Intro to Splitboarding Retreat
Coaches/Guides Iris Lazzareschi, Allison Lightcap

January 28-31

The experiences that come from combining a passion for snowboarding with a human powered element quenches the adventure part of the sport that now keeps me satisfied.  The idea for this camp started after I had multiple friends ask me to take them out and teach them the ropes of getting out in the backcountry on their splitboards. I love teaching, coaching, and sharing pow days with friends so I thought having a retreat style event would be the perfect way to help women make their transition from the resort into new terrain.

We will be staying in a cabin in Teton Valley right at the base of Teton Pass. The opening night will be hosted at Habitat Boardshop where we will make sure everyone is set up with their demos and everything they need in their pack for the next day, anything you don’t have you can get at Habitat because all campers get 20% off everything in the store!

The cabin is 5 bedrooms with a hottub and garage. We will have homemade dinner when we get back from shredding and be able to relax and hang out. We’ll have a yoga session at night to help us prepare for the next day, they’ll be taught by Allison Lightcap. Allison is a certified yoga instructor, massage therapist, nutrition consultant, founder of Tahoe Healing and an avid splitboarder who will also be helping coach the course.

The first day will be at Teton Pass where we will get you familiar with all the basics you’ll need for splitboarding adventures. The next two days will be in Grand Teton National Park. We will continue to help you perfect your new skills and enjoy the amazing views and riding.
