The Animal Snowcamp 2010 just got better with the addition of a 10-day trip to Japan in February as well as three week-long trips to Austria throughout March. Offering four awesome trips in February and March riding with the
Animal pro-snowboard team, the Animal Snowcamp is a great way to boost your all-round riding ability.
Animal Snowcamp Japan is an amazing opportunity to ride the powder paradise of Niseko on Japan’s Northern Island, Hokkaido, in the company of Animal pro Johno Verity. Soft powder landings mean bigger jumps than you’ve tried before and grin-inducing fresh lines! The 10-day trip includes tips and training, video analysis, CAA Avalanche training certification, visit to an Onsen (hot spa), trip to the Toyota Big Air comp and two nights in Tokyo!
Animal Snowcamp Austria is based in Nassfeld and sticks to the highly successful mix of tips from the Animal pros including Johno V, Sonia Shaw and Olympic half pipe contenders Dom Harington and Kate Foster. Snowboard instructor extraordinaire, Steve Addicott is also on hand to fine tune your technique on the snow. Expert local guiding from the BoardnLodge.com team introduces you to this somewhat undiscovered area to focus on freestyle skills, park and jib training – and plenty of après-ski shenanigans.
