Introduction to Splitboarding Weekends 23rd – 26th January 2020

Our introduction to splitboarding weekends are ideal for anyone who wants to try splitboarding for the first time or for those with some experience simply wanting to get out for an early season short break.

This trip runs from Friday – Sunday and you will be guided over 3 full days. All splitboard and safety equipment is included along with splitboard technique tuition for those that require it.

If the conditions are good in Chatel then we will stay in the Portes Du Soleil and explore the surrounding Abondance backcountry. If we feel the snow and weather is better somewhere i.e. somewhere around the Mont Blanc Massif range then we will move there instead in order to guarantee you get the best possible conditions for your trip. Backcountry safety and avalanche transceiver training sessions are also included.

The maximum group size is 6 people. A minimum of 2 people are needed to run any weekend.

  • 2 people: 1,375€ per person
  • 3 people: 916€ per person
  • 4 people: 685€ per person
  • 5 people: 550€ per person
  • 6 people: 458€ per person
Arrive on the Thursday and splitboard Friday, Saturday & Sunday. We will head to wherever the guide thinks will have the best conditions on each day.

These trips do not include accommodation or airport transfers allowing you set your own budget. We look after the guiding, transport and equipment. If you would like us to recommend or help with booking transfers & accommodation please just ask.

This is for any snowboarder confident on all level of piste runs who have a little powder experience but would like some more.

Your fitness level means that you are good to hike for up to 2 hours a day on the splitboards with enough energy left to safely manage a descent of 1000m . Previous splitboard experience is not necessary.

  • 3 full days of UIAGM guiding & backcountry tuition with Paul Verdier
  • Use of a Never Summer Splitboard and all other safety equipment
  • Transport to wherever we decide to ride that week
  • Flights
  • Accommodation
  • Insurance
  • Personal snowboard equipment
  • A lift pass where needed
If you are looking to ride some great January powder without flying to Japan then this is one of your best bets. Learn to or just improve your splitboarding technique on a quick 3 day break that doesn’t eat into your holiday allowance.

The maximum group size is 6 people. A minimum of 2 people are needed to run any weekend.

That was an awesome trip! Definitely added a few permanent clips to the memory bank. Untracked powder lines and steep couloirs. A couple of decent skin tracks back up too!
