For those of you heading to the Freeze Festival in London this weekend, head along to the UK screening of European Girls Snowboard film ‘5 More Minutes Please?‘ Come & join us and show support for UK riders, and friends of Mint, Jenny Jones & Aimee Fuller. Showings will be held at 3pm on Friday & Saturday.
We’ve just about survived a fun, but knackering, week at the London Ski & Snowboard Show in Earls Court. It was great to see everyone; from industry people, to Mint clients, past snowboard camp crews and loads of friends. As always, the parties were pumping, the mornings a struggle and the coffees numerous! And a thank you to The Snowboard Asylum for hosting us on their stand.
Here are a few photos of the fun we had:
Next stop, the Freeze Festival! See you there…
As mentioned in our previous blog post, Mint Snowboarding instructor Tammy was at the Castleford Sno!zone last Saturday for the TSA Big Bang event to join in the coaching team. Here are a bunch of photos from the girls freestyle session she coached with Roxy rider Aimee Fuller.
Well done to all the girls who were there… great progression from all and some rad talent was shining through!
So we are in England and the last two weekends have been filled with snowdome shredding at Milton Keynes Sno!zone & Castleford Xscape. Slightly different to our usual slopes in the French alps, the snowdomes have been great fun. Mint Snowboard School instructor Tammy attended The Snowboard Asylum Big Bang events, joining the coaching teams offering free coaching to everyone visiting. Other coaches at the events included Jenny Jones, Dan Wakeham, Will Hughes, Hamish McKnight, Jonny Russell & Ian Ashmore.
At the Milton Keynes Big Bang Tammy & triple X-Games gold medalist Jenny Jones provided a girls freestyle coaching session. At Castleford she joined forces for another fun session with Roxy ripper Aimee Fuller. At both events the girls were awesome, with some real talents emerging, and great progression was seen by all.
Thanks TSA for hosting these great events. And thanks to all the brands for the fun, cups of tea, chat, listening, equipment lending and happy days.
Anyway, knackered and what a day to end it all…..
A lot of todays happenings are top secret with a special project hosted by Mint Snowboard school, involving JAKE OLSON ELMS and THE HELGASONS. Honestly it’s not to be missed.
