SouthShore Soldiers Announces 2007 Spring-Break Adult Snowboard / Ski Camp at Heavenly Resort in S Lake Tahoe

Reno, NV (PRWEB) February 16, 2007

S Lake Tahoe, CA (PRWeb) February 16, 2007:SouthShores Soldiers Snowboard Camp (adult spring break) returns for a 6th consecutive season on its exclusive Soldiers Terrain Park at Heavenly Resort, S. Lake Tahoe, following its most heavily attended sessions in 2006. The three 2007 camp sessions will run for 4 days and 5 nights each, from 18 March through 2 April 2007. The private, world-class facility covers 2 entire trails with more than a half-mile of varied terrain features. It has something for everyone: from beginner jumps and rails, to fun intermediate features like boxes, kickers, and a 15-foot-high wall ride, to the 100′ jumps you see in the videos and magazines – all of which comprise the training grounds for the weeklong sessions.

Founded in 2002 by pro-snowboarder Jimmy Halopoff–former ESPN Winter X-Games and Vans Triple Crown of Snowboarding gold medal winner–and then competitive snowboarder, Rob Crosby, the adult snowboarding camp has received tremendous media exposure because of its unusual approach. Crosby explains, “The camp combines expert instruction with snowboarding pros in a fun, “spring-break” atmosphere that can get pretty crazy, especially at night!” (http://www.myspace.com/southshoresoldiers)

The sessions focus on providing guests/”campers” the best private on-hill facilities, an experienced professional coaching staff, and a very active nightlife. The camp is geared towards adults 18 and over with day-camp packages open to all ages. The beneficial, positive, on-hill environment at camp allows each person to significantly improve their skiing or snowboarding ability. According to co-owner/co-founder Crosby, “whether you are a college student on Spring Break, an experienced shredder and carver, or a businessman on vacation, we make sure camp is equally enjoyable and beneficial for everyone, regardless of whether or not they have ever been on the slopes. Want to ride more than the terrain park? No problem. Heavenly has the most ski-able terrain and the best snow on the West Coast!” (http://www.southshoresoldiers.com/camp.html)

Jimmy Halopoff points out that the school’s professional coaching staff is one of the best around. Soldiers’ Head Coach Ed McClain has produced nearly 20 USASA National Champions, 3 winter X-Games competitors, and 1 member of the ’06 US Olympic Snowboard Team. Crosby adds, “our coaching program is designed to accommodate all riders, from first time beginners to experts. Coaching groups are kept small (about 4:1 campers to coach ratio) and based on ability and goals. With nightly video analysis, and a goal oriented approach, our coaching program is dedicated to helping each person achieve or surpass their own goals at camp.”

Crosby goes on to say, “Top professional snowboarders and skiers from around the world come to camp to hit our park in the day and our parties every night. Ride with X-Games and Olympic Medalists like Danny Kass, Shaun Palmer, Eddie Wall, Andreas Wiig, Kevin Jones, MFM, Andy Finch, Travis Rice, Nate Bozung, Jimi Tomer, and skiers Tanner Hall, Rory Silva, Kristy Leskinen, Michelle Parker, and many others.” (http://www.southshoresoldiers.com/extras.html)
