For all those with kids of Mini-Shred age and eager to get their feet on a snowboard, the Burton Riglet Park will be at Snowdome Tamworth for The TSA Big Bang. This is the perfect opportunity for your kids to experience snowboarding for the first time and perhaps before you commit to a winter holiday to the real snow!
Sessions are FREE and will be held on both Saturday 15th October and Sunday 16th October 2016 between 9:00 am and 12:15 pm. If you are lucky you might even get Tammy from MINT Snowboarding as your instructor! We will be around for any questions you might have on getting your child snowboarding.
Make sure you pre-book your session via the Snowdome website www.snowdome.co.uk or call them on 08448 000011.
The Burton Riglet Park is especially built for kids aged three to six years old and is designed to give them a taste of snowboarding in a fun and easy environment. On average it takes 15 – 20 minutes for to complete the experience. The Burton Riglet Park is on snow so please dress your children accordingly as it will be cold. Gloves, jackets, hats etc will be needed.
If the experience at the Burton Riglet Park turns out to be a blinding success for your kids, why not take look at the some of the Mini-Shred holidays we offer in the French alps. We are giving away FREE kids snowboard lessons to those booking on our Family Snowboard Mini-Break in December. Or join us for a Mini-Shred week over Easter to enjoy lots of sunshine and longer days.

We are back from two days of snowboarding action at Tamworth snowdome for the Snowboard Asylum Big Bang Snowboard Show. As ever, this annual event was fully packed with coaching sessions, demo kit, pro-rider appearances, the Burton Riglet park and much, much more.
This year Tammy from Mint Snowboarding was honoured to be called in to teach all female groups with Olympians Jenny Jones and Lesley McKenna. Jenny Jones is the well known face of UK snowboarding in recent years having won bronze at Sochi in slopestyle as well as 3 X-Games gold medals. Lesley McKenna is equally legendary, a triple Olympian and the only snowboarder from the UK to have ever won a half pipe World Cup event and to have led the half pipe World Cup standings.
This power crew joined forces at Tamworth to help introduce females into freestyle snowboarding. The sessions were hugely successful, resulting in beaming faces and huge leaps in progression.
