In for some shredding? Great! The Snow Committee is responsible for everything with the word ‘snow’. We go snowboarding every Thursday night at Montana Snowcenter at Valkenswaard. We also go to other skidomes once in a while, like Zoetermeer, Rucphen, Peer or Landgraaf. Once on the slope, we rip it, in other words: we freestyle. This means riding tubes, rails and (if available) jumping on kickers. We also go to trampoline park JumpXL every week to experience airtime and learn different kinds of flips and rotations.
This year, the Snow Committee went back to the Dark Ages to form the Order of the Avalans, and it will charge forward to organise the following big activities:
- Powder trip – A long weekend of freeriding in the Alps
- Snowverheid trip – A week of shredding pow, hitting kickers and sliding rails in the Alps along with our sisters DROP and SPIN
- Shredpret – A freestyle event in Montana Snowcenter open to all boarding students.
- Bispingen – A trip to the dome with the biggest indoor park in Europe
For an impression of these events (and more), check out the Avalanche Boarders YouTube channel.
Would you like to join the knights of the Order of the Avalans, or just show us an awesome jerry movie? The responsible boardmember of the snow committee is Ties Hendrickx and the chairman is Kristian Snel.
