As well as knocking out his famous mountain shirts, Neil McNair continues to run snowboarder improvement courses in the Alps throughout the winter - and he's gearing up for the 2015/16 season as we speak.

Whether it's freestyle, backcountry safety, splitboarding, or preparation for an instructors' course, there's something to suit any rider that wants to step their game up.

From November right through to March, there are regular courses running in France (Tignes, Sainte Foy), Austria (Montafon) and Switzerland (Lenzerheide). As well as Neil's years of experience in all aspects of riding, courses occasionally team up with James Stentiford at Stentiford Snowboarding, giving you even more bang for your buck.
