“A week of exciting Freeriding, fun coaching, an introduction to Splitboarding and a look into the exciting World of Backcountry Snowboarding. Join UIAGM Snowboard Guide Neil McNab, for this early season glide into the heart of Freeride Snowboarding. Expect high performance Coaching, Fun Freeride shredding and  an indepth introduction to Splitboarding on this 6 day Freeride course in the high altitude resort of Tignes. With comfortable and social shared full board accomodation at the Dragon Lodge right at the foot of the slopes, all you need to do is turn up shred and learn.

If like me, you can’t wait for the Winter season to get going and crave those early season turns, then why not join me in Tignes in early January for some fun and friendly Freeride coaching, an introduction to Splitboarding and an insight into the exciting world of Backcountry Snowboarding this January?

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, put a few splitboard adventures into the legs as well.

Combining Neil’s 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 to push your boundaries and begin your education into the amazing world of Backcountry Frerriding.
