Shred dawgs, take notice! The 2014 JumpCamp sessions are rapidly approaching with the first camp taking place March 1-2 up on Forbidden Plateau – the birthplace of Vancouver Island shredding.
With the latest dump of snow in the hills the crew at JumpCamp couldn’t be happier. JumpCamp is an all ages and abilities snowboard camp for riders who want to have fun and progress their skills, especially in the park and backcountry.
“JumpCamp provides coaching in the slopestyle discipline as well as freeriding,” said coach Patrick Kitto. “Our campers are typically recreational snowboarders who want to strengthen their freeriding. Riders vary in skill from beginners who want to learn how to jib their first rail or hit their first jump, to more experienced riders who want to learn and perfect new tricks,” he added. “And with all this fresh snow the conditions are perfect.”
JumpCamp’s location on Forbidden Plateau is an ideal setting to improve your skills with its rolling natural terrain along with JumpCamp’s man-made, private terrain park with jumps and rails that vary in size so you can start small and work your way up.
JumpCamp sessions are kept small to maximize the camper’s fun, progression and provide coaching on a personal one-on-one level. Whether you’re a beginner or just want to learn some new tricks, JumpCamp is the place to take your skills to the next level.
“Each camper will become a much stronger rider during this two day clinic, guaranteed!” Kitto said
The camps run from March 1 through to April 19 (on weekends and during spring break) and are open to all snowboarders. Camps include professional instruction from 9:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. and product giveaways. The cost for the weekend is $275 (taxes included). Information and registration is available at Onethirtythree board shop, online at www.jumpcamp.com or by phoning Patrick at the JumpCamp headquarters 250-898-8891.
