Splitboard Chablais 2021 Dates TBC
In March 2020 we will be running a splitboard week that will explore the best zones in the Chablais backcountry. This is the perfect introduction to splitboarding for riders of a good standard looking for remote backyard adventure.
The Chablais Alps mountain range is divided across the Haute-Savoie department in France and the Cantons of Valais and Vaud in Switzerland. It is home to many, many small 2 lift resorts that offer unbelievable splitboard only accessed terrain.
You’ll be based in our home resort of Chatel for 6 nights and we’ll travel to a different zone each day to find the best lines in the best possible conditions. This is a trip that offers every type of riding, steeps, couloirs, wide open powder fields and trees.
No splitboard experience? No problem! We supply everything you need for this trip from premium Never Summer splitboards to all the necessary safety equipment. We will also teach you all the techniques you’ll need to go splitboarding.
This trip runs from Saturday 7th to Friday 13th March. You will be UIAGM guided over 5 days to a different destination each day. The exact locations won’t be decided on until the night before in order to ensure the best possible conditions.
Splitboarding in the Chablais is for high intermediate level riders with previous off-piste experience. You will be comfortable riding on steeper terrain and able to deal with variable snow conditions, from deep powder to ice and bumpy run outs.
You must have a good level of fitness for this trip. Running a slow half marathon each day wouldn’t be a problem for you. Previous splitboard experience is desirable but not strictly necessary.
This week will show you around some of our personal favourite places to ride.
Each day will be different from the last and you’ll literally only just of started to scratch the surface of the area. Splitboarding day trips also mean smaller backpacks and less stuff to carry up with you.
Also by not including accommodation on this week means it’s perfect for anyone on a budget. We can help book you something suitable on request.
We include Never Summer splitboards and all safety equipment as a part of the price as well as a complimentary return airport transfer to Geneva..
If you are a fit and experienced snowboarder who wants to get into splitboarding then this is a perfect introduction to the sport.

It will change your life.
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!
