After watching the snowboarders in the Olympic Games, have you ever wanted to improve your technique for riding the rails, boxes and hitting jumps in the terrain park? Maybe master the halfpipe?
There's some good news if you've reached that point. Perfect North Slopes in southeastern Indiana, near Cincinnati, is hosting its seventh annual Pink Flamingo Camp (PFC) March 20-21.
The two-day camp, $150 per person, includes breakfast and lunch and access to exclusive PFC terrain. No rental equipment will be permitted in the class and helmets are strongly recommended.
PFC always has a great atmosphere where riders of all levels can learn something new and have a great time doing it. PFC has come to be known as the place for riders throughout the Midwest to come for post-season riding, with unique features that both push riders and facilitate learning. Coaches focus on what riders want to learn while emphasizing Smart Style and Terrain Park Etiquette.
It's one of the best terrain park camps in the lower Heartland and attracts riders from Ohio, Kentucky, Tennessee, Illinois, and, of course, Indiana. Maybe you'll never be a Shaun White or Louie Vito, but if you want to become a better, more confident rider this camp will help you achieve that.
Perfect North partners with a number of hotels/motels throughout the area - Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky - that offer lift and lodging packages. Weekend packages start from $148 per night and include lift tickets. Some even include a complimentary breakfast. Links are available on their Web site.
