How long are the camps?
The longer 4**** and 5***** camps typically have one day off in the middle somewhere, however this is kept flexible to allow for weather or energy levels within the group.
What level are the camps?
3*** camps are aimed at intermediate to advanced riders, looking to progress their skill set in specific terrain. To join these camps you should be confident on all groomed trails. For intermediate riders, this is about building your confidence in the terrain specified in the camp description (e.g. steep off-piste or terrain park) and learn new skills in how to tackle this terrain. Advanced riders looking to polish their skills in a short time frame will get a lot out of these camps also, as they will have the opportunity to ride a little slower and get LOTS of feedback.
4**** camps are for advanced riders specifically. To join these camps you must have been on a 2** or 3*** camp previously, or ridden with one of coaches in another capacity. Theses are typically week-long camps that help you take big steps in your riding progression, in a super-positive group culture with other riders looking to push their abilities. 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, as the terrain we ride on these longer camps is also varied. A lot of Level One and Two certified instructors join these camps to help them progress to their next level of certification.
5***** camps are for expert snowboarders. These camps are more guiding and less coaching. We find the best conditions on the day and get a LOT of laps in. If you're a highly experienced snowboarder, who can ride any terrain from steep backcountry pow to big jumps in the park, this is for you! These camps are ideal if you want to explore a new resort with top coaches who know it inside and out. Note that most 5***** camps are run in tandem with a 4**** camp, so we have the ability to split riding levels more easilly.
