Activity description

Lionel Binet will be your guide through the backcountry snowboarding slopes of the Chamonix valley, in the heart of the Mont Blanc and Aiguilles Rouges massifs.

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 take you snowboarding on slopes between 25° and 40°, through forest, pow and large spaces!

If you're a beginner, don't freak out! You just need to be an autonomous snowboarder and have an experience with backcountry riding before joining this incredible day! It's an opportunity to learn various riding techniques on fresh snow and Lionel is there to show you his tricks... that you may want to try! The itinerary is not marked, as long as there is snow, that's all that matters!

Enjoy this backcountry ride in beautiful landscapes in the heart of the highest mountains in Europe!

Programme:
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. You will have a 5 to 30 minutes walk to reach the spot, it all depends on the location chosen for the activity.
Lionel takes you in the wild for nearly 6 hours! Just enjoy your day, ride intensely, picnic in untouched areas... And maybe end the day with a beer to debrief...
