Southshore Soldiers Camp Back Again for Spring Break

The annual Southshore Soldiers Snowboard & Ski Camp will be back in March, 2005, at Heavenly Mountain Resort in the heart of South Lake Tahoe for the fourth consecutive year. The spring break camp, founded by veteran pro snowboarder and ’97 X-Games Gold Medalist Jimmy Halopoff, gives guests the chance to enjoy the best in snowboarding and world-class nightlife. The camp focuses on providing campers with a rewarding on-snow experience, unforgettable nightlife, and a firsthand look into the lives of professional riders as our guests spend time on and off the hill with the world’s top pros!

At Southshore Soldiers, campers have the privilege of receiving personalized coaching from members of our professional coaching staff while riding the camp’s private terrain park alongside some of the best snowboarders in the world including Danny Kass, Andreas Wiig, Kevin Jones, Tara Dakides, Eddie Wall, Shaun Palmer, Travis Rice, and Marc Frank Montoya. Our private terrain park is designed, built, and maintained by the masters at, Heavenly, and our own professional staff. The Soldiers Park has a wide variety of jumps, rails, and innovative boxes ranging from terrain to help develop fundamental skills in beginners, to confidence boosting intermediate features, to huge jumps and technical rails for the pros. We are committed to keeping our private terrain park a beneficial, non-intimidating place for all riders to learn, improve, and have fun no matter what their previous ability or experience.

After riding, things really begin to heat up with the weeklong lineup of nightly parties, entertainment, and events for the campers, staff and guest pros. With six major casinos less than1 minute from the camp hotel, nightlife is literally endless at Southshore Soldiers. Not only do guests get to ride with the pros all day, but they have the chance to get to know the pros at our private nightly events. Each night the party is different, with events like live bands, DJ’s, mechanical bullriding, bowling, VIP parties at the casino nightclubs, product giveaways every single night. All of this is the reason why Southshore Soldiers is the perfect place to come improve one’s skills, spend time with the pros, and let loose on spring break!

The camp is open to anyone age eighteen and over, regardless of snowboarding ability level or experience. There is also a “day camp” option that does not include accommodations, and is open to anyone age twelve and over. Packages include five nights accommodations, four-day lift ticket to Heavenly, professional coaching, access to our private terrain park, nightly parties, free product and more!
