It’s been a longtime dream of Tammy Esten, Founder and Director, of MINT Snowboard School, to get local kids snowboarding. And this spring, during the local school holidays, MINT Snowboard School are taking a giant leap towards realising that dream.
On April 13th 2015 MINT is going to be running a week long snowboard camp dedicated to local kids!
For children aged 3 years and up, the snowboard camp is open to all ages and levels from first slide, first turns, to confident cruisers or those wanting to progress their freestyle.
“The goal has always been to bring the mini-shred movement to local kids” said Tammy from MINT HQ this week “and last winter mini-shred really took off after our MINT Mini-shred video went viral on YouTube”
“But the dream wasn’t just to get little ones onto snowboards. Its was about making snowboarding accessible to all local kids, of all ages. MINT Snowboard School wants to give local kids the option to snowboarding, instead of skiing, by setting up a local kids snowboard club to develop a pool of minty local talent! The Spring Local Kids Snowboard Camp is the start of that local kids Movement!”
Monday & Tuesday – two hours a day
Wednesday – mini-break
Thursday – two hours
Friday – two hour lesson, then an open session where parents can join the kids to see what we’ve been up to all week.
