Your Kids 'Too Cool' for Ski or Snowboard School? Try The "I Ride Park City" Freestyle Camp.
— Posted by Jon on January 7, 2013
Across North America, Ski & Snowboard School have gone through a massive change over the years - gone are the days of trying different and inconsistent techniques on the students and teaching through trial and error in oversized classes.
Park City Mountain Resort's Ski & Snowboard School is very up-to-date in the latest teaching styles and current trends so our guests can learn quicker and in a safer and more fun environment. One of the trends is kids wanting to progress in the freestyle arena.
Now we offer everything your young up-and-coming ripper could want - even if they're "too cool" for traditional ski or snowboard instruction. One of our new and exciting things we now offer is the "I RIDE PARK CITY freestyle camp. Let me break this down for you. First of all, you get your own private terrain park just for camp participants, so you learn at your own pace. It's a 3-day camp so it gives you plenty of time to improve your freestyle, whether it's on jumps, rails or pipe - and make friends! Campers shoot each other's progression with GoPro cameras, and go into our media lab toward the end of the camp to work together and make their own video edits to leave with as a souvenir.
The camp is open to kids ages 11-15 and with any level of park experience, whether they want to take their skills from the rails to the pipe, or have never been in a park before - all campers must be intermediate level skiers or snowboarders.
Just like all of our lesson choices, all camp sessions are limited to no more than five campers to a coach, meaning campers get time to know the other kids in their groups AND get plenty of time with their own coach. Get a spot in an "I Ride" camp now and enjoy one of the most progressive instruction programs we offer!
The "I Ride Park City" camp is offered during select portions of the season, with the first coming up soon:
Martin Luther King Weekend, January 19 - 21, 2013
Presidents Week, February 20-22, 2013
Spring Breaks, March 12-14, 2013; March 19-21, 2013; March 26-28, 2013; April 2-4, 2013
