1 Week Girl's Snowboard Camp With Tammy Esten & Treeline Chalets In Avoriaz
For the first time ever, this winter 2016/17, MINT Snowboarding founder Tammy Esten will be hosting her very own Girls Snowboard Camp in Morzine!
Tammy has been snowboarding (the world over) for more than 20 years and been teaching professionally for 15 years. In 2005, she became the first female snowboard instructor ever to be awarded the highly regarded ‘Carte Professionel’ allowing her to teach snowboarding at the highest level in the French Alps.
In 2006, Tammy founded the highly successful MINT Snowboarding in Morzine, and to this day remains the only British female Snowboard School director. With her roots firmly in the UK snowsports industry, she has been a ROXY ambassador & has a wealth of experience in coaching female snowboarders of all ages & abilities. She has a whole host of knowledge both from her personal riding & teaching experience and it’s because of this, mixed with her being a super friendly & fun lady, that we think she’s the best female snowboard instructor out there! Now she wants to share her love of the shred with you!
Tammy has tailored the course content of The Girls Snowboard Camp specifically for females at Improver, Intermediate or Advanced levels who want to develop their technical snowboarding skills all over the mountain. The main focus of the coaching throughout the week will be on technical progression with opportunities to develop your off-piste riding & freestyle skills.
Tammy will work with you to build your confidence in all areas of your riding. By the end of the week you will be achieving snowboarding goals you never thought possible.
Of course, the aim of the week is to progress your riding to the next level, but you will do this while having fun, a whole heap of laughs and a serious bit of luxury in the extremely well-equipped and regarded Chalet Cordée, hosted in Morzine, by the award winning Treeline chalets.
The chalet provides everything you could ever want from a winter holiday. After riding you can make the most of the spectacular views over Morzine from the outdoor sunken hot tub, relax in the sauna or just enjoy a hot chocolate in front of the TV and log fire, while your chalet host cooks you dinner. Chalet Cordée is only a 10 minute walk to the centre of Morzine and all of its restaurants and bars, but to be honest, we don’t know why you’d want to leave.
Tammy has created a fun and engaging evening program, which aims to compliment the on snow day activities and coaching. This includes video feedback sessions to further improve your performance on snow and post riding pilates, stretch and unwind sessions with the superb Georgie Kennington (a local pilates guru). Tammy will also hold an informal evening seminar to discuss the psychological aspects of learning a sport and overcoming obstacles to progression. And finally, for those that wish you will finish the week with an adrenaline boosting evening of night sledging on the Pleney.
This is a complete ladies’ snowboarding camp, one of the few in Europe and certainly the only one in Morzine / Avoriaz. The number is strictly limited to 12 participants, so if you, or you and your girl friends like the sound of this, book now, before it’s too late!
Six half days of coaching in small groups. The group will be split into 2 with daily course content being varied depending on group riding level.
Day 1: Advancing riding technique. Tammy will develop your existing skills by analysing your riding, then focusing her coaching where you need it most, including equipment advice and optimising your setup.
Day 2: Coaching you in the movement skills which will enable technical progression and increase your board performance. Tammy will also film your riding (with zero pressure!) so she can analyse your riding and coach you based on your specific needs.
Day 3: You will implement the skills and techniques gained over the previous 2 days across a range of terrain and tasks to progress your riding. The aim is to enable you to use your equipment effectively and develop a fluid riding style all over the mountain.
Day 4: Off-piste riding. Tammy loves powder!!! She will take you beyond the lifts into un groomed snow to further advance your riding technique on natural terrain and varying snow conditions.
Day 5: Introducing freestyle skills both in and out of the snow park, including switch riding.
Day 6: Backcountry adventure down Vallée de la Manche for advanced group. Similar adventure, but less challenging, for less experienced groups.
