David will be our chef. David is a snowboarder who loves freestyle and also works as a cook when he is not on the board.
Food is key to perform at its max on the glacier, so, together with David, we will make sure we create a balanced and energetic menu that contributes to the good development of the riders.
We know that the best tricks always go unrecorded :) … anyway, we will still make sure that riders can take home a collective professional edit of their trip to Les Deux Alpes.
Ideal for training and learning from the best European freestylers
Located at 3,600 meters, on the glacier of the French station of Les Deux Alpes, this snowpark offers us areas of different levels with modules such as jumps, pyramids, boxes and rails that ensure rapid progression in freestyle.
In addition, its T-bar allows you to make the most of the training, being able to ride several hits quickly and without losing visual contact with the modules with which we are training.
It is one of the biggest meeting points for European freestyle, so it is not uncommon to find professional riders from different countries to train and enjoy all that is good about summer freestyle.

About parents and visitors
This Camp is designed for children. In two weeks or more, they can learn a lot about snowboarding with focus and training, and it is also a unique opportunity to live with their peers in an ideal environment to enjoy together the activities they like the most without their parents, developing their autonomy, self-confidence and respecting values such as camaraderie and equity.
We want you to put all your attention into learning to snowboard and enjoy the experience. For this reason, parents are welcome to visit us – especially on the day of arrival or the day of the end of the trip – but we ask for your understanding regarding coexistence with the group of children: children cannot be removed from coexistence and established plan to do separate activities or be part of the training or activities designed for children.
Will it be too soon for my child to go?
Every situation is different so if you have doubts it is much better that we talk and see each situation personally. Call us or write to us at 626921036.
