Rider Licence Programme – Snowboard Test

Neige Aventure Ski School has designed a special Rider Licence Programme (RLP) which has its own classification system for all snowboard abilities, for all ages. 

The classification system is clear and transparent and can easily be compared with various ski/snowbaord school systems, meaning you can continue the RLP even if you have had lessons elsewhere!
