Just got home from my first camp in about 10 years
time (Ye I have been snowboarding for a long time) Snowboarding
for 7 days in the summer is really nice!
We where training for about 4 to 4,5 hours each day
from Monday to Friday. When you are jumping and the
fastest way to get up to jump again is to go
on foot in summer snow you really regret that
you didn't train more. The soggy snow brings you back
1 step for each 2 steps you take up the hill. On top
of that you get quite wet, but who cares, about that
when you stand on the top ready to jump again.
The last to days we where just freeriding without
our instructors. Well they was hanging around, but that
was because they wanted to go snowboarding themselves.
The weather changed from sun to rain and back again.
That's normal up on the glacier so we smiled all the
time anyway :) This year there was little snow so next
year it probably be lots of it!
After scrutinizing the videos from the day we
usually ended up for a short visit at the pub. Cold
beer is really nice after a long day in the mountain.
I really enjoyed the camp! Met a lot of cool people
up there that I hope I will meet again. Next year
or maybe even before that. I could really recommend
this to others. Of course you need some snowboard experience
before you go, but other than that... I will appreciate
if you bring a big smile with you ;D
I will post some stills from the videotapes that we
shoot later on.
If you wanna go I could tell you who to call! The next
one is in 2002 ;)
