Team WL is currently in La Clusaz, France, for the annual Avant Premiere snowboard test. It’s the first opportunity for retailers to try out next season’s gear and decide what’ll be lining their shelves come winter.

Naturally, stoke levels are through the roof, and especially so in 2017 now that the snow has finally arrived in France. With plenty of fresh up for grabs, we made a beeline for the pow boards and went looking for lines.

You’ll be able to read more about the gear we got our hands on in our Buyer’s Guide, released ahead of next season – but until then, here’s a selection of what’s on show at Avant 2017...
