Technical Performance Snowboard Camp
16th – 23rd December 2017
7th – 14th January 2018
Get ahead of the game this year with a sneaky early season master class in Europe to kick start and progress your riding this winter. MINT Snowboarding bring you 5 full days of snowboard coaching and 7 days 1/2 board chalet accommodation that will get you ready for the rest of the season.
The Technical Performance snowboard camp has been developed for intermediate & advanced level adult riders who have had little or no formal coaching. A full week snowboarding with a professional will make huge changes to your riding, enhancing your enjoyment of the mountain.
The aim of this course is to develop a solid riding platform over the whole mountain and progress all areas of your technical riding such as carving, steeper terrain, off piste, bumps & freestyle.
We will teach you specific techniques such as torsional flex, pedalling and more, all of which will improve the way you control your board. This will ensure maximum performance from your equipment and result in a more responsive riding style across all terrain.
Change the way you ride and enhance your enjoyment of the mountain.
Are you a lower level rider? We have a beginners snowboard camp too!
Travelling alone? Not a problem! Our snowboard camps in Europe are designed with solo-travellers in mind. They are a great way to progress your snowboarding, learning in a small group with others of the same level… and you will end the week with a bunch of new snowboard friends!
