Kevin137 There are many ways to learn in a camp that do not involve going to the USA or Canada...

I would start with looking at something a bit closer to home.

Look at Maverix Snow Camp

https://www.facebook.com/MaverixSnow?fref=ts

Maverix Snow Ltd | Snowboard Coaching | Snowsports Retail

They do European courses throughout the winter...

Mayrhofen Winter Snowboard Coaching Courses

Have a look and see what it is about, will save money on travel etc, everyone will be there for the same reason to learn, and you will make new friends that are EU based that you could potentially travel with again in the future throughout the EU...

Just an idea...

jtg for what it's worth, there is really no risk of -29C (-20F) at whistler or mt hood even in the middle of winter. For most of the winter, we are just happy if it stays below 0C.

We CANT change the weather or be sure how will it be...
But its so obvious and easy to understand that DURING THE WINTER the weather conditions are much more "bad"than summer...

Just think with your mind(if that is possible)that if i go on a winter camp and the weather is fully rain,FULL snow,-20,wind with 50KM/h then its like you get 3.000 and BURN THEM!!.

Can you understand this or is it difficult for you...

I did many trips for snowboarding...
I did snowboard chanmonix,les deux alpes,hintertux(with temp? -29Celcious) but then i didnt pay 3.000euro and also i just did snowboard and no lesson or camp!



FOR SURE winter camps are much better because snow conditions are much better...BUT if you are 20h away by plane it would be more safe to go on a summer camp!
alright boss i'm not going to get into an internet pissing contest. the point is that you shouldn't have asked the kind forum members about which is the best snowboard camp, when that isn't really the information you are looking for. instead you are looking for meteorological forecasts to determine the right time of year to go to a snowboard camp so that you will not have to endure extreme cold, snow, rain or ice. i would think you would find it difficult for any of us to be able to answer that with even the slightest degree of certainty.
you go in summer you ride in slush and risk rain
you go in winter you ride in snow and risk... more snow
pretty easy decision to make from my standpoint but hey different strokes for different folks

You said only about cold..I also did snowboard many times wth -10 and -20 but if there is a FOG??
If the snow is fully ice?
If its snowing all the time?

Its so easy to understand that winter weather its more difficult to have a great day in camp rather than summer

Donutz Rain. If you want crap weather, you should have mentioned rain. Nothing crappier than trying to snowboard while you're getting rained on. Bleah.

As you know i'm not from US-Canada,im from Europe and where exactly?Greece
So i will book everything as soon as possible and then i wont be able to change my plans(bookings etc)
And if i go there and the weather "s@cks"?
Snow?Fog?Too much cold?

This is the only reason that i prefer summer-spring than Winter...
Because winter camp will be like Russian roulette.!

jtg Let me get this straight. You want to learn how to snowboard but you don't want your experience to be ruined by the chance that it may snow?

As mentioned already, with spring camps you get less than ideal riding conditions most of the day because it's too icy in the morning and too slushy in the late afternoon.

Think of it like this. With winter riding you can get a good day and ride 9 am to 3-4pm. With spring riding you get up there around 9-10am, wait until 11-12 pm for the ice to melt, get a couple hours riding, then leave because it becomes too slushy to hold an edge properly.

Honestly if you can do winter, I see no reason why you'd pick a spring camp over a winter camp.

Guest coaching from pros at most summer camps is also overrated. I'd take a good instructor over a random guest pro coach any day of the week.
