[Highlights from last year’s Park Hill Camp.]
In recent years, snowboard camps in Europe have died off in popularity, with only the USA flying the ‘camp vibe’ flag. You only need to check the edits from Oregon each summer to see that they are doing it well! Park Hill is out to re-dress the balance.
Bringing riders from all over Europe and beyond together on the mighty Hintertux glacier, with national riders, pros and coaches on hand to help develop the camper’s freestyle skills. Last year, there was even the chance to bag a few a few powder turns on some of the mornings.
The core values for Park Hill are to provide a safe and secure environment for snowboarders of any age to enjoy progressing all aspects of their riding by day, while enjoying varied and interesting off snow activities in the evenings. Over the past few years, campers and pros alike have enjoyed good times riding with friends, both new and old, and Park Hill even offers insane deals for outside coaches to bring their own groups along, allowing the same groups to enjoy an affordable change of venue for a week.
There are a variety of packages to suit all budgets, from surpervised dormitory accommodation up to family apartments, all within the Gasthof, making Park Hill one of the most cost effective ways of getting an inter season glacier shred in and experience a real ‘snow camp’. The Gasthof also boasts a restaurant and bar, providing a hub for the off snow activities as well as a skate venue in the case of rain!
With weeks running through most of October, there is likely to be a week that coincides with most school’s ‘half term’ holidays. For further information, please check the website and contact the organisers through there!
Let’s bring the camp vibe back to European shores!
