“My New ‘Ride Philosophy’ Courses introduce the philosophy behind my approach to Freeride Snowboard technique and the ‘Fine Art of Riding Mountains’, exploring the working connection between you, your board and the Mountains natural terrain.

These fun and fast paced ‘Instructional’ Freeride courses  are based in the Spanish resort of Baqueira Beret making full use of the incredible Slackcountry terrain that is found there.

The New ‘Ride Philosophy’ Course introduces the philosophy behind my approach to Freeride Snowboard technique and the ‘Fine Art of Riding Mountains’.

This 5 day instructional Slackcountry course will help you understand the connection between your natural movements, your feel and understanding of the board beneath your feet and the ultimate goal of riding with speed and flow within the inspirational natural terrain of the Mountain.

This course will be based in the Spanish resort of Baqueira Beret in the heart of the High Pyrenees. Baqueira is spread over numerous valleys and offers an extensive playground of lift accessed fun Slackcountry terrain that simply begs to be ridden and explored.

2020 will see the launch our first Prototype Custom Snowboards, designed with the knowledge and science that has come from 30 years at the cutting edge of the sport.

‘McNab Snowboards’ are specifically designed to be ridden with the knowledge of how we, the board and the Mountain can work together to create the ultimate ride.

This New ‘Ride Philosophy’ Course will give you the opportunity to test one of our new Prototype Snowboards complete with the understanding of the science behind its design and the knowledge of how to ride it.

For this course we will be staying in the Hotel Vilagaros in the Village of Garos in the valley below Baqueira.
