How long are the camps?

The 4*** camps are 8 days of coaching over a 12 day window, typically running on Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday. Wednesday is the usual day off but may be used as a weather day. The middle weekend of the camp may also need to be used if we experience extreme weather.
Our 5***** Snowboard Instructor Training camps are aimed at certified instructors, aiming towards their next level of certification. They vary in length between 3 and 6 weeks long, depending on the level of certification they are aiming towards.
What level are the camps?
4**** Terrain-Focused Snowboard Camps are for aimed at advanced riders. To join these camps you must have been on a 3*** camp previously, or ridden with one of coaches in another capacity. These camps help you take big steps in your riding progression, in a super-positive group culture with other riders looking to push their abilities in specific terrain. You might be progressing on to bigger jumps in the park or working on airing out of the halfpipe. You might be learning to euro carve or get your powder slashes locked in. Your goals can be varied, but try to pick a camp that is focused on the environment you wish to progress in (e.g. steeps). A lot of Level One and Two certified instructors join these camps to help them progress to their next level of certification.
5***** Snowboard Instructor Training camps are aimed at certified instructors, aiming towards their next level of certification. They are tailored specifically to high levels of certification and include a range of on and off-snow training opportunities. Each camp has a minimum level of certification required to join.
How many people per group on the camps?
What kind of riding are the camps focused on?
How can you run camps at privately owned resorts like Cardrona?
Why do only some camps include passes and/or accommodation?
NZ camps have the option to add a discounted season pass covering both Treble Cone and Cardrona. Some of the NZ camps also have accommodation as an optional add-on too.
What happens if the lifts or resort closes?
In the highly unlikely event that the resort is closed for multiple days in a row and we cannot use an additional at the end of the camp to make up for it, we cannot provide "make up" days later in the season.
