ALL MOUNTAIN RIDERS – VAL D’ISERE
Getting good at every part of snowboarding makes every day on the mountain more fun and enjoyable. When there’s fresh snow we all love powder, when there’s no powder there’s the park, and when neither is an option everyone still wants to look cool and stylish on the piste.
The aims of All Mountain Rider course are to develop strong movement patterns, whilst also learning to adapt these movements to get the most out of your board in all aspects of snowboarding.
The Ultimate coaches will assess the conditions on each day of the course to determine which skills will be the most suitable to develop.
The All Mountain Rider course is offered in two different ability levels; Experience and Performance.
