Snowboard lessons for intermediate & advanced riders

Boarders with experience will particularly appreciate the opportunity to ride with ZigZag’s own pro rider Aymeric Tonin.   Aymeric is a professional snowboarder who coaches for the French Federation when he’d not working for ZigZag Ski School (go on, Google him!).  An X-Games snowboard commentator, he is also a featured rideo in recent films by Nitro, Avita and Homies and his photos have made the cover of a broad range of riders’ magazines over recent years.  Aymeric’s titles include :

  • 2nd WSF Banked Slalom / Avoriaz / 2015
  • 3rd WSF Banked Slalom / Morillon / 2015
  • Awarded the title of “Best French Rider 2010” / Grenoble
  • 3rd Continental Cup Half Pipe / South Korea
  • 3rd European Cup Halfpipe / Davos
  • French Champion Big Air / Chamonix
  • 3rd French Championship Boardercross / Serre Chevalier
  • 1st French Cup Big Air / Valloire

Group snowboard lessons

Beginner snowboarders will progress really quickly, as our goal is to get you snowboarding independently as soon as possible, so you can get out and explore the mountains on your own.

We’ll help intermediate level snowboarders refine their technique, correcting flaws and honing existing skills.  Our talented instructors will analyse and improve your style both on and off piste, so you can board more efficiently and with better style over all types of terrain.

We run group lessons over 3 sessions as follows :

  • morning session (09h15-11h45)
  • midday session (12h00-14h30)
  • afternoon session (14h00-16h30) Dec/Jan, or (14h45-17h15) Feb/Mar/Apr

The group lesson hours we can offer will depend on your level of ability.  Check which level you’re currently at and then get in touch with our office for information about which groups are running when over the dates of your stay.

Advanced boarders will revel in coaching from our pro rider Aymeric Tonin, working on fine technical skills, freestyle or big mountain riding.  It’s not often you get a chance to board with a professional snowboarder, so reserve some time with Aymeric before he’s all booked-out!

Private snowboard lessons

Private lessons are scheduled at hours of your preference, please enquire to check availability.

If you’re already an experienced boarder then why not take the opportunity to book a private lesson with pro rider Aymeric Tonin?   A trainer for the French Federation, Aymeric has the eye to help find your weaknesses and to sharpen up your snowboard style quickly and efficiently.

“What a boarder!  My friends and I adored every minute we spent in Seb’s company.  We improved so much both technically and in terms of confidence and had a great laugh at the same time.  I can’t believe the places we went.  If I could board with ZigZag every day I would!!”
