Reviews

"A great day with Coz, she is so chilled out and clearly has a love for snowboarding and wanting others to enjoy it too. 5 out of 5 and I would 100% recommend booking Coz whatever your snowboarding needs!" Andrew, March 2020

 

"Getting a session in with Corinne is the highlight of a week's snowboarding for me. She's able to push me out of my comfort zone to learn a lot in a way that's really fun." Tom, March 2020

 

"Absolutely brilliant coaching, really breaks it down, really encouraging and positive. It is hands down because of Cozza that my progression from 2019 to 2020 has been immense.
So where is our 2021 trip? Tignes again!" Waverley, March 2020
