Private Snowboard Lessons

2 Hour Private = 140€ 

3 Hour Private = 200€ 

Full Day 5 Hour Private (eg: 9:30-12:00, 13:00-15:30) = 330€ 

These lessons can be for the first timer, or the seasoned rider. The price stays the same whether you are one person or a group of friends or family, just make sure you’re all of roughly the same ability and happy riding together if you’re booking as a group. If you have specific goals for yourself or your group I can cater to those. For example, if you want to start hitting kickers in the park, venture off piste, or learn to carve properly, then I can help. If you simply want a professional eye on your riding, to fix any bad habits or problems you may have, then a private lesson is for you. 

Lessons usually start at the DMC lift, one of the main lift hubs in Alpe d’Huez, with access to everything from beginner slopes to more advanced terrain. However if you are staying in another area of Alpe d’Huez we can see if it makes sense to meet elsewhere.

Multi Day Packages

4 Day First Timer - 14 hours coaching - 700€

6 Day First Timer - 20 Hours Coaching - 850€

Day 1: Get started with a full 5 hours of coaching (9:30 - 12:00, 13:00-15:30). The first day on your snowboard is when people start to pick up the most bad habits which will then hamper your progress further down the line. With my guidance on this first day we will learn how to safely control your speed and line using the edges of your snowboard. 

Days 2 - 4 or 6: After getting the basics down we will move to a 3 hour session each day (9:30 - 12:30 or 13:00 - 16:00). Everybody learns at different speeds and I will tailor the lessons to your ability, always picking slopes appropriate to your level. Once you have begun to link turns together on mellow green slopes (usually day 1 or 2) the progression tends to be quite quick, allowing us to move onto blue and red slopes, explore new areas of the mountain, and start learning more advanced techniques.

If you are continuing onto the 6 day package we will further develop your technique and hone your skills. By this point we can choose to focus on different areas that interest you, whether that be freestyle, off piste, steep terrain, carving, or a bit of everything!

I have developed this First Timer package to really help you get the most from your holiday. It is a great fun week and you will be amazed by the progress you can make in such a short time. This can be booked as an individual, or together as a group - the price stays the same, just make sure you’re all first timers on a board. If you have some experience already take a look at the performance weeks below.

Please contact malcolm@masterclasssnowboarding.com with any questions or booking enquiries.

4 Day Performance Week (3 hours each morning or afternoon) - 600€

6 Day Performance Week (3 hours Each morning or afternoon) - 750€

A Performance Week represents the best value lesson price we offer. The price stays the same regardless of whether you are 1 or 8 people. Kids, adults, or even families, I can create a personalised week of coaching specifically for you or your group. All I ask is that you are roughly the same ability, or simply happy riding together as a group for the week. You get 3 hours of coaching each day, either in the morning or the afternoon, allowing you the rest of the day to ride at your leisure. The week will be tailored to your ability and personal goals, but a typical week will look something like this:

Days 1 - 2: Whether you have just started turning, or have been riding for years, I will analyse and examine your technique on a board. We will look at what’s working well and what’s holding you back. We will also explore some of the key fundamentals of good snowboarding, and make sure you are applying these to your riding.

Days 3 - 4: Over the next few days you will develop a much greater understanding of which techniques to employ in what conditions. My goal is to move people from being a passenger on their snowboard to being somebody who has full command over the line their board takes. I want to translate the joy I get from riding a snowboard to you, for when it is done properly there really is nothing like it!

Days 5 - 6: These final days will create a much broader skill set within your riding, enabling you to perform various techniques across a variety of pistes and different snow conditions. From off piste to carving, freestyle to steep terrain, we can cover it all!
