The aim is to link your the mind, body and board so they  working together. This  link will take you from being a recreational rider to a more accomplished and confident rider. Giving you the skills to charge everything on the mountain.

We will break down and look at everything from stance width and angel to equipment choice and injected the correct inputs on every aspect of your riding where it is needed.

Small group sizes will ensure that private session feel. Personal rider development is our priority. Whether this is an early season weekend refresher or a mid-winter fixer, this will inject new style and rhythm into your riding.

Sessions will vary depending on the conditions of the day. We will always match the style of riding to what the mountain offers. If it’s a blower powder day then freeriding it is and if its sunny and groomed in the snowpark then park laps are on.
