Independent Snowboard School know their stuff! The instructors, Roland and Andre, were first class; fun to be around, helpful, and knowledgeable. Despite our group all being accomplished riders we all came away with a renewed appreciation of our riding and the mountains, thanks to a great day orchestrated by the Independent guys.
