area. Over the 2 days we guide you in a local zone where the conditions are looking best. You will be responsible for getting yourself to the agreed meeting place on each morning of the trip to meet your guide. Ski buses run frequently every day in the winter season to get you to the meeting point each morning and back to the resort each afternoon.
