OurCamp @ Ride & Slide – Snowboarding freestyle perfection

The only freestyle camp in Europe offering 6 full days on mountain instruction, luxury chalet accommodation, and live-in coaches. They are designed to be fun, informative, fun, and most of all fun! Our week long camps are run for people who want to improve in their freestyle snowboarding.

The snowboard camps are aimed at riders looking to develop their skills, whether it is making your first jumps in the board park, venturing into the halfpipe and superpipes, or moving on to bigger and better things. The camps are mainly aimed at freestyle although depending on conditions this might not necessarily mean in the parks (take a look at a few of the photos in our Gallery from one of last years camps- the bowl we sessioned was untouched and only ridden by people on the camp for 2 days! – https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.780821731945223.1073741833.139142556113147&type=3) Most people find the camps to be an amazing way of improving their overall riding abilities whilst spending a week in a luxurious chalet environment. Aimed at all ages, ladies, men, couples and friends all welcome! It is a great way of meeting and riding with likeminded people from all walks of life. The OurCamp pros will be on hand with tips and encouragement pushing all our campers to progress their freestyle skills, not only on the hill but through video analysis and after riding stretch and yoga sessions. This year will be a lot more about riding with the professionals and seeing how they do it, getting inspired to try things you have always dreamed of under the watchful eye of someone that has years of professional riding under their belt. Be it tips on trying your first 180 or some advice on how to get started in the world of competition, the OurCamp riders are on hand to help, above all, they are there to have fun and provide you guys with a crew to have a brilliant time with. In addition, full coaching and tuition will be provided by our friends at REAL Snowboarding, qualified by the British Association of Snowsports Instructors to the highest level (ISTD) and French Moniteur National (Carte Professionnel) delivering a fun and professional snowboarding experience you will receive the very best available instruction.

Food and accommodation were great, and i was particularly glad of the hot tub after a hard day in the snow park with the Our Camp team. Hosts could not have been more helpful in sorting out my snowboard bindings – Thanks Jordan. It’s our second time at Ride and Slide and Chalet Guytaume is just as good. Many of the other holday makers were also returning for a second if not fifth time. Now i’m just dreaming of the improvements i might make next time, as i watch the Olympic slope style events. “Great week in morzine” Reviewed 4 February 2014 Stayed there doing a snowboard camp and really enjoyed my stay. I was very happy with everything. Staff friendly and very helpful. Food was very good, lovely the chalet, good location Ride and slide do a great job and the chalet host could not be more helpful. would certainly recommend. they really do seem to have thought of everything

  • Room Tip: Great staff ,great food, great place Good times would certainly stay there again

“Best week on snow. Fact.” Reviewed 1 February 2014 What an immense time we had last week with the Ride & Slide guys… again! There’s nothing more that you’d need for a snow trip – super friendly, helpful staff (who didn’t mind me continually demanding things… scissors/teaspoons/water filling!), continuous amazing food (with my dietary requirements taken on as a chef’s challenge rather than a problem!), sauna and hottub for easing the riding pains, robes and slippers for that extra luxury, an awesome games room, and most importantly an incredibly warming atmosphere from everyone who just genuinely loved being there. The chalet’s a super easy walk into town (or 1 minute bus ride for lazy days!), very clean chalet, everything sorted for us, and epic days up the mountain. What more could you need? Thank you Dave, Jordan (who even came back to the chalet when he couldn’t sleep so he could help guests to the 5am transfer!), Zoe, and of course to the completely awesome Lisa and Jon – can’t wait to see you all soon. We’ll be back…again! :) Kaz x
