Best Snowboard-Camp Value - 2013
So-Gnar Snowboard Camp Tour
The seventh annual So-Gnar Snowboard Camp Tour from Golden-based pro snowboarder Pat Milbery and his fun-loving So-Gnar posse featured local stops at Loveland and Winter Park this season for kids of all ages — with some moms, dads and grandparents in the mix — focused on having fun in the terrain parks and on custom features (like a bright-orange couch) installed just for the occasion. The camps (this year's tour made a dozen stops across the U.S. and one in Japan) are beginner-friendly, but they also cater to intermediate, advanced and expert riders, with a focus on fun and creating a positive vibe to encourage safe progression. At $125 for a two-day camp session with a small army of pro riders, the So-Gnar camps are far and away the best bargain around for anyone looking to learn new tricks.
