Buying a Snowboard
Snowboarders should look for an all-mountain snowboard suitable to all conditions. A freestyle board is too soft and not suitable for a snowboard instructor course. The Krypto Magtek, Templar Magtek and Circuit Magtek are all-mountain boards available on the Rossignol website.
The best skis for level 1 and 2 ski instructor courses can be seen in the all-mountain range. Having the right skis is important and park skis (including twin tips) are not really suitable and can make instructor training more difficult.
When choosing skis, the number in the name represents the width of the ski in mm under foot, and a wider ski performs better in the powder. The Experience 77, 84 and 88’s are a slightly stiffer ski and The Temptation 80 and 84 are slight more flexible.
For those taking part on the level 3 course, the HERO FIS SL (R21WC) SPX 15 is a good ski to consider and can be found in the race section.
Whilst it can be tempting to purchase boots in the UK at a discount, we advise buying boots in resort. You will require a tight fighting boot that can be adjusted, and in the past we have had customers buy boots in the UK which are too big or too small and unable to be adjusted in resort – it often results in an additional purchase.
Whilst we do our best to provide advice for purchasing ski and snowboard equipment, we recommend doing your own research and getting the right gear for you.
