Every courses is shaped around each rider. Most of our clients are keen to develop either freestyle or off-piste riding, so we shape each week aroundthose elements depending on the terrain, weather and the time of year of the course. Its more freestyle in the summer and more off-piste in the winter.
Summer - 8 per group. Winter - 7 per group. Most weeks are limited to one group, depending on demand.
In the UK equipment hire is free at each snow centre. For our European courses we provide extensive kit lists that help riders pack all they need for their course. We do not provide equipment for our European courses.
We were the first to offer regular independent freestyle courses in the UK and it's been great to take our UK clients away to European resorts, broaden their horizons and share our love of the mountains with them.
There's nothing quite like running your own company doing something you love. The freedom to be creative and truly influence how you live your life is very liberating, but it does come at a price. You end up working very hard every day to maintain and improve your business.
