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.

Vivid Snowboarding will be offering specific intro to backcountry riding camps this coming winter.

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

Choosing lines and safe entry routes as well as looking at how to use and become comfortable working and using transceivers. These basic off-piste skills can sometimes seem a little daunting. However with practice and repetition these skills will become second nature.

The huge variety of terrain means you will be riding different lines and locations on a daily basis. With two lift accessed peaks over 3000m and over 470km of marked runs within the four valleys you can get an idea of just how large the off-piste is.

The dates are as follows

January 9th 2017 - January 13th 2017
January 23rd 2017 - January 27th 2017
February 6th 2017 - February 10th 2017

The price for the camp will be 790CHF which includes all your coaching and guiding. We can arrange a good price on your transceiver, pack , shovel and probe if needed

SUMMER CAMPS IN CERVINIA

Summer Camps in Cervinia

The Cervinia glacier was on point over the summer. There were a huge number of features for every level of rider. Blue ,red and black features of rails, boxes and kickers. The park crew were creative with skate bowls built out of snow. The run finished with a quarter pipe at the bottom of the snowpark. After talking with the park designers, they are going to go bigger and better for next summer 2017 in time for our summer camps in Cervinia.

There are a few changes to look forward to for the winter season in Verbier. The snowboard school desk being situated in Surefoot which sites above the Big Ben pub and opposite No.1 Ski/Snowboard shop at Medran. This new venue is perfect for on the spot bookings as our meeting point is next to the shop.

Finally Televerbier are replacing the slow four man chair lift in Le chable with a fast 6 seater which will transform this area of the mountain. La chaux used to suffer from a serious bottle neck and afternoon congestion. This new lift will mean quicker learning laps for everyone and faster park laps for freestylers.

Our new website is live and with this brings new products and projects for the coming year.
