Summer Overnight Camp
Why attend the NLSCamps18 at Snowflex?
Reason #1: No Snow? No Problem!
Our motto is No Snow? No Problem! Why you might ask? For most skiers and boarders in the Midwest and on the East Coast summer shredding (aside from sketchy backyard setups) is just not in the budget. Mount Hood and other summer snow setups are just too far away and expensive. Come check out the year-round slope that local Virginia riders (and Europeans) have been shredding for years!
Reason #2: Safe Progression
Snowflex is the best synthetic surface for safe freestyle progression! Two of the biggest benefits to riding our slope as a freestyle boarder or skier are the consistency of the slope and the fact that there is a 2 inch layer of foam padding which helps with absorbing the harsh impacts sometimes experienced when learning new tricks. We also have an arsenal of easily interchangeable features, a progression of 3 different sized jumps, an Olympic Trampoline (now with trampoline skiis and boards) for practicing aerial awareness, and a BagJump Airbag for safely sending your first flips and corks.
Reason #3: Next Level Coaching
During the first night of each camp session our coaching staff hangs out around the mountain to watch campers ride. Campers are then split up into Beginner, Intermediate and Advanced freestyle groups at the end of the night based on their abilities. Each morning campers will shred different areas of the hill with their coaches and group to ensure that they ride a variety of features and jumps each day with riders of similar ability levels.
Tentative Daily Schedule
Counselors wake up the Campers (7:30AM - 8AM)
Breakfast at the Reber-Thomas Food Court (8AM - 9AM)
Morning Coaching Session (9:15AM - 11:45AM)
After breakfast it's straight back to the dorms to get ready for the morning coaching session at LMSC. Campers will have 45 minute sessions with their groups at each of the three different stations (Rope Tow, Upper Rails, and Jumps).
Lunch at the Reber-Thomas Food Court (NOON - 12:30PM)
Freetime Activities at various LU Facilities (1PM - 4:30PM)
Bouldering at the Lahaye Rock Wall, hiking to Camp Hydaway and skateboarding at the Liberty Mountain Skate Park are just some of the many options for campers during freetime.
Dinner at the Reber-Thomas Food Court (5PM - 6PM)
Night Session at Snowflex (6:15PM - 10:45PM)
Over four hours of shredding with various competitions and events mixed in. This is when campers can take laps with their coaches and friends in a relaxed environment. The BagJump Airbag and Olympic Trampoline will also be available for campers to use at this time.
Back to the East Campus Dormitories for some much needed sleep (11PM)
