The folks over at rudechalets have given us the lowdown on what they've got in store for the upcoming season, and there's plenty to get us interested.

As well as a new property in Chamonix, there's also a Burton board test weekend in December, and a revamped rudegirls snowboard week later in the season. We're also told that Chris Kightley, who made the podium in the slopestyle at this year's Brits, has joined the rudechalets team, and will be on hand for their Park, Pipe & Jib tour.

There's a lot going on, so check out www.rudechalets.com for all the info. Don't forget, Whitelines subscribers can take advantage of the 5% discount on all bookings.
