What you get on the Rebel Alliance Snowboarding Off-Piste Course
The course will take you on some of the classic lines of Tignes including Mickey’s Ears, Tuff’s Couloirs, Chardonnay Bowl, Grappion and Pisteurs Couloir, to name a few. As ever, these are all dependent on rider’s abilities, but Si and Rhys will always find something suitable for the group level. Si and Rhys are extremely experienced off-piste snowboarders, meaning that you can be shown all the secret spots and cheeky lines that you wouldn’t find if you were riding on your own. Apart from showing you the local stash spots, you will be coached in the art of freeride. There is more to it than “just lean back”.
Sessions are 4 hours long, giving us ample time to access one of the classic lines of the area. There will usually be a hike involved, which should never last for more than one hour. You will be given avalanche equipment and full instructions on how to use it. Groups are kept to a maximum of six riders to ensure safe, productive sessions.
Rebel Alliance off-piste courses really are one of our premium products. Si and Rhys absolutely love riding off-piste and we are very proud to be able to share this knowledge of the area with clients and friends alike. These courses attract like minded snowboarders that return year after year to gradually ride more challenging terrain, and to be involved in an incredible atmosphere of learning and discovery.
Occasionally, if conditions are suitable, we ride in Sainte Foy. For those of you that don’t know, Sainte Foy is an amazing resort only 20 mins away from Tignes, and has some incredible tree runs which make it ideal when the wind is blowing too strong up in Tignes.
