Roxy, a surfing and snowboarding apparel company, is known for making trendy and quality clothing. Recently, the clothing company has been spreading good-will through fundraisers, camps and competition. As we near the end of another snowboard season, Roxy concludes their All-Star Snow Camp--a touring snowboard camp designed to allow women of all abilities to hone their skills.
Known primarily as a woman's apparel company, Roxy tries to spread snowboarding and surfing popularity by hosting camps and competitions throughout North America. Their massive snowboard competition ended this weekend at Mammoth Mountain in California. The final All-Star Snow Camp session wraps up April 9th and 10th in Whistler, Canada.
The All-Star Snow Camp has had a successful run over the 2010-2011 winter season. The camp commences every other Saturday morning at 8:30am. Roxy officials hold a 'ski-off' to divide the riders based on ability. From there smaller groups are created and they head off to different parts of the mountain.
Each group is headed by a top female rider. Women who would prefer to learn tricks can opt for a group that spends the majority of their time in Whistler's snow park.
This system allows for the All-Star Snow Camp participants to meet lots of other like-minded people while still recieving small-group, specialized coaching. The camp consists of two full ski days with an instructor. At the end of each day, the groups reconvene for a celebratory reception.
Participants have given the camp glowing reviews, making great progress over only two days. The $200 (Canadian) entry fee is a small price to pay considering what is received in return: two full days of boarding at one of the most beautiful resorts in the world, specialized coaching from a top female rider, an opportunity to meet other snowboarders, and, of course, coffee and muffins each morning.
While this year's camp is coming to a close, it's success will likely lead to another camp next year.
The camp is available to any woman aged 19 or above willing to make the trip to Whistler.
