5 star rating44yr Old beginner shreds after two 3-hour lessons As a 44yr old beginner with one previous experience a year earlier where I fell and severely injured my back, I understood that I needed professional help if I am to take up snowboarding. I explained my previous experience and fears to my Instructor Paul. He took this on board and tailored the lessons to my needs, explaining everything clearly, telling me what to expect and how the board should react to my various inputs. Due to this, after two 3-hour lessons, I was able to confidently side-slip, feather and undertake turns on a green slope. 6-days later and I went down a Blue slope. Whenever it doesn't go as I expected, I am able to recall Paul's clear and concise instructions and I reset and go again. Very very highly recommended.

5 star ratingSuperb, Fun, Patient Tuition Our 16 yr old daughter wanted to start snow boarding this year and having had pervious positive experience of using CAB9 for another child, albeit some years ago, I emailed and manage to book 2 lessons. Communication was easy and efficient. Lessons were brilliant and Jono was patient, kind and fun. It may be an expense, but honestly, it is cost effective as the tuition is soooo good. Thank you, we now have another proficient snow boarder in the family.
5 star ratingLessons for all Had a great 3 hr lesson with Jono who very quickly picked up all my bad habits and started correcting them. The rest of my week was faster, smoother, and required less effort. Would recommend whether you're just starting out or a seasoned boarder... there's always room for improvement.
5 star ratingFantastic instructors and service We had a week in Vals Thorens and had Jono as our instructor, we went for private lessons that me and my other half shared (he did three and I had one lesson with Marco). Marco was amazing, very patient, supportive and had great knowledge. My partner was a complete beginner and came along so well thanks to the lessons. Booking was easy and Helen was really helpful in getting us the right deal / options for us! Thank you!
