The 2013 Snowboard coach gap course is well underway here in Arinsal, Andorra.
Over the past few weeks the guys have been coached on riding a variety of conditions and terrain. With specific sessions delivered on how best to ride variables, bumps, powder, trees and what to look out for in the terrain and conditions to best navigate whatever the mountain throws at them.
We’re in the forth week now and with the weather being so nice, the focus this week has been on riding steeps (short radius turns – a key part of the Level 2 assessment).
There’s more snow forecasted for this weekend, so tomorrows sessions will focus on piste performance (carving). A video feedback session scheduled for lunch time, looking at all the weeks footage, will give the guys time to go ride / practice before the weekends snow arrives!
