Girls Snowboard Camp with Tammy Esten
Girls Snowboard Camp with Tammy Esten
18th – 25th March 2018
MINT Snowboarding founder Tammy Esten is stoked to be hosting her very own Girls Snowboard Camp in Morzine again in winter 2018! Expect great vibes, lots of laughs and a rad time snowboarding around the Portes du Soleil.
Tammy Esten has been snowboarding (the world over) for more than 20 years and been teaching professionally for 15 years. In 2005, she became the first female snowboard instructor ever to be awarded the highly regarded ‘Carte Professionel’ allowing her to teach snowboarding at the highest level in the French Alps.
In 2006, Tammy founded the highly successful MINT Snowboarding in Morzine, and still to this day remains the only British female Snowboard School director. With her roots firmly in the UK snowsports industry, she has been a ROXY ambassador & has a wealth of experience in coaching female snowboarders of all ages & abilities. She has a whole world of knowledge from both her personal riding & teaching experience. And it’s because of this, mixed in with her being a super friendly & fun lady, that we think she’s the best female snowboard instructor out there! And now she wants to share all of this with you!
Tammy has tailored the course content of The Girls Snowboard Camp specifically for females at Improver, Intermediate or Advanced levels, who want to develop their technical snowboarding skills all over the mountain. The main focus of the coaching throughout the week will be on technical progression with opportunities to develop your off-piste riding & freestyle skills.
Tammy will work with you to build your confidence in all areas of your riding. By the end of the week you will be achieving snowboarding goals you never thought you could.
Of course the aim of the week is to progress your riding to the next level, but you will do this whilst having fun, a whole heap of laughs and a bit of luxury in the very well-equipped and superb Slate Valley Lodge hosted by Action Mountain.
The chalet provides everything you could ever want from a winter holiday. Slate Valley Lodge is a large, warm and welcoming catered chalet with comfortable ensuite bedrooms and a fantastic lounge dining area with amazing views and an open log-fire. After riding you can relax in the outdoor hot tub or just enjoy tea and cake in front of the TV and log fire; whilst your chalet host cooks you dinner. Slate Valley Lodge is located close to the Prodains telecabine so super easy to get up the mountain in the morning as well as having a great apres-ski bar, the Kinkerne.
Tammy has created a fun and engaging complementary evening program which aims to compliment the on snow day activities and coaching. This includes video feedback sessions to further improve your performance on snow and post riding pilates, stretch and unwind sessions with the superb Georgie Kennington (a local pilates guru). Tammy will also hold an informal evening seminar to discuss the psychological aspects of learning a sport and overcoming obstacles to progression. And finally, for those that wish you will finish the week with an adrenaline boosting evening of night sledging on the Pleney.

5 half days of coaching in small groups. The group will be split into 2 with daily course content being varied depending on group riding level.
Day 1: Advancing riding technique. Tammy will build on your existing skills by analysing your riding and then focusing coaching where you need it most. Including equipment advice and optimising your setup.
Day 2: Coaching you in the movement skills which will enable technical progression and increase your board performance. Tammy will also film your riding (with zero pressure!) so she can analyse your riding and coach you based on your specific needs.
Day 3: You will implement the skills and techniques gained over the previous 2 days across a range of terrain and tasks to progress your riding. The aim is to enable you to use your equipment effectively and develop a fluid riding style all over the mountain.
Day 4: Introducing freestyle skills both in and out of the snow park, including switch riding.
Day 5: Off-piste riding. Tammy loves powder!!! She will take you beyond the lifts into ungroomed snow to further advance your riding technique on natural terrain and varying snow conditions.
