RIKSGRÄNSEN FREERIDE CAMP
3rd-10th of April, 2022
The ultimate freeride camp. Voted best freeride resort in Scandinavia, this spot is perfect to bring you a mix of freeride skill development as well as some amazing splitboarding. The long sunlight hours allow for longer days on the mountain, or more time in the sunshine at après.
This course will blend riding improvement on unparalleled freeride terrain above the arctic circle with the development of basic splitboarding skills.
Join me and a group of like minded people in an adventure that will give you the tools to explore mountains like you've never done before.
WHO IS IT FOR?
If you have the desire to improve your freeride skills in off-piste terrain, look no further! This course is also for the one who wants to become familiar with splitboarding, as a few course days will be reserved for this.
We recommend that you are at least at an advanced level of snowboarding so that the group can stick together at all times. If you would like to get yourself to that level, contact me to figure out what you can do to get there before the course starts.
We also recommend a moderate to high level of fitness. Splitboarding and bootpacking can be demanding at times. We will be walking uphill for periods of up to 2 hours at a time, potentially multiple times per day. It is also recommended to have splitboarded at least a few times before and have basic knowledge of the gear.
Contact me if you have any concerns or questions.
Day 1 - Sunday
Settle into your accommodation and we will gather for some welcome drinks at the hotel bar.
Day 2 - Monday
As soon as the lifts open, we will hit the slopes and get to know each other. The objective for this day will be to set ourselves some technical goals for the week, while starting to explore freeride techniques.
Day 3 - Tuesday
Today will be a continuation of Day 1. More terrain and skills will be explored, so as to maximize our riding experience once we go splitboarding.
Day 4 - Wednesday
GEAR AND SAFETY
Today will be about making sure we know our splitboards and all the tools available to us while out on a touring day. We will also spend a good part of the day discussing avalanche terrain and safety in the backcountry.
Day 5 - Thursday
SPLIT DAY 1
Today we ride our splitboards. We will learn how to maximize efficiency when transitioning from walk to ride mode, as well as explore all the walking techniques you will need to save yourself some energy to get to all the peaks.
Day 6 - Friday
SPLIT DAY 2
The adventure is full on. We head out on a search for some well deserved lines full of untouched snow. we will enjoy lunch out in the hills, so make sure to bring something to eat!
Day 7 - Saturday
You have the option to go on another splitboarding day with me, or we can arrange for a heliski day for you if you wish to do so. You can also just spend the day enjoying the resort or rest.
Day 8 - Sunday
If your departures are not too early, we will organize to meet for one last breakfast at the hotel restaurant and reminisce on an amazing week in the mountains before saying our goodbyes.
