TOURING AND SPLIT BOARDING – VAL D’ISERE

 

Take only pictures, leave only tracks and keep only memories.

Fed up of crowds and lift queues? Let our experienced coaches take you off into the backcountry past the lifts and limits of normal off piste rider.

There was a time where the backcountry beyond the lifts and short hikes belonged to the ski tourer, however with the development of splitboards in the last few years things have changed.  This part of the mountains has now really opened up for snowboarders, and you’re in for a treat; beyond the limits of the resort is another world, experience both flora and fauna of the alpine environment.

Your coach will keep an eye out for grazing ibex or later in the season burrowing marmottes.  After touring up you will have earned your ride through the awe-inspiring scenery of the high alps.

Split boarding sessions will be individually tailored to your needs, ability and weather conditions. Maximum of 4 people per group.

We can provide the necessary safety equipment (transceiver, probe and shovel), and co-ordinate the rental of splitboard, skins and Z-poles.
