SNOWBOARD LESSONS

The RiderSystem will teach you to snowboard from A to Z: whether you're a beginner or an advanced rider, whether you want to go off-piste, in the park, or with speed on the piste, we've got the right course for every need.

From beginner to expert, the Ridersystem offers a range of courses adapted to every level, so you can progress and discover the unique sensations of snowboarding. Both feet on the board, total freedom and the pleasure of surpassing yourself.

With the right equipment, an allround or freestyle board, comfortable boots and bindings, the infinite possibilities are open to you.

To find out more and determine your current level, you can watch these three videos showing the progression of a basic turn from beginner to advanced.

TIPS FROM MISS DENTS BLANCHES


HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT BOARD, BOOTS AND BINDINGS?

the right length and width

There's a standard way to measure your board size.

The height of the board is ideally between the chin and the forehead, and it's usually about 20 cm shorter than your waist.

Just put it in front of you and see if your chin fits over it without difficulty.

What type of board

an Allround board; Versatile or All-mountain for a gentle start.

Good to know
Softboots and bindings should preferably be of the same brand.

Place the bindings on the board and make sure neither your boots nor the binding overhang.

KIDS SYSTEM

In these courses, kids aged 8 to 12 learn the content of BASIC 1 to 3 at their own pace.

Children require teaching and equipment adapted to their abilities. The program is specially designed for their strength and ability to learn movements.

They develop their first sensations of glide and speed on the board.
