Intermediate Technical Performance Workshop

Location: Meribel 3 Valleys, France

Snowboarders at the top of the mountain

This trip is aimed at mid-higher intermediate riders who have done 3-10 weeks on snow.

You can turn on both your toe and heel edge consistently and confidently ride all Greens, Blues, Red and some Black runs. Tough conditions slow you down and affect your technique. You have done some easy, open off-piste. Does this sound like you? If so, come join us for a sick week in the 3 Valleys.

We will ride all-terrain from piste to powder with some very basic freestyle thrown in for good measure! You will learn how your body position relates to the output you get from your board, how the set up of your board can change the way you feel and how different circumstances require a different application of skills.

We will get you shredding the mountain with more style and control.
