6 Week Off-Piste Snowboard Course

18 February 2017 - 31 March 2017

This is an out and out off piste snowboard course. For 6 weeks, we’ll be hunting out the best powder spots within Whistler Blackcomb resort and beyond into the Coast Mountain backcountry.

Following our training formula, we combine deliberate, highly technical training sessions where you receive lots of feedback, with higher tempo free flowing lessons where you will enjoy the best conditions available.

As well as technical snowboard coaching, we include the Canadian Avalanche Association AST Level 1 and Level 2, giving you a solid introductions to avalanche safety skills. On the AST 2, we use spilt boards for 4 days, showing how to use these to access even more of the mountains. We conclude the course with a once in a lifetime Heli Snowboard Trip which could well be your best day on a board ever.
