SNOWBOARD GROUP LESSON
A group course on three levels BASIC I, II and III to acquire the basics of snowboarding with a progression from beginner to advanced.
Specifications based on the Ridersystem offered by the Swiss Snowboard School.
Group snowboard lessons are aimed at children from 8 to 13-14 years of age.
For pupils aged 8 to 12, the KidSystem offers a five-level approach specially designed to match their physical strength and cognitive ability to learn moves.
Students receive a logbook validating the level acquired after 4 to 5 days of classes.
For teenagers or adult beginners, we offer private sessions and, for ethical reasons, we do not accept children under 8.

SNOWBOARD GROUP LESSONS
Our teaching is based on the objectives of the RiderSystem on the Grimentz side and the Swiss Snow League on the Zinal side. Learn to slide, gain confidence on the slopes, experience the sport outdoors, express yourself, progress and refine your technique in a friendly atmosphere.
BASIC I / BLUE LEAGUE - beginner level
As a beginner (8-9 year-olds), Basic I or Blue League will enable you to acquire the basics for your first snowboard rotations.
BASIC II / RED LEAGUE - intermediate level
At intermediate level (10-11 year-olds), Basic II or Red League consolidates skills with different variations of turns and movements.
BASIC III / BLACK LEAGUE - advanced level
Movements that reach maturity in Basic III or Black League for an advanced level (children aged 12-13).
