This Saturday marks the start of the JumpCamp season on Forbidden Plateau with the JumpCamp Jam.

The Jam is a one-day shred clinic for snowboarders of all ages and abilities who want to have fun and progress their skills, especially in the park and backcountry. “There will be prizes for everyone from the sponsors, barbecue,  jumps, tunes, jibs and more,” organizers say.

“Go roll your quarters, return some bottles, beg your parents, sell your skiis… Do whatever you gotta do cause the JumpCamp Jam is not to be missed. There’s going to be a ton of talent on-hill to give you inspiration and support and no matter if you’re a beginner or a super-shred, we can teach you the skills to go to the next level,” said a spokesperson.

As coach Joe Conley states, “If you think you are beyond the need for coaching , think again. With a low coach-to-camper ratio, you are guaranteed plenty of knowledge to improve your riding at JumpCamp.”

The JumpCamp Jam runs Saturday, March 5 from 9:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. and includes professional instruction in the private snowboard park and product giveaways. The cost for the Jam is $100 ( including taxes ).

The camps are open to all boarders and helmets are mandatory. Riders under 18 need a parent or guardian to sign a waiver. Registration takes place at Onethirtythree board shop, online at www.jumpcamp.com, by phoning Patrick at 250-898-8891 or in the upper parking lot of  Forbidden Plateau from 9 to 9:30 a.m. on Saturday.
