After spending a week in Pila with the BoardnLodge Snowcamp crew I'd already booked myself onto the Morzine camp - there was still a good few weeks of the season left and I didn't want to miss out! The Pila camp in the Aosta was amazing and definitely gave me the bug to go again! We had stayed in Hotel La Chance; a new luxury property, a short walk from the lifts, and provided a great base for the weeks slopeside antics! With a spa complete with sauna, steam room and hot tub, we were able to rejuvenate in style after each epic day of riding.
So from experiencing the Italian treatment the month before this time we headed out to Geneva and set off towards the mountains where we arrived in the buzzing town of Morzine. Offically my 4th Snowcamp with BoardnLodge I knew what to expect and as always, I wasn't disappointed. With around 20 campers, it was a great bunch of people all who were stoked to be there and were sharing their stories of their love of the snow. We had a couple of crew who were not far off beginners right through to some strong riders who were already pretty comfortable in the park, so it was definitely a wide mix of abilities!

The vibe on the camps is electric with the company founder, James Kellow and his team of coaches (headed up by Westbeach pro Steve Addicott), on hand to get everyone excited about the weeks freestyle tuition. I was stoked to get to ride the pipe in Avoriaz under the expert tutition of Kate Foster, who is currently the British Half Pipe Champion; it was great to see her riding the pipe too - inspiring stuff!

The Morzine chalet had a games room and a large living room and dining area where we all gathered in the evenings to swap stories from the day; who landed what trick or who managed to do a back flip on the air bag.
I'd definitely recommend a Snowcamp if you want to improve your riding and meet some great people! I wouldn't have dreamed of doing some of the stuff we did with the BoardnLodge guys if I was on my own!
