Black sheep snowboarding

st. Anton am Arlberg

Nothing comes close to a good day of snowboarding! All over the world, the black sheep snowboardschool has collected more than 20 years of experience in snowboard lessons and our specialty off-piste guiding. We are professionals that love snowboarding with the latest snowboard techniques and gear. Our playful lessons are modern, and we adapt our teaching styles to our guests and conditions. The Black sheep bring you to the best locations on epic mountains with the best snow for your skills and soul in our unique way. We focus on quality, that is why we only guide and teach private groups.

Snowboarding is a soul sport that you have to experience and feel to become one with the mountain universe. The Arlberg mountains are our church and are known to be a top freeride and powder location in Austria. This is precisely why we choose the Arlberg as our base. We know the ins and outs, share local knowledge and understand what we do. Our highly educated guides and teachers breathe snowboarding and keep you safe and smiling from ear to ear. Get rid of the masses and do what you always have dreamed of and have a snowboard holiday of a lifetime. After riding with us, you can’t take that grins of your face anymore.

For this year we changed the concept for the “return”! Bring your snow-chains and powder guns. We will drive a maximum of 3 hours from the Arlberg to a disclosed location in the Alps. This gives us a more options and flexibility to ride the best snow that’s available including the Southern Alps.

We will ride and tour 4 days from Thursday to Sunday. We will meet on Wednesday evening for a drink and a briefing on what to expect of these days. This is not for people that like to plan too far ahead. We will make the final call on Friday the 9th of December.

To fully relax and enjoy the ride, we will organise the apartment/hotel incl. breakfast. We will drive a bit to the resort, probably more than one, and start shredding! You can bring your splitboard gear in case it hasn’t snowed for a few days. But if possible, we just ride lift-accessed powder. We will make a carpooling list, so that everyone can take care of their co2 emissions and safe some gas.
