Action-packed days. Unforgettable nights. Fun and sun ? it?s what spring break is all about. But here in Lake Tahoe, it?s also about snowboarding legendary conditions. This year experience the ultimate spring break at the Southshore Soldiers Snowboard Camp at Heavenly Ski Resort, March 11 ? 15; 18 ? 23; or 25 ? 30. The Southshore Soldiers Snowboard Camp combines every element of spring break into one.

Created and directed by professional snowboarder, Jimmy Halopoff, the Southshore Soldiers Snowboard Camp is geared to give riders “an authentic look inside the lives of professional snowboarders, while staying true to the spring break traditions?meaning great snowboarding and great nightlife.”

Halopoff, who is currently featured in Activision?s newest video game “Shaun Palmer Pro Boarder,” and holds such titles as the 2000 Vans Triple Crown big-air champion and a 1997 X-Games Gold Medal, expresses his passion for teaching and sharing his expertise with fellow boarders:

“I remember going to snowboarding camp and it not only improved my skills, it changed my life?snowboarding became my life,” recalls Halopoff. “It?s that passion that I want to share with others.”

Geared toward intermediate to expert riders 18 years and older, the camp focuses on improving snowboarder?s overall riding skills. Whether you?re into your freeriding, hitting the park or shredding the pipe, trained coaches use on-hill instruction and daily video review to take your riding ability to new heights. “Video review is essential in improving your riding skills,” supports Halopoff. “It provides you with a visual image of where improvement is needed and gives you something to work on the next day.”

Each camp session includes four days of lift tickets, on-snow training, private use of a half pipe and terrain park built and maintained by Frank Wells, who also builds the pipe and park for the X-Games and Vans Triple Crown contests. Participants can demo the latest equipment, including boards, boots and bindings from choice companies. Additional highlights of the event include guest appearances by snowboarding pros including Kevin Jones, Todd Richards, Tara Dakides, Shaun Palmer, the Grenade Crew, Josh Dirksen, Jason McAlister, Gian Simmen, and Scotty Wittlake just to name a few! Every camp participant will score huge sponsor giveaways like snowboards, gloves, sweatshirts, t-shits and tons more. Plus, depending on the snowboard package, you?ll enjoy everything from a five-night stay, including daily complimentary breakfast and drink specials (non-alcoholic and alcoholic beverages are available) and private Southshore Soldiers? parties.
