This year Nicola Thost, 1998 Olympic halfpipe champion and one of the best female snowboarders ever, launched her own SnowCamps! And this is the highlight: It is only for girls! Our German editor can tell you from her own experience that it is a blast to go shredding with a bunch of super motivated young girls, the guys in the park just trying to get out of the way due to this unexpected female army... What a great experience!

But to get back to serious business: The first camp this winter, the Kick Off Camp in Kleinwalsertal (GER) from January 27 to February 2, is coming closer and closer and you shouldn´t miss it. Not only will you ride in an epic resort but also acquire and consolidate your skills with expert snowboard coaches on the slopes, in the park and backcountry.

But the Kick Off Camp is only the start. Nicola will be on the road with her classy Camp team the whole season to contribute to your weekly winter missions of “step-by-step snowboarding progression in premium ambience", as she says herself.
