COACHES
Corinne Mayhew has coached snowboarding to elite level riders and beginners alike, all over the world. She offers psychological, tactical and technical tips for riding both on-piste and in the park, and provides a supportive environment where all questions and debates are open for discussion!

Katie Blundell's professional snowboard career
saw her take podium positions in many Slopestyle and Big Air competitions around the world. After taking a couple of years out to start a family, Katie remains one of the most enthusiastic and encouraging people in snowboarding and we're confident that this infectious positivity will rub off on all the riders who attend our Summer Progression Sessions!

LEVEL REQUIRED
The Tignes glacier boasts a wide range of features in its snow park from beginner to expert, and after this year's amazing snowfall, the staff will have plenty of the white stuff to use in their creative designs!
Several 'red' and 'blue' level runs provide the perfect warm up terrain and opportunity to develop general technique. The park is divided into a small beginners area which has a quick lap, and a higher level park which offers plenty of options on a longer lap.

This camp is open to female snowboarders and skiers of all ages! There will be a ski-specific coach available for all skiers who attend.

If you're unsure about the level required for this course, please call or email Corinne to discuss:
