Summer Snowboard Camps

Guest Author - Carol Viau

Have you ever thought about winter in the middle of summer? Have you have ever caught yourself looking at your snowboard wistfully, when it is out of season? Then I have some advice for you, satisfy the urge by going to a summer Snowboard Camp!

All across the country resorts offer summer programs for both adults and kids looking to improve their skills, have fun, and make some new friends. The best part about summer camp? It can warm up enough to be out riding in a long sleeve shirt. Often, you can even get away with a tee shirt in the late morning, but remember the sun is powerful at altitude and sunburn will occur much faster than at lower elevations.

Ability levels are paired together, so even beginners are welcome. The resorts also offer rental equipment, which can be rented by the week, so you won’t have to pay for the extra baggage if you are traveling by plane.

Typically, camp rates include meals, lodging, and transportation to and from the nearest airport. A typical day of camp starts with an early breakfast, then a shuttle picks up the campers at the lodge site and takes them to the ski hill. Everyone gets a few warm up runs before meeting the coaches around 8am. Training takes place until just after noon. At that time, campers get to watch videos of their snowboarding, while the coaches comment on the good and the bad (but in a nice way). It really speeds up the learning process to see a video of what you were doing, verses what you thought you were doing!

The afternoon activities take place off the ski hill, and they are just as fun (if not more so) than the morning! The afternoon options include mountain biking, hiking, soccer, rock climbing, trampoline, white water rafting, windsurfing, paintball, softball and tennis.

Snowboarders get their choice between a freeride/terrain park camp, and a snowboard race camp. Camps are also specifically offered for adults, kids, or the entire family! The summer camps start late May and continue through July. Costs vary depending on the dates and type of camp you choose, but they average $1000 for a week.

From personal experience, I can say that attending a summer resort camp changed my life. I highly recommend it to everyone that is interested!
