K&T (Junior) Free-Ride Camp La Grave

The camp is designed as an active family skiing holiday for juniors and parents who wish to be able to spend time together in La Grave.

Participants in this camp should consider themselves as young athletes between the Age Group 9-13 and 13-16 years old with ski experince. The idea to run the “K&T Free-Ride Camp” came up last winter when our eight year old ”triplets” had progressed and was able skiing the Vallon de la Meije.

They had since age of three been skiing with us at the smaller family resort of Chazelet in La Grave and taking lessons with the excellent local ski school. Quite a few of our clients with similar situation mentioned during the winter that if possible they would liked to bring their own juniors to ski La Grave to explore the awesome free-ride terrain that La Grave region have to offer.

After consulting with parents we think this is best achieved by the guidance received from the experienced instructors and guides within the Guide Service allowing the participant to enter terrain otherwise inaccessible to him/her in a safe manner.

The local coaches Martin and Camille will develop and refine the skills for awarness for all-mountain skiing for the kids and teenagers. The instructors, are certified ESF and they will find the correct degree of difficulty and to provide a challenging yet safe day on the mountain and are here to help to reach their peak performance. The emphasis of our K&T camp is to be focused on two different age group (9-13 y/o – 13-16 y/o) .

The ambition is to develop confidence and positive self image.
Having fun while developing basic fundamental movement skills in back country terrain and encouraging a life‐long interest in the sport.
Provide children with the opportunity to make ski-friends.
To develop an awareness and appreciation of our natural environment.
Teach children to develop in early stage a life outdoor and winter safety skills.

Careful thoughts is given to the intineraries that are chosen for each day and runs. Each day of the camp will include coaching that will help to develop ski technic, skills of safety, descission making, understanding hazard terrain, shorter ski tour, workshops, teaching how to master avalanche transceiver, but most of all it will be fun!

Knowing the coaches Martin and Camille, they can’t wait to feel the stoke that comes from achieving a new level of skiing on the planet’s best ski terrain.

We will also include a visit to the terrain park in Serre Chevalier that is nestled at an altitude of 2000 metres in the heart of the valley. Excitement and great memories guaranteed! It incorporates about 23 different features are suitable for all abilities including 12 tables, wall ride, rails, boxes and hip jumps.

The camp is suitable for: Experienced and sporty snow sports enthusiasts and should consider themselves as young athletes. The intineraries are carefully graded according to ability and our individual coaching. On the first day Camille and Martin will evaluate the level of skiers at Chazelet.

We will try to push and offer certain dates during the school and eastern holiday break. The ambition is to fill a group with 5 participants , so we can offer a very generous junior price package!
