Snowboard group lessons in Tignes. Groups of maximum 8 people with specialised instructors. Mornings or afternoons, for children and adults.
Our snowboard group lessons in Tignes are limited to only 8 people, so that the group remains human scaled and the instructor can give everyone the attention they need. Thanks to our passionate snowboard instructors, you will see your snowboarding level progress even faster than you thought! Who better than someone who loves the discipline deeply to help you?
However, it must be said that snowboarding remains a special discipline. It is often less obvious, at the beginning, than skiing, because the two legs are not independent from one another. Nevertheless, we are convinced that you will progress quickly and regularly within our Prosneige school. After learning the basic techniques, the progress is impressive: it is not uncommon for our students, even among the most beginners, to progress at the end of the week on red slopes. In spite of a relatively demanding technique, the sport remains a very pleasant one.
Before being able to make your first carver turns, your first 360° in a Snowpark, you need to learn the basic techniques, as in any other sport. Fortunately, with us, a little rigor and courage, it is absolutely possible to become fast an accomplished snowboarder. Also, if you already have the basics of balance thanks to skiing, your progress will be all the faster.
Once you have mastered backside and especially frontside turns, the hardest part is behind you. This explains the great popularity of our snowboard group lessons in Tignes with you ; in addition to learning quickly how to do your first turns, it is also fun and pleasant thanks to the group atmosphere that is created.
In fact, each participant participates in creating a very pleasant and healthy group atmosphere, which is set up from the beginning of the week. This atmosphere is an important driving force in the learning of snowboarding. Authentic mountain and snowboard enthusiasts will be pleased to share this passion with you in the splendid landscape of Tignes ski resort.
If the origin of the discipline lies in the going down slopes in powder snow, snowboarding quickly evolved towards freestyle, then normalized like skiing. Today, the practice is therefore very diversified, and we put this forward in our group lessons : we are keen to multiply the exercises and styles, from carving to flat sessions and off-piste.
As you can see by reading these lines, snowboarding has a vocabulary all its own. Our instructors will teach it to you throughout the week if you do not already know it. This will allow you to familiarize yourself as quickly as possible with the attractive world of snowboarding.
Our lessons are reduced to a maximum of 8 people. If you choose morning lessons, they will start at 9 am and finish at 12 am, except on Sundays when the group will start at 10 am (to let everyone arrive on time without stress). If you have booked afternoon classes, they will start at 2 pm and finish at 5 pm. It is always recommended to come a little before the course starts.
It is normal that the progress of different students varies within the same group. If this variation becomes too much for you, it is always possible to change groups during the week. Our teams are used to making this kind of change. The group atmosphere and the stimulation between the different group members is one of the biggest advantages of group lessons. It is sure that unforgettable memories will be created throughout the week. The instructor will share secrets about the Tignes resort with each of the students. The small size of the groups allows the instructor to give each student personalized time and advice. This size also allows each student to feel part of the group.
We have chosen to reduce the number of participants in order to consider each student in his or her individuality, to be able to take into account our students’ level, physical condition and goals. Our instructors are assigned to the groups according to the language they speak. Do not hesitate to specify the language you want for your course.
The Prosneige method means being convinced that learning can only be optimal with confidence and pleasure. If the learning is done in these conditions, then the progression will be fast, and you will spend unforgettable moments on your snowboard.

It is also an excellent resort because it is suitable for all levels and all types of practice. Indeed, there are World Cup slopes as well as areas for beginners, off-piste itineraries as well as long marked runs. This way, your instructor will always be able to adapt the outings to your group, and you will be able to do a wide variety of outings throughout the week.

This time is not wasted, as it will allow a much more pleasant progression for the following days and to build a real relationship of trust between the instructor and his group.
The elements seen in priority will allow you to progress in safety, for you as for the others, on the slopes : the priorities on skis, the control of your speed, taking of the ski lifts. Once you have mastered this, you will be able to ski independently on the slopes, even outside of lessons. Furthermore, the instructor will give you exercises and ideas for slopes to do to improve your autonomy after the group lessons.

Group lessons require a particular dynamic which allows each participant to progress with a group of people of a relatively similar level. Therefore, it is important that a group is homogeneous, as much in its level as in its objectives.
