2018 BC FREERIDE COURSE (Chamonix)
COURSE DATE: 05/03/18 – 09/03/18 PRICE: £1295.00 GROUP SIZE: 6
My Backcountry Freeride Course is designed for those that have tasted the future of Backcountry riding and Backcountry Splitboarding and now simply need more!
The Backcountry Freeride Course and is all about simply getting out there and exploring the Backcountry treasures found amongst the highest peaks of the Chamonix massif and beyond.
This course is one of my favourite Courses to Guide as it is quite simply about getting out amongst the High Peaks in search of the best conditions and the biggest descents.
With the emphasis, as always on mountain safety, the Backcountry Freeride Course will help you further increase your awareness for the high mountains and develop your ability and confidence to tour, climb and ride amongst them.
For those that have caught the Backcountry bug and now want to take it to the next level, this is it!
