Building on the success of the surf coaching at the Boardriders House in Hossegor, Quiksilver and Roxy launch ‘Boardriders Winter Week ‘. Your chance to shred with team riders in the snow Mecca of Chamonix.
This time it’s for the keen skiers and snowboarders, Quiksilver and Roxy offer a unique experience with ‘The Boardriders Winter Week’. Your opportunity to shred Chamonix with quality coaching from some of the top team riders whilst staying in a luxurious guesthouse ‘The Club House’. One week of shredding in an exclusive environment; guests will hang on and off the slopes with Quiksilver and Roxy team riders such as Markku Koski and James Stentiford, plus have the use of instructors from Evolution2, experts of the mountains. It will be an unforgettable week of coaching, backcountry riding and freeride sessions in one of the best mountainous resorts in the world- in the heart of legendary Chamonix.
6 days to perfect your technique with the Quiksilver and Roxy riders on hand to help. From Brevent to Courmayeur, the students will have access to an amazing playground of 6 areas. As well as confirmed team riders, the Charlet brothers, Chamonix locals and freestyle/freeride legends will be around to shred for the week too. Not only your company on the slope, the riders will be staying at the chalet so your chance to hang with them in the evenings as they share their experience and passion on and off the slopes.
Two one-week courses (February 12th-19th, February 19th-26th) are open to skiers and snowboarders (male or female) over 14 years of age who are at an intermediate level. The program includes freeride, freestyle, backcountry aspects as well as educational training on security, avalanche training, crevasse rescue and glacier evaluation.
