Improver Snowboard Camp
Improver Snowboard Camp
26th March – 2nd April 2017
For the first time ever, in spring 2017, MINT Snowboarding will be hosting an Improver Snowboard Camp in Morzine dedicated purely to riders who have relatively limited snowboard experience. Enjoy a holiday with a bunch of similar level snowboarders and with our tuition you will gain confidence in your skills to move your snowboarding forwards at just the right pace.
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 in the very comfortable Apartment Sante hosted by Treeline chalets.
Sante is a beautifully renovated catered chalet styled apartment, tucked away in a quiet plateau in the centre of Morzine. It contains 5 ensuite spacious bedrooms and can sleep up to 16 with surrounding balconies & an outdoor hot tub on the ground floor.
Enjoy a fun and engaging complementary evening program. This includes a video feedback session to further improve your performance on snow and post riding pilates, stretch and unwind sessions with the superb Georgie Kennington (a local pilates guru). And finally, for those that wish you will finish the week with an adrenaline boosting evening of night sledging on the Pleney.
What is Improver level? The Improver Snowboard Camp is designed for those of you who have done a week or two of snowboarding before and are linking turns on green, blue or possibly easier red slopes. You wish to gain more confidence on your board and to progress to the next level.

6 half days of coaching in small groups. The daily course content will vary slightly depending on group riding level.
Day 1: Riding technique. 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. We will also film your riding (with zero pressure!) so we 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: Honing your skills further with fun challenges around the mountain as you start to explore more of the Portes du Soleil.
Day 5: Taking you slightly off the beaten track with an intro to off-piste riding. Learn how to further advance your riding technique on natural terrain and varying snow conditions.
Day 6: Introducing basic freestyle skills both in and out of the snow park, including switch riding.
