JumpCamp Jam March 17 at Forbidden

Snowboard camp offers instruction and fun

Airdogs, rippers, shreds and gorbitrons take notice!

It’s JumpCamp time again on Forbidden Plateau, and it all kicks off March 17 for the JumpCamp Jam.

This year, JumpCamp has teamed with the Forbidden Plateau Mountain Resort and built a private shred facility. The JumpCamp Jam is a one-day shred party packed with booters, jibs, barbecue, tunes and prizes for only $75.

JumpCamp is an all ages and abilities snowboard camp at Forbidden, the birthplace of Vancouver Island snowboarding. JumpCamp is for snowboarders who want to progress their skills, especially in the park and backcountry.

All camps run from 9:30 a.m. – 3:30 p.m. They include professional instruction in the private JumpCamp park, tons of prizes for everybody from the sponsors, barbecue, demo boards to test out and a ratio of one coach to every five campers. The camps are open to all boarders. Helmets are mandatory.

From the beginner to the experienced, JumpCamp will help sharpen your freestyle skills on a personal one-on-one level. “No matter what your skill level is,” said coach Patrick Kitto. “There’s always room for improvement and JumpCamp is the place to do it.”

Each camper will become a much stronger rider during this two-day clinic.

Info and registration is available at Onethirtythree board shop, online at www.jumpcamp.com or by phoning the JumpCamp headquarters at (250) 871-6836.

So if you’re looking to improve your snowboard skills, get your registration in and see what a session at JumpCamp can do for you.
