Tour Description:

The SO-GNAR Mighty Midwest Snowboard Camp Tour is a 12 stop World Tour showcasing a series of 2-day youth snowboard camps. Unlike traditional snowboard camps that require you to fork out an unholy amount of dough and travel to some unfamiliar, far-away resort, the SO-GNAR Mighty Midwest Snowboard Camp Tour brings the fun, progression and pro-rider coaching to your local shred spot. This year the camp will also be in conjunction with the first ever “Shred Circuit Traveling Contest Series”(http://www.so-gnar.com/2011/10/shred-circuit-contest-series-11-12/). At every stop on the MMW Tour, there will be a Shred Circuit. Every camper will receive free entry into the Shred Circuit and will also receive a Firehouse Beanie and a So-Gnar die cut sticker.  With 12 stops across the Midwest, Colorado, California, Washington and even Japan, this year's Tour should be the best ever.

Tour History:

The SO-GNAR Mighty Midwest Snowboard Camp Tour was started 6 years ago by pro-snowboarder and Midwest native, Pat Milbery and friends.  Pat's original goal was to give back to his hometown community in Minnesota by making traditional, expensive, distant snowboard camps available to local kids who didn't have the financial means or resources to attend.  This is the third year Pat and the awesome crew will expand the Tour outside the Midwest region to include camps in Colorado, California, Washington and Japan.  He hopes to continue the growth of the So-Gnar Mighty Midwest Snowboard Camp Tour year after year to include camps all across the globe. Half of the tour stops were sold out last year.  Based on the solid attendance, fun and growth within each community, we are looking forward to this year's  tour!
