In the program

Develop at your own pace and learn with a qualified instructor in a friendly atmosphere!

The snowboard group Rookie level is for the complete beginner snowboarder or for those who have practiced for a few hours. Program for children and adults, registration from 8 years old.
The goal for the week is to independently descend easy slopes.

You will learn :

  • Be autonomous with the snowboard : to strap in and out of the bindings, to get up from a seated position
  • Manoeuvre the board on the flat in a straight line with one-foot strapped in
  • Use chair lifts alone
  • Descend frontside and backside using a "falling leaf"
  • Learn front and backside turns on blue slopes
  • Be safe on the slopes (knowing how to stop)

Let yourself be tempted by a new sliding sensation!

Please note that from the start of April all beginner snowboard groups are afternoons only

To remember

Participation conditions

  • We recommend that you be in good physical condition to make the most of this activity





Our method

  • Snowboarding requires qualified supervision: our lessons are provided by specialists in the discipline
  • Instructors will harmonise groups at the start of the week and possibly change participants groups during the course of the week
  • Keeping a low number of participants allows individual and personalised instructor advice whilst maintaining a group dynamic to make headway in progressing
  • Lessons towards the end of the season are often only practiced in the afternoon to adapt to the snow conditions, we will inform you if necessary of any changes to your reservation

Roxana Popa

My experience with Évolution2 Val d'Isère was beyond expectations. I took the snowboarding beginner's afternoon class for an entire week and was extremely lucky to have Olivia as instructor. She is not only fun but also has a patient and methodical nature which made the whole experience very enjoyable and allowed me to gain confidence, make genuine progress and reach a satisfactory level. I am very pleased and can only highly recommend Évolution2, particularly Olivia. Thanks again!
