AMP CAMPS

The AMP (All Mountain Performance) camp brief was simple… design a trip WE would want to go on… this is it!

Focusing on making intermediate and advanced riders into all mountain ninjas by teaching you the skills to ride any terrain with confidence and head-turning style, topped with a healthy serving of freestyle expression.

Your lessons will develop the underlying tech skills needed to own all terrain and then apply this to carving, switch, steeper slopes, trees and off piste where conditions allow. The freestyle aspects of the course will show you how easy jibbing around the slope and hitting the park can be. We’’ll teach you how to take a boring run and see new ways to play and use it as a blank canvass to strut your tricky stuff.

You’’ll also get to enjoy 4 half day sessions of mountain hosting from our friends at Ridewell Lodge. Add to that a whole day with a pro photo shoot and you really have an awesome package of fun and learning new skills!

 

LTS CAMPS

Our LTS (Learn To Shred) camp is here to help first timers fall in love with riding the mountain while enjoying a snowboard camp experience. It’s how we wish we had learnt!

During the morning lessons our supportive coaches will help you quickly progress from first binding click to first turn and beyond, all while wearing the biggest smile possible. Onyx developed teaching methods are tried, tested and shown to be most effective learning techniques around, so we’ll soon have you riding with confidence and exploring the mountain like a pro!

You then have the afternoons to practice your new skills and enjoy mountain hosting on 4 occasions from our friends at Ridewell Lodge. Add to that a pro photo shoot on one day so you can make your friends at home green with envy upon your return and your first week snowboarding really is in the awesome category!
