Girls' Backcountry Snowboard Camps

28th February 2017 - €1165 (6 places left)

We are once again running our Girls Only Backcountry Snowboard camp for some testosterone-free powder action.

The week will be run in association with our awesome friend Corinne Mayhew. Coz has been a Tarentaise Valley local for many years and has recently become the first female snowboarder to complete the BASI ISTD Snowboard Instructor program, including smashing it in international Boardercross racing.

To join us on the camp, you should be a competent snowboarder, ideally with some experience of riding softer, deeper snow off the sides of the pistes. If you're not sure about your level, just ask! We will aim to spend as much time as possible riding the best lines and the best snow around Sainte Foy and the other resorts in the valley (Tignes, Les Arcs, La Rosiere) but there will also be plenty of time for coaching along the way as well as the chance to try splitboarding for a longer tour if you're keen.

Cost for the week will be €1165, based on 2 sharing a twin room which includes:

  • 5 days of backcountry riding with Corinne
  • Rental of avalanche safety equipment if required
  • Avalanche safety training session (on evening of warm-up day)
  • Transport around the valley throughout the week
