Date: 7th – 11th December 2019

Location: Tignes, France

This workshop is a fantastic early season opportunity to work on your technical snowboard skills, develop your snowboard fitness and enjoy a fun four days of shredding. This high-altitude course is run in Tignes, France so there is guaranteed snow and no shortage of awesome runs. Expert coaching will be led by Neil McNair who will look to bring your riding up to speed in preparation for the winter. Neil will identify any areas that need to be developed, break them down into bite-sized chunks, and give you a tailor-made plan to strengthen your riding. You will feel more in control, less tired, more confident and have style for miles.

Any elements that Neil identifies that are related to strength, agility, flexibility or conditioning will then be addressed off snow with Andrew Blake aka Blakey. I am really excited that Blakey has joined the team of experts for this course.  Blakey is a personal trainer, yoga teacher and physical therapist.  He has extensive experience working with a variety of people from professional surfers and Olympic athletes to complete beginners.  During the workshop the morning yoga will aim to prepare the body for the movement patterns required for snowboarding. After a day’s riding there will be strength and conditioning sessions which will give an insight into the snowboard specific training which I myself work through with Andrew including proprioception, plyometrics, upper body and core.  To conclude the workshop each client will receive a personal consultation which will incorporate advice on future training programs and client-specific goals with a time frame for achieving them.
