Access Trips is proud to announce the launch of their 2006 freestyle snowboard camp in New Zealand to complement their existing freeride road trip. “The freestyle terrain in New Zealand is of such a high standard nowadays and we get so many campers who are mad for park & pipe that we decided to offer an exclusively freestyle snowboard camp says Access Trips founder Alain Chuard. Based in Wanaka, New Zealand, the camps run for three consecutive one-week sessions, and offer such extras as heli-boarding, bungee jumping and sky diving.

The camp’s terrain includes two superpipes, beginner, intermediate and advanced kicker lines, a huge rail park, a quarterpipe and a wallride. The park is cut daily by the shaper who’s responsible for the Winter X-Games terrain, so the quality is world-class. When asked why someone should go all the way to New Zealand for a freestyle camp Alain had the following to say: “Apart from the fact that New Zealand is one of the most incredible places on earth, it has Winter when the Northern Hemisphere has Summer. This means that unlike some summer snowboard camps whose terrain is slushy in the afternoon, we can offer true Winter park & pipe conditions that last all day. Access Trips’ New Zealand snowboard camps run throughout the months of July & August. For more information go to:
