|Coach Lauren with Clare Sullivan|
A new snowboard program at Cranmore has been designed with female riders in mind. The Revolution Girls Camp is designed for female riders 13 years or older. Lauren Swymer one of the lead camp instructors is incredibly excited about the new camp. “This is a camp that focuses on the beginner snowboarder, with some freestyle involved to help people with their style and it focuses on having a lot of fun riding.” One of the main proponents for having a women’s specific camp is that there are a lot of male snowboarders out there and Lauren Swymer and other coaches want to see more females out riding and enjoying the sport that they have such a deep passion for. When you sign up for a Revolution Girl Camp lesson you are paired with a female instructor, which customers so far have really enjoyed. Clare Sullivan was the first person to try the program had this to say “I was up last weekend and had a GREAT time! Thank you Cranmore team. Everyone was so kind, patient, and very encouraging! I would highly recommend the program.”
|Working on the basics|
There are two different types of lessons that you can take. One is a lesson set up for the beginner snowboarder who has never tried the sport or someone with very little experience. This lesson is $89 and it includes a lesson, rentals, and a lower mountain lift ticket for the day. If you are someone who is a little more advance, there is a freestyle lesson. This focuses on fine turning skills that you already have as well as working on terrain park elements. Cranmore have 5 different terrain parks that range from beginner features to more advanced, so there is something for everyone. If this lesson is better suited for you, it is $59. You must provide your own equipment for this lesson.
With the snow being fantastic right now and with our snowmakers continuing to build our snow depth higher and higher, there is no better time to get out and try something new. These programs are meant to be relaxed and welcoming. Load up your car and bring your girlfriends and yourself to Cranmrore.
