The Yogi - Rachael Roberts

Rachael came on this camp last year as part of the group and we loved her so much we asked her to come back and teach the yoga sessions this year! An experienced yoga teacher and qualified personal trainer, Rachael is a great person to have around to ask those fitness-related questions to. She absolutely loves her snowboarding too so will be joining all the classes and staying with the group as an all-round host too!

Chalet Life, Meribel

All our chalets sit in prime locations just minutes from the pistes and towns of Meribel or Mottaret. They are comfortably furnished with open plan living areas to relax in and open fires if the weather gets colder. All have outdoor terraces to sit in the sun and great views of the mountains around. 

Food and Drink

What you eat is important! You'll be riding hard for 6 days, and it's important that your body stays fuelled. We'll be serving up hot cooked breakfasts each morning, spreading up afternoon tea for your return, and then presenting a 3 course meal of energy filled healthy dinners. Wine will be served with the evening meals. We give the chalet staff one night off (Wednesday) so you can hit the town to sample one of the many great local restaurants. Dietary requirements are not a problem.

FAQs

Got a question about this course? Here's the best place to start. If you don't find your answer here, you can request a callback or get in touch using our contact page.

This camp is aimed at intermediate riders, wanting to push their riding in other areas.

We will be covering many different areas of snowboarding, so there may be elements you're more confident with. We will have Corinne, Katie and Jenny so, if required, we will also be able to divide the group up depending on abilities/ preferences and individual goals.

Yes! Run by girls for girls to practice snowboarding in a comfortable environment with no need to impress. I have grown up snowboarding with only guys, and I just find they have a different mentality to girls and don't get it when I can't do things they can! On this trip, whatever you can or can't do is fine!

Our day by day schedule is only a rough guide and we can juggle around the days according to weather/ conditions. The past few seasons though, April conditions have been great in Meribel with some awesome last minute dumps!

You will be in a twin room but you can upgrade to your own room for an extra cost

There will be evening meals for us in the Chalet, and after that it's up to you. There is a great nightlife in Meribel if that is your scene, or stay in and watch a film instead!  

There will be 8 ladies maximum with the option to split into smaller groups if needs be.

An All-Mountain snowboard would be the best board to bring. Or just a snowboard you feel comfortable riding. We will provide full Split Board Set Ups from Tignes Spirit.

If you have any AVI gear please bring it along as you will be familiar with using your own stuff (transceivers, probes, shovels and bags). But don’t worry, we can provide AVI equipment to those who don't have any.
