Snowboarding remains, despite its demanding technique at the beginning, a very playful sport where pleasure is constant.

What a pleasure to carve on a perfect slope ! And what about snowboarding feelings in a completely new snow ! Or even to finally do the first 360° on a bump in the Snowpark ! But like all sports, snowboarding requires a technical learning ; good news: with a bit of rigor it is possible to become a quickly an advanced snowboarder.

Once learning backside turns and front side turns (which are often less natural), the progress is impressively fast. This is why our group snowboard lessons are so popular.
