The Vivid Snowboarding middle of winter Freeride camp is for the more advanced rider. Everyone should be comfortable and confident in their own ability in the backcountry. This five day off-piste feast will be focused on finding the very best snow and terrain on offer. The vastness of the four valleys with its huge variety of mountains with varying aspects means we can search, explore and ride some of the Europe’s finest backcountry terrain. Even in more hostile conditions when the light is reduced and the visibility is flat there are endless tree riding options.
Safety is of paramount importance through out the camp and therefore all safety equipment is obligatory. If you do not have your own safety equipment (transceiver, shovel, probe and airbag) then you can hire this for an additional fee.
The camps will be run by one of the two following coaches:
