Bespoke Weeks & Long Weekends

Custom Splitboarding & Snowboarding Trips

You might already have a bucket list of things that you really want to do on a snowboard trip.

Perhaps its staying overnight in a mountain refuge to wake up and watch the sunrise in the Alps before heading down a perfect powder run. Maybe  learning how to safely move on glaciers using axes, ropes and crampons  floats your boat.  It could be the desire to summit a peak at high altitude and then snowboard back down it. Is getting in a helicopter to be dropped off for some seriously good times snowboarding a dream?

Whatever it might be we can usually help you make it a reality.

Case study: A bespoke week with The Rider Social means you can specify what exactly it is you want and would like to do. Here is an example of a proposal that we have already put together for a group  this coming winter 2017. There are 10 people in total of which 4 would like to splitboard;  3 want technique tuition and 5 would like  backcountry guiding. 3 of the group have even asked about the possibility of a helidrop. We have sourced a chalet based upon their exact requirements and supplied an additional menu of costs for the other elements to the mix.

  • Catered accommodation for up to 10 people
  • A choice of dates in March 2017
  • 5 en-suite bedroom chalet with hot tub and sauna
  • Snowboard instruction
  • Splitboard hire and guiding services
  • Backcountry guiding options
  • Helidrop costs

This is really just an example of how we can make a mixed requirements and ability week away with us work for you. Whatever you fancy then just get in contact for a quote.

On a budget or just happy to self-cater? We appreciate that its not always easy to fit your winter break around our advertised course dates so we also offer  short weeks and long weekends for our clients. Arranging self-catered accommodation for smaller groups of 3 or 4 people is no problem and you would be surprised just how cost effective it can be. Here is a case study (including pricing) from 2016 to give you an idea of how we can help.

Case Study:

A group who have previously attended our Split and Mix weeks wanted to come out as a smaller group of 4 for a more advanced week but couldn’t make the dates advertised. After some discussion regarding their needs and budget it was apparent that we could offer them more guiding for less money if they were happy to take a well appointed apartment with 2 bedrooms on a self-catered basis.

The Rider Social located and secured a modern central village location apartment (with WiFi – a prerequisite!)  and arranged to have their grocery shopping bought and delivered to them upon arrival.

Included in the price was:

  • Self catered accommodation
  • Use of splitboard set ups and regular snowboards
  • Airport transfers
  • 5 days of riding with Paulo Verdier our UIAGM guide
  • Tourist taxes
  • In resort transport
  • Grocery shop delivered to the door

The price per person came in at €1,182.89 which was around UK £920 at the time.
