Following the massive success of last year’s snowboard camps in Chamonix, Animal and BoardnLodge have teamed up again for 2007 to bring you the ultimate snowboarding experience; riding with the Animal Pro snowboard team: Johno Verity, Dom Harington, Ewan Wallace, Kate Foster and Sonia Shaw. New for this year will be the hosting of one of the camp weeks at the BoardnLodge operation in Saalbach, Austria the “Unofficial home of European snowboarding” which boasts two parks, 200kms of runs and untouched back country.
The week-long camps take place from 13th – 20th January in Saalbach, then 18th-25th March in Chamonix. The camps provide everything you get with a regular BoardnLodge holiday plus it offers a unique chance to meet and hang out with the Animal pro team. Whether you’re interested in kickers, jumping off cliffs or just jibbing around the mountain – The guys and girls will be on hand alongside the well-established BoardnLodge crew to improve your technical skills, mountain craft and all round riding. On snow, guided groups will be divided up according to ability – making sure everyone gets the best out of the camp.
Additional stuff going on throughout the week include a big-air afternoon, board tech session, video analysis and if last year is anything to go by, plenty of après-ski shenanigans and nights out off the slopes.
There are limited places on each week which means you’ll need to book early. The package includes airport transfers, lift pass, guiding, all in-resort transport, meals and fantastic accommodation at one of BoardnLodge’s chalets in Saalbach or Chamonix.
