Never snowboarded before? You've come to the right place! Our new Snowflex Slopes have revolutionised learning at Kilternan. This soft carpet like surface is good for skiers but even better for snowboarders.
This course covers the basics of snowboarding starting from side slipping and falling leaf exercises through straight running and using the drag lift. The course progresses to the components of a basic turn. By the end of these four classes most people will be able to ride the lift, stop and maneuver the board down easier slopes. Classes in this series are numbered 1 to 4 and must be taken in sequence.
Advanced Beginner Series
The second course of classes starts with a recap of the ground covered in the earlier classes in order to ensure that a good grasp of the basics has been achieved. The course continues over the weeks with lots of running and exercises to target particular areas of boarding technique, while all the time building the pupil’s confidence and ability. The goal of the series is to achieve good basic slide turns.
