Vivid Snowboarding Freestyle Camps 2020 - 2021

Vivid Snowboarding Freestyle Camps 2020

Vivid Snowboarding Freestyle camps  2020 - 2021 will be running during the February holiday season and the Spring holidays.

 

The five day camps are the perfect way to raise your freestyle skills and to become comfortable and confident with riding the snowpark.

 

The Verbier snowpark has features for all levels of rider. The progressive nature of the park really helps to improve your riding. There is a superb mixture of snowpark features. These range from a fluid line of blue kickers, red kickers and black booters to ride on boxes and more advanced rails and jib features.

 

All the Vivid Snowboarding freestyle coaches are very experienced park riders and coaches. They will get the very best out of you and your riding.

 

A typical day might start with warming up a few of the basic freestyle tricks like the ollie and nollie. These could be linked into pressing the board and generally getting a solid feel for the board and the snow conditions. This could lead onto a flatland 180 session getting comfortable with both landing and taking off switch.

 

By mid-morning when the body is sufficiently warmed up its time for a few snowparks laps. These could focus on getting comfortable riding both kickers, boxes and rails.

 

All sessions will be filmed and Instagram edits and posts will be had by all.

Please get in contact for more information on our freestyle camps.

END OF SEASON UPDATE 2016/17.

End of season update 2016/17 for Vivid Snowboarding in Verbier. 2016/17 will not be remembered for its volume of snow. November saw widespread snowfall across the Alps. A few team members enjoyed early season powder in both Zermatt and Stubai. A lingering high pressure parked up over central Europe lead to endless sunny days with no precipitation in Verbier. The beginning of December was mainly spent riding park on the Glacier 3000. The park consists of beginner to intermediate kicker lines. Perfect for getting ones skills tuned up for the coming season. The holiday period of Christmas and New year was mainly spent riding on artificial snow. The Verbier mountain staff did an epic job is creating widespread cover across the mountain. The advantage of Verbier over some of its neighbouring resorts is its altitude. It has the ability to blow snow when mother nature has not been playing ball.   A few natural snowfalls were seen mid January and then more in mid February. Our first backcountry camp was a success and we look forward to more camps next winter.

Verbier Snowpark

As much as the lack of snow effected the more backcountry minded rider. The Verbier Park crew knocked up one of the better the parks seen in the resort over the last few winters. They seem to be making a slightly more user friendly park which matches the natural terrain of La Chaux. Nothing too big and scary with progressive features for all levels of rider. We also saw an encouraging number of new riders on the mountain this past winter . The lack of snow was meaning a few skiers were making the cross over to set themselves a new challenge.

Lots of new and exciting projects for the summer and beyond for Vivid Snowboarding. Keep an eye on our social media channels . Thank you to all our clients who enjoyed sessions with us over the winter. We look forward to seeing you all again next winter.

Burton Snowboards test day with Vivid Snowboarding and Wave Rave Shop. A weekend long board test in Verbier. The boards and bindings were free to try and test and the shop were giving a 20% discount on any purchases on boards.

Check out our edit of the weekend.

A whole range of boards were available to test. Some more freeride shapes were on offer in the form of the Landlord, flight attendant and branch manager. These were all strong performers when hitting up some playful off-piste terrain. The general feel from the team was that the Flight Attendant was the most versatile out of the freeride test boards. We also tested out a few of the different freestyle shapes. The new Custom freestyle through to the process and process of axis were all quality boards. The general vibe was the process with the cartel binding seemed liked the overall freestyle winner.  [/fusion_builder_column][/fusion_builder_row][/fusion_builder_container]

FREESTYLE CAMPS

Vivid Snowboarding the Snowboard School Verbier will be offering specific freestyle camps this coming winter.

The Verbier Snowboard School has put together a five day freestyle camp that aims to build both your technical riding and over all confidence in riding the snowpark.

Initial sessions will look at flat land progressions and becoming comfortable with popping the board off both edges and being able to power up and jump off both the nose and tail. Basic rotational work will also be added looking at buttering the board as well as performing all the 180 rotations. We aim to add a freestyle flavour to your everyday riding.

Verbier is the perfect playground with plenty of altitude that guarantees the snow until the end of April and a modern fast lift system which means more riding time.This added to the park in La Chaux which is shaped daily and has a good progression of features for all levels means Verbier has the perfect freestyle mix for progression and fun.

We will be building backcountry kickers if conditions allow and we have cameras and drones on standby so everyone gets an edit of the camp
