We are The Ride Side.
This is how it all started.
The Ride Side was created with the idea that experiences are made better with the people you share it with.
Since 2015, we have created social & fuss-free ski & snowboarding trips for over 2,000 people. With seasons under our belt in ski resorts in Japan, New Zealand & Switzerland, we are on a mission to grow the love for skiing and snowboarding in Singapore.
Being skiers and snowboarders ourselves, we have travelled the world in search for the best resorts to ride in and the most unique experiences to live through. Our love for the sport has inspired us to chase winters all over the world and we want to share our passion and knowledge with you – and show you a side of the world that we enjoy so much.
Numerous elements & intricacies go into planning an unforgettable ski & snowboard experience. From understanding the seasonal shifts in weather, advanced reservations, local knowledge and best spots on the mountains, you’ll be in good hands with us – on & off the slopes.

What we do & why we do this?
The Ride Side specializes in social travel ski trips to some of the world’s best ski resorts. Our trips are designed for everyone & all ability levels. Whether travelling solo, with a friend or in a group, there is no minimum number! Just book a single slot and join a group of likeminded travelers for a week of skiing & snowboarding. Our concept makes ski travel easy for you – with accommodation, transport, gear, lessons and dining options all planned & booked. All you gotta do is show up!
To top it off, we add a social element into the mix to create an unforgettable experience. You will be travelling with a group of spirited individuals who share a passion for adventure, nature and travel. We aim to give you the opportunity to create lasting memories & friendships that will define what it means to live freely and be in the moment.
We proudly bring to you Singapore’s first snowboard retail and fitting studio, unveiling in August 2019. Say goodbye to overseas shipping fees, long waits & ill-fitting gear! From the world famous Burton snowboards to technical boutique outfits of Gentemstick and Karakoram, we are bringing in an exclusive line up of brands to fit your needs and allow you to excel in your passion.
Our fitting sessions aim to give you a comprehensive understanding of what gear suits you best without breaking the bank. From your first beginner set up to your first powder board, we are sharing our experience and expertise so you’ll be able to do your best on the slopes.
The Ride Side is the authorised dealer in Singapore for
Burton, Vans Snow, Volcom, Gentemstick & Karakoram
Community is a big part of what we do at The Ride Side. We will not be where we are today without the love and support from the very people we’ve created experiences for.
Our community group invites you to get connected, share your trips, experiences and even that new trick you landed. With our new HQ in Singapore, The Drop, we invite you to join us for gatherings, movie screenings, talks, workshops and more.
Let’s build a home for skiers & snowboarders in Singapore.
