You love riding but you'd like to experience something new? Why not try splitboarding!? Lionel offers to introduce you to this activity which combines ski touring and snowboarding!
There's no need to introduce the Chamonix ski resort anymore, this spot is simply ideal for all possible and impossible extreme sports! Lionel proposes to introduce you to splitboarding on slopes between 25° and 40°, through forest, pow and large spaces! You'll have a chance to discover the incredible landscapes of the Aiguilles Rouges massif, in the heart of Mont Blanc.
Since splitboarding is similar to snowboarding, you must have at least an intermediate level snowboard to practice this activity. This initiation is an opportunity to learn how to fend for yourself, to set up the climbing skins, to assemble and disassemble the splitboard and to go from ski touring to snowboarding easily. The itinerary is not marked, as long as there is snow, that's all that matters!
Meet at 8:45 am at the agreed meeting point and get ready to go by 9 am. Lionel briefs you about avalanche hazards and safety rules before you start the activity. Once ready you start climbing! You get to the top and have a picnic there before riding down and just enjoy the adrenaline rush! If you feel like it, you can always end the day with a beer to debrief...
Participants must already be trained snowboarders (intermediate level minimum) to practice this activity.
