Head out to Switzerland for some of the best snowboard summer camps in Europe!
Super active on the scene are the Demonium Masta camps providing summer camps from late June until early August in Saas Fee and Les 2 Alpes (France). Each week-long package is around 600 euro, which includes coaching, full board ludging and a skipass for six days.
Also don’t forget about the Iceripper camps which have been going on since years and offer top facilities and coaching on the famous Titlis glacier!
Spending a summer in Norway is a dream come true for a lot of dudes.
Make it happen and bring together two of the best things in life: beautiful girls and snowboarding?!
This year, camps will be better than ever with more activities, more pro riders, more suprises but keeping the same laid back attitude that makes this the camp with soul…
Hey, it’s really time to quit the ride for this year and concentrate on the beach, but for addicts out there who didn’t get enough days on the slopes or want to practise new tricks in the best conditions, we decided to prepare a quick round-up of Summer camps which will be held in Europe. Today we start with the camps in Les 2 Alpes!
After crossing the Alps in 2004, and then the Nice – Chamonix treck in 2006, the French snowboarder Seb Louvet, is getting ready for a new challenge : Monetiers-les-Bains – La Grave in one night and one day…through the “Dôme des Ecrins” and “La Meije”!! If the weather is ok, it is planned for the 3rd and 4th may.
To prepare this trip which includes more than 6500m height, more than if you walk up 23 times to the 3rd floor of the Eiffel Tower at more than 2000m above the sea level, Seb made many trecks during the winter.
It’s better to be super trained to make 24 hours of non-stop rise and downhill in the middle of these mythical summits!
Equiped with approach skis for going uphill, Seb needs a light equipment on his back. He’s got a Rossignol setting : Works 162 snowboard, Works Carbon bindings and Revolve boots.
Snowboarders aren’t all chairlift’s addict !!

3 month since we first posted about Stomp It, 3 month of hard labour for this British crew… But now Slappy Hour is finally out! And it’s loaded with 20mn of what snowboarding in the UK is like: fridges, plastic slopes, fun, friendship… Watch the video and give them your support on www.slappyhour.co.uk
In his inimitable smooth style, under glorious spring weather, Nicolas Mueller (SUI) claimed the first-ever Slopestyle title of TTR THREE(3)STAR Snickers Classic & Popcorn Wallride, held at Saas-Fee, Switzerland, 19th-22nd April, 2007.
The last major professional event on the Ticket To Ride (TTR) World Snowboard Tour 06/07, the Snickers Classic & Popcorn Wallride delivered a perfect and worthy ending to the snowboard season. As bikini-clad bodies bronzed in hot sun on the beach-styled Popcorn Plaza at the Saas-Fee Spielboden glacier run, riders went all-out to enjoy the super-fun Slopestyle park designed by local Swiss stars, Frederik Kalbermatten (SUI) & Marco Schwab (SUI). Starting with a cliff-drop, the course included a huge table-jump, a roller-jump, a step-up manual box and snow-box. Two qualification heats of 15 cut into a 12-man Super Final where each finalist received a share of the 10,000USD prize purse. Judges marked riders during the Slopestyle jam sessions based on overall impression through the course.
Hard-pushed to judge the striking line-up of European snowboard talent, it was Nicolas Mueller’s (SUI) creativity, fluidity and variety of tricks that set him apart from his peers. Mueller’s (SUI) stylish runs included a neat 540 off the cliff-drop, a Cab 900 Japan and snow-box jibbing – the only rider to do so.

If you haven’t heard about Scalp it means you haven’t been snowboarding on the same planet as us.
Scalp has been on the scene since the birth of snowboarding in Europe and has been showcasing it’s evolution year after year through his photography.
Senior photographer for Onboardmag and active with other magazines and brands, Scalp is a unique character in the industry. We were stocked sitting down with him for a beer and listening to what he had to tell us about his life, photography and snowboarding.
Kick back and press play for our latest video interview on BrOADER TV!
There exists a species of snowboarder that is more associated with the Gods of board sports than other riders. Most of them can recall times when they were skidding down the mountains on their homemade boards. This species is difficult to find today – or maybe it’s just too modest to reveal its true identity and heritage – although it embodies the backbone of the snowboard scene.
Once a year The Longboard Classic gets them crawling out of their holes and banding together. Once a year they do what their code and common sense forbids: hundreds of them drop into a face at the same time!
After a Le Mans-style mass start at the height of 2,408m, riders will hammer their way down 1,001 metres of off-piste to the village of Stuben (1407m).
So, if you have the heart of a shredder and an old school board or a board longer than 170 cm in your garage, you should instantly register !!
April 21, 2007 – Longboard Classic in Stuben, Arlberg
Fee: Euro 45. Includes lift ticket, event shirt, lunch and beverage
