Extended Description

Get a Whole Bag of New Tricks

This course is designed specifically for skiers and snowboarders who want to make serious improvements to their air, grab, rotation, rail and all-mountain jibbing skills.

First class coaching. With 20 hours of focussed training per week, our freestyle junky instructors will push you through boundaries and allow you to see the park with a whole new level of confidence. Training will be catered to your ability, so don’t worry if you’ve never even felt air underneath your skis or board, we’ll soon set you straight! And, if you’re ready to perfect your 720s, our coaches will see you stomping them regularly.

 

Banff is the perfect place to perfect your skills

Parks galore! There is so much freestyle terrain to be enjoyed in Banff. We’ll give you a lift pass for all three of the local ski resorts: Lake Louise, Sunshine Village and Norquay, each of which takes real pride in producing an epic terrain park. The resorts’ competition with each other works in our favour! There’s such a massive variety of kickers, rails, boxes, hips, spines and other kooky features, your tricklist will just grow and grow.

Canada’s party town. Freestyle snowboarding and skiing always seems to go hand in hand with next-level partying. There’s no better Canadian town to hit on a night out than Banff. It has a legendary lively and friendly vibe in its abundance of bars, clubs and restaurants.

 

Enjoy Sunny Spring Sessions

Spring time in the mountains is when everything slows down and you start to enjoy chilling out in a sunny park, so late March is the perfect time to take a course like this. Plus, being late in the season, it means that you can take this course after completing one of our 11 week instructor courses.

Extra activities. We’re called Nonstop for a reason – we’ll set up loads of fun things to do off the slopes and also run a ski / snowboard maintenance clinic.


Itinerary

Arrival

Arrive in Calgary and take the transfer to Banff. On arrival at The Voyager it's a case of unpacking and some sleep for most but then there's always a few who are keen for a sociable night cap.

 

Day 2

This is your chance to arrange any equipment you may need (we'll offer you guidance on the best shops and what gear to get) and settle into Banff. It's also a leisurely day to find your legs and explore the mountain.

 

Days 3-4

Each lesson day we provide five hours of coaching. Your group will visit all of the resorts in Banff, depending on where the best conditions are. Over the first two days of coaching you'll get comfortable on the features and find your freestyle form.

 

Day 5-6

Two more days of lessons. By now you will be well adjusted to the time difference, the legs will be feeling a bit stronger and you will be feeling more in tune and confident on your skis or board. Your coach will help you achieve some personal breakthroughs and push you into more challenging tricks.

 

Day 7

A free day to play on the mountain of your choice!

 

Departure

All good things must come to end! Take in the picturesque views of Banff and the surrounding areas as you make your way to Calgary to begin the journey home.
