Frontside 360 One of the most iconic feel good tricks out there and is a must in any rider’s arsenal. The movements for this trick can be learnt on a slope or small side hits and then taken to the park or backcountry. The trick can be performed off both the toe and heel edge. Here we are going to be focusing on the heel version off a park kicker.

Find a kicker that you feel comfortable hitting. By this I mean you have a good measure of the speed needed to hit the sweet spot of the landing and you’ve gauged the shape of the take off. On the run in try and feel yourself relaxed, centred and focused on the approaching take off. Make sure your weight is even over both the back and front foot. Keep the ankles , knees and hips slightly flexed and upper body aligned.  The run in wants to be timed so you have rolled your board onto the heel edge for take off. The heel edge will be your platform to pop from.

Here we are looking to pop off the heel edge. By popping off the kicker this will add to the balance needed in the air. If you allow yourself to just ride off the kicker the trick will not be solid or balanced. Pop! A combination of movements has to happen at this point , this is where your set will be important. When you are popping into the trick you will want some pre rotation and then you want to throw your head, shoulders, arms and core front side. The trick its self will need more energy than a front side 180 but don’t throw too hard.

Once airborne you will want to stay as compact as possible. Think about bringing your knees to nipples and holding yourself in a relaxed position, knees out over your feet. Always looking to make smooth effortless movements as this will bring your style points up. Grabs can add stability into the trick. Think about a basic grab like the indy or melon to help this process. Keep looking over your leading shoulder, don’t open the head up too much.

Now the all important landing . Here you want to be blocking the trick with your eyeline. It is a trick that you will be looking back up the landing . You can almost look through your legs. Bring the landing gear down beneath you and land on those bolts.

VIVID KIDS Little Riders

VIVID KIDS  Little Riders

Here at Vivid Snowboarding we are offering a new kids programme for the start of winter 2013/14.

Are aim is to encourage more youngsters to get involved in Snowboarding and take up riding at a younger age.

Our approach is to make all sessions fun and enjoyable in a safe learning environment. Kids will learn in different ways to adults and will not be able to balance and co-ordinate movements as well initially. The expectation should not be to be launching perfect BS 540’s within a week it should be to gain board control and begin to build a solid skill foundation while enjoying each session. FUN IS KEY. Early sessions will focus on playful games and getting used to sliding on snow.

The industry has moved forward leaps and bounds in the last few winters to get more kids on snow. Single strap bindings , Velcro boots , better water proof clothing to combat more snow contact are just a handful of new products. All are aimed at making the learning process easier and more fun.

So we want to offer our Vivid Kids product to everyone. If you feel like your 3 year old would enjoy a two hour slide around then bring them along.

Check out our sessions here VIVID

All our Vivid Snowboard team are on hand to introduce your kids to boarding. It might just be a small taster session on the nursery slope or it could be a week long programme . Please get in contact with us here at Vivid Snowboarding to discuss options. We are always here to help with any enquiries and can help you get kitted out in resort.

We look forward to hearing from you soon

WINTER 2013 in Bruson

Winter 2013 in Bruson is going to be awesome thanks to the new accessed lift.

All the Vivid Snowboarding team are looking forward to the new lift link between Verbier and Bruson. It will allow quick access to what has been described in the past as one of the hidden gems of the Alps. No longer will you have to ride the bus across the Valley floor its a question of riding the gondola all the way


Bruson has a rustic charm about its slopes and some amazing off piste riding . It is a great option for flat days as the tress help to give definition in bad light. For an area with just a handful of lifts it has a vast amount of terrain to ride.

When conditions allow you can ride through the forest on tracks right back into Le Chable. From here you can head back up into Verbier or head back up into Bruson for another lap.

Even with the European heat wave in full effect here at Vivid Snowboarding we are getting geared up for our third winter in Verbier. We are excited about seeing you all back in Verbier and working with you again.

The Snowpark has been great in the last few days. The top red kicker seems good and then the three red kickers in a row lower down are also nice. The other features have been well shaped and the park team are getting the black kickers ready for the weekend. They are having to blow more snow to make the landings steep enough. More snow is expected so if your after some snowboard coaching off-piste or in the park come and take a session with vivid snowboarding.

You can check out the conditions in Verbier via the following link SNOW

The Verbier snowpark do not do any earth works during the summer. This means the park needs snow for it to be able to be shaped. A good amount of snow always means a good park in Verbier.

Verbier have been investing in good snow making machines in the last few years. By the end of the Autumn when the temperatures begin to drop they will fire up the snow guns.
