So you thought you knew what this meant right?
Reappropriation of the rules is what I’m talking about. Remap your future, the green way.
Get fit, turn your back on the ski lifts and the pistes (for now) and come and feel the mountains- just the ticket!
What is this?
It’s Splitboarding. From €55 per person for a half day*
For now it looks as though the lifts will be closed until mid-January, well that forces your hand a bit doesn’t it?
Apart from venturing into Switzerland, this is the only option to get some early season powder so there’s never been a finer time to try it for the first time if you haven’t tried it yet or work on those rusty kick turns and develop some legs of steel in the process. It will be a great chance for a safe, social gathering where the objective is to literally to socially distance yourself from others in the safety of a somewhat sparse group.
How it will work
I’ll set the level for any given day on Facebook + What’s App. e.g. Intro session running on the 20th December or Technique Day on the 21st, who’s in?
We’ll assemble our group and I’ll collect details about board requirements.
Whatever the theme or the level, we’ll do a tour of at least 1hr 30.
Venue depends on many things including snow, fitness, standard safety, convenience, etc.
Transport can be arranged between the group, favouring public transport or car sharing at worst.
I’ll lead the tour and help out wherever necessary. Emphasis on learning the necessary skills and hacks as well as safety and guiding the way.
