Split and Mix – Les Arcs

The Rider Social is taking their popular Split and Mix week to the Paradiski area of France in conjunction with the snowboard chalet operator Bura Snow  It is scheduled to run on the week of 2nd -9th April 2017.

If you have ever looked up at an untouched powder face and thought to yourself “I’d love to be able to get up there and snowboard down it” then you should be seriously considering splitboarding.

A Split and Mix week is 2 days riding the best off piste in the area on regular snowboards and 3 days of splitboarding. The splits allow us let us get further out of resort boundaries to find the best untracked snow available. The Rider Social will not only train you on how to use a splitboard properly but also provide optional powder and off-piste technique lessons. Sessions on snow pack stability, how to move safely on the mountain and using avalanche equipment are also ongoing throughout the week.

You don’t need to be Jeremy or even Jenny Jones to get out and experience the feeling of freedom in beautiful surroundings that splitboarding brings. Our goal on a Split and Mix week is to get more people tuned in to the splitboarding and backcountry snowboarding experience.  We achieve this by not only making it fun but by showing that those powder faces really are accessible

The Bura chalet Pierra Menta is ideally situated in Le Villaret which is smack-bang in the middle of the Paradiski area, offering access to the vast resorts of Les Arcs, and La Plagne through the Vanoise Express cable car.  The resort itself sits at 1650m altitude and offers the potential of high mountain splitboarding at up to 3250 metres.

Included in the €1799 per person price:

  • 5 full days of guiding with Rider Social UIAGM and snowboard instructor David Gladwin
  • Full 6 day Paradiski area lift pass
  • Ongoing technique tuition over the 5 days
  • 7 nights catered accommodation at chalet Pierra Menta 2nd – 9th April 2017
  • Return transfers from either Geneva or Chambery airports
  • Use of  Never Summer  splitboard equipment
  • Use of transceiver, shovel and probe
