Backcountry snowboarding camps organised by Snowboard Arlberg.


The Lofoten Island is 68 degrees north, inside the Arctic circle in North Norway. The primary income for these islands comes from fishery and summer tourism. The winter months are short and dark. When spring arrives, the days are getting longer, which is ideal for touring. The Lofoten environments are special, with mountains straight out of the ocean and breathtaking views, these are waiting for us to ride them down to the beach.
Join us on splitboard or tour ski at one of the most magnificent places on earth.

This splitboard trip to the Lyngen Alps is an advanced trip for snowboarders with a proper splitboard technique who have a good fitness level to skin up the mountain for about 5 hours every day. If you joined the Lofoten or some technical tours in the Alps the Lyngen alps are waiting for you.
The Lyngen Alps is Located between Ullsfjorden, Balsfjord and Lyngenfjord about 50 km east of Tromsø The Lyngen Alps is famous for its steep, challenging terrain. So be prepared for some long days up the mountain. The season holds up until the end of June and the better period to find good snow and stable weather is around the end of April. The focus of this trip is to splitboard as much as possible if the weather allows us to do.

Backcountry snowboarding camp in Hokkaido, Japan is the land of high-quality sushi, culture, vending machines, and deep powder snow. Through the combination of cold air from Siberia and moisture from the Sea of Japan, Hokkaido is one of the snowiest places on earth. Some areas on the island are claiming an average of 25 meters of snowfall per winter. The most snow falls in the period from half January until mid-February.

After several weeks of exploring and successfully guiding a private group in the last few years, Snowboardarlberg is organizing a freeride trip to Hokkaido. The goal of this trip is to make as many as possible powder turns and explore new places. The Japanese ski resorts are not too big, so we planned to visit daily different ski resorts.

Splitboard hut weekend

The splitboard hut weekend will be spent around the Heidelbergehütte. We will make as many as possible meters to get you ready for the next step, a splitboard hut traverse or a splitboard trip to Norway.
On the first day, we will meet in Ischgl, take the lift up and ride some lines in the resort. After lunch, we go deeper into the valley and splitboard up to the hut where we will arrive late afternoon. After dinner, we will plan the tour for the next day.

Depending on the fitness and snowboard level of the group, we will make will be around 500 to 1000 vertical meters a day. This makes it possible for any snowboarder to join this trip, with some off-piste snowboarding experience or someone who already has several splitboard tours. There will be another group so we are able to make two groups with different levels.

If the weather is not cooperating we can ride in the resort, look into the snow stability, avalanche training, splitboarding Technik’s, etc.

Return of snowboarding

Your chance to get warmed up for a freezing winter! Snowboard Arlberg together with Blacksheep snowboarding is organizing a Snowboard opening at our favourite mountains in Tyrol. The theme of these days is to ride the best possible snow, groomers, and terrain, while we work on your technique and control that you need for a big day out in the mountains you love.
The Arlberg is opening its powder gates on the 3rd of December, Ischgl one week before. And the Glaciers are already running hot into the coldest time of the season. Every day we decide where it’s best to ride in desirable conditions in a safe and fun environment. Each day we will drive a maximum of 1 hour and 10 min. to (glacial) resorts like Kaunertal, and Pitztal are 20 min. Drive to Ischgl, or at a 10 min. drive the Arlberg.
