“I can never wait for the Winter season to get started, so I like to kick start early with my Tignes pre season ‘Freeride sessions’ in mid December. Join UIAGM Snowboard Guide for this early season kick off. Expect high performance Coaching, Fun Freeride shredding,  early winter Splitboarding and ‘Yoga for the outdoor athlete’ from the comfort of a shared luxury appartment complete with Spa and Sauna. There is no finer way to kick start your winter season”.

If like me, you can’t wait for the Snowboard season to begin, why not join me in Tignes, mid December, and Kick start your winter early on my annual Pre Season ‘Freeride Sessions’.

I’ve been running the Pre-season ‘Freeride Sessions’ in Tignes for a couple of decades now, they have become an essential part of my winter warm up and something I really look forward to as the temperatures drop and the snowline rapidly begins to creep down the mountain.

With early season snow pretty much guaranteed in Tignes, we can immediately get to work refining our riding and carving techniques on and off the pistes, bomb our first fresh untracked lines of the winter and if the conditions suit, even put a short pre season splitboard adventure into the legs as well.

Combining high performance ‘Ride philosophy’ Coaching with Fun all Mountain Freeriding to bring you an exciting week of Shred that feeds your stoke and gets you psyched for the winter ahead.

Add the option of evening Yoga session or two to ease the aching muscles and help you prep your routine for the long winter ahead.

We have a booking in a luxury apartment from the 9th to 16th Dec. Contact the office for details
