Park and pipe camps at Aomori Spring; for young developing talent and elite level athletes alike.
Winter 2018 will see the Aomori Spring freestyle ski and snowboard camp offerings ramp up to a new level. We’ve partnered up with some of the world’s best skiers, snowboarders, coaches and designers to offer elite and youth training facilities, catering for a wide range of athletes.
Aomori Spring Resort will be working with renowned coaches Elijah Teter, Benjamin Boyd and Naoki Wataya of Pro Camps Asia. They bring a wealth of experience and knowledge, having coached many top-level athletes including Olympic and X Games medal winners Ayumu Hirano, Hannah Teter, Kaitlyn Farrington, Kazu Kokubo and Ryo Aono.
We will be running two tiers of camps in 2018 – a Winter Camp for up-and-coming skiers and snowboarders, and a Spring Camp for emerging and elite athletes.
Camp skiers and riders will gain access to premium quality features, purpose built for high performance training. Personalised service, limited participant numbers and exclusive facility access will ensure effective on-snow training time.
Olympic and World Cup halfpipe builder John Melville of Development Snowparks will design, construct and maintain the halfpipe and terrain park features for the camps.
Facilities vary by camp but may include:
- 22 foot halfpipe maintained daily with the Global Cutter pipe shaper
- 22 foot quarterpipe with Bag Jump landing
- High-level terrain park features, including extensive jump, rail and box lines
- Video analysis sessions
- Day and night lift passes
- Accommodation at the ski-in ski-out Rockwood Hotel & Spa with three meals per day
- Access to gym and onsen (hot spring)
- Aomori city airport or train station transfers
Please contact us for coaching only pricing.
The Aomori Winter Camp offers intermediate to advanced athletes a chance to hone their skills and train on freestyle features in a relaxed and safe setting.
The emphasis is on a well-rounded progressive approach and training may include trick progressions on boxes, rails and jumps in the terrain park; riding the halfpipe; riding powder and carving skills; and detailed video analysis.
