Camp – Performance Technique

Camp – Performance Technique - Description

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 / Improvers 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!

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.
