Snowboarding is a diverse sport, which varies according to the conditions, the terrain, etc. Everyone has their own snowboarding style and their own way of enjoying the sport. Speed or big powdery turns, read on to discover which discipline fits you best!

Finding the style of snowboarding that suits you is a guaranteed way of having ten times the amount of downhill fun, with a never-ending desire to improve your technique, and some fantastic experiences to discover. To do this, nothing beats a real-life test. So before you embark on this adventure, take the time to discover what they are, where to do them and what they have to offer.


Are you an adrenaline junkie and a lover of pure downhill sensations? Go for carving.
Constantly seeking speed, your goal will be to carve perfect curves, which you will link together without even catching your breath. You will make the most out of perfectly groomed slopes and your ideal equipment is an asymmetric snowboard with plate bindings. You will need to be very stable on your legs in order to control your speed and respect the safety of everyone else on the slopes.

If, for you, mountains are a peaceful place with a friendly atmosphere and shared happiness, then you are made for cruising.
When you are strapped into your snowboard, you like to discover the resort whilst enjoying the scenery and some great riding sensations. You can take the time to carve out some great curves, have fun and focus on a more gentle practice that lasts longer. Ideal for making snowboarding a source of endless enjoyment!

For explorers who are at home in the great outdoors, nature and the rugged mountain landscape, it's time you start to freeride!
It's the ultimate way to express yourself on a snowboard. This practice is sure to bring out the adventurer in you! Get off the beaten track, go and explore the mountain off-piste, feel the full extent of your freedom in an endless landscape and make your mark in pristine snow; freeride gives you a whole new snowboarding experience and allows you to beyond your limits and test your mental and physical resources.

You can easily give freeride a try under the watchful eye of a guide, whatever your level, and they will take you to an area that suits you.
Please note, this practice requires special equipment and perfect knowledge of the mountain! Never go off-piste alone and always find out about the state of the snow cover and the risk of avalanche.

Finally, discover a practice that is inextricably linked to snowboarding: freestyle. In a halfpipe or slopestyle, it's the 100% fun way to snowboard.
It's all about enjoying yourself by jumping, sliding, doing tricks and turns and getting on obstacles, and most of all, doing all of this your way. This is the preferred practice of all those who love the sport for its playful side, to share time with friends, and push themselves to their limits. Easily accessible at any age with a proper introduction, you can do it almost anywhere in France with friends and with a smile!

Once again, for your safety, be sure to assess your level to make sure that you are using suitable obstacles.
If you feel like giving all of these disciplines a go, then go for it and give them all a try! The important thing is to feel good and look out for your safety so that snowboarding can always remain a pleasure.
