We will be on the outskirts of Grenoble, the different Massifs are easily accessible. We just have to chose the best snow conditions.
Like ski touring, snowboard touring, by using snowshoes to progress on the way up, allows you to discover totally virgin routes.
To take part you need to have a level of snowboard passing everywhere and be used to practicing a sport once a week . Getting ready 1 or 2 months before the training course will allow you to appreciate it better.
Your guide will be a snowboard instructor, who will allow you to take advantage of his experience to polish up your technique with snowboard. He will adapt the rides according to the group and to the weather conditions. The geographical situation of Grenoble allows us to choose the rides according to the snow conditions and the weather forecast.
Our week will not thus be organized according to a motionless schedule, but according to the group and to the weather report. We can adapt the route to satisfy everyone.
