Technical Performance Snowboard Camp – Morzine, Avoriaz

Technical Performance Snowboard Camp – Morzine, Avoriaz - Description

The ever popular Technical Performance Snowboard Camp, now in its 16th year, is the ultimate winter improvement camp, aiding you to step up your riding to the next level. MINT Snowboarding brings you the perfect snowboard holiday combination of 5 full days of snowboard coaching and 7 days accommodation.

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.

For winter 2023/24 we are excited to continue our partnership with Northstar Chalets for the accommodation on our Morzine snowboard camps. With fantastic catered chalets located in central Morzine, at Northstar you can expect the warmest welcome and the comfiest chalets, along with fabulous food.

Suitable for Snowboarders with a Skill Level 3 to 5

Below is a description of the skill levels suited:


Level 3. Lower Intermediate

You are happy linking turns on most runs, although sometimes coming into difficulty on steeps or challenging snow conditions. You wish to ride the whole mountain and find new challenges. We’ll give you the techniques to make your riding more dynamic, start carving your board, learn a few tricks and even take you off piste.

Level 4. High Intermediate

You are an experienced snowboarder, competent riding the whole mountain, in almost all snow conditions and terrain types. Even if you’re content with what you’re riding, a session with an top level instructor can help you enjoy it even more … and chances are you’ll find out there’s still plenty left in the tank. It’s time to increase your performance, dominate the mountain, master new tricks and venture further off piste.

Level 5. Advanced

You are a seasoned snowboarder who has an extensive experience off piste and / or in the snowpark. You can ride any terrain and make it look good. Join a program for riding steep & deep terrain, or finding how 3 feet out of a pipe can be 10 with a bit of coaching.

Structure

Benefit from 5 full days of coaching in small groups. Coaching runs for 5 days, with a day off mid-week to relax and recuperate or to head back out on snow and enjoy your new skills.

Day 1: Advancing riding technique. We will build on your existing skills by analyzing your riding and focusing our coaching where you need it most. Including equipment advice and optimising your current 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: Implementing the skills and techniques gained over the previous 2 days to progress your riding across a range of terrain and tasks. The aim is to enable you to use your equipment effectively and develop a fluid riding style all over the mountain.

Day 4: Off-piste riding. Taking you beyond the lifts and into ungroomed snow to further advance your riding technique on natural terrain and varying snow conditions.

Day 5: Introducing freestyle skills both in and out of the snow park, including switch riding.
