What Level Of Snowboarder Do I need To Be?

For the 10 week, the 8 week, and the 5 week L1 only courses we ask that you can ride blue runs on and off trail, linking your turns consistently and riding with confidence while enjoying the challenge of the mountain.
A willingness to give it a go!
Some basic freestyle manoeuvres will be required.

For the 6 week Intensive L1 & L2 course we ask that you can ride all groomed runs with confidence, and that you can take on the challenge of an off trail run, consistently linking your turns in most conditions.
A little background in riding switch and a few freestyle manoeuvres will be required, e.g. riding switch or doing an ollie.

These levels of riding are a starting point and from this point development will be required to achieve the required standard for the SBINZ qualifications (Level 1 and Level 2).

During the 10, 8, 6, 5 weeks there is a lot to learn so that we ask that you have this minimum level before you arrive.

If you feel that you are an athletic person that could improve quickly then there is the possibility for you to be below this level, although we would hesitate to recommend it for everyone.
