Animal Snowcamp 2009

Love Snow? Go Eco with the Animal Pro-team

The Animal Snowcamp is hitting the slopes again in 2009, and this year it’s even more eco friendly. To solve your dilemma of how to get your time on the mountain while also doing your bit to go green, this year the Animal Snowcamp will be based at the luxury BoardnLodge EcoLodge in the French Alps. In addition to the usual formula of a week riding with the Animal pro-team, pushing yourself on the mountain, and sharpening up your skills on the snow, this year you’ll also have eco-friendly accommodation. And if you come by train you’ll get an additional 5% discount and maybe even a free beer!

Riding with the Animal pro-snowboard team will boost your technical skills, mountain craft and all-round riding ability whilst soaking up the awesome terrain of the Tarantaise region. From park to powder, campers will be pushing their riding each day on the mountain under the watchful eye of the Animal pro team – including the likes of half-pipe master Dom Harington, Olympic contender Kate Foster and freestyle geniuses Johno Verity and Sonia Shaw. Each week is hosted by two of the team who are a valuable resource of insider tips, advice on equipment or just helping out with mastering a new move. This year the snowcamp is spreading the Animal love and opening it’s doors to skiiers for one week only, who will be in the good hands of Ben ‘Bungle’ Hawker and sharing the slopes with the snowboard crew.

Campers are being encouraged to travel to the camp on the snow train from St Pancras on the Friday night ready to join the camp’s base in Bourg St Maurice bright and early on Saturday morning. Bourg St Maurice is base camp to high altitude resorts Les Arcs, St Foy, Val d’Isere and Tignes to name but a few, meaning the group will get to pick the best spots for the conditions each day.

By way of reward for your good citizenship (and to help beat the credit crunch), the Animal Snowcamp is offering a 5% discount to all campers who go green and travel by train. This year they’re also adding a little luxury to the mix at the BoardnLodge EcoLodge which offers a sauna so campers can alleviate any aches and pains at the end of a hard day riding. Add to this gourmet cooking, a minibus powered by restaurant waste oil and power from a green energy provider, and you’ve got the recipe for a good week maxing it up on the slopes and a guilt-free good time!!

The Animal Snowcamp costs £690 and includes lift pass, full board accommodation, all transfers, tuition and guiding – not to mention a free Animal goodie bag!

The camps are being held Saturday to Saturday on the following dates:
24th Jan – 31st Jan
31st Jan – 7th Feb
14th Mar – 21st March
21st Mar – 28th March
