January Powder Poacher

This January 2019 we are running a powder poaching trip with the aim of finding you the best splitboard accessed snow around. January is traditionally a quieter time of the year and perfect for those seeking cold and deep turns. When we get cold conditions & dry powder then the Alps are one of the best snowboarding destinations in the world.

We are opening this trip up to those with no prior splitboarding experience and will supply all the necessary splitboarding equipment and instruction for those who need it

Also included are sessions on mountain safety including: avalanche awareness, search and rescue techniques and transceiver practice.

If conditions in the Chablais area are good then we will stay in our home resort of Chatel for the duration of the trip and take you on guided day tours of the biggest and best hidden peaks and valleys. We have an abundance of North facing terrain that offers everything from steep chutes to big faces and tree runs. 

However, If we do need to travel then, as the high mountain huts aren’t fully operational at this time of year, we will use alternative valley accommodation in the area’s we visit for the nights we might be away from the resort. The options open to us include Switzerland, Italy and France.

Either way it is a win win scenario as you’ll get to ride some amazing snow.

This trip will be guided for 5 days by Paulo Verdier UIAGM.

The price per person is €1750. Maximum group size of 5 people.
