A lot of Sun – GREAT WEATHER-, Snow, Kickers, Rails, Boxes and MANY MANY GIRLS – last week the K2 Girlie Camps visited Laax .
K2 Intern Sibylle visited the Girlie Camps the last three days in Laax. All the girls and the coaches were staying by this time at the famous hotel Riders Palace in Laax. They spent the first 4 nights in the mountain hostel on the Crap Son Gion and the last 3 nights in the Riders Palace. During the week the girls could enjoy a great coaching from the Girlie Camp coaches and K2 Riders Julia Baumgartner & Pia Meusburger, some Joga lessons, went to the SPA in Flims, learned how to wax theier boards and enjoyed the last sun on the Mountain Hotel Grap Son Gion
Every morning, all the girls met to have breakfast together and after this – The Mountain was calling!!!! After a warm-up run on the slopes all the girls went into the beginners Park and started to practice tricks and to learn some new tricks. The Girlie Camp Coaches Miriam and Leena and K2 Team rider Julia Baumgartner gave useful tips to the girls to push them to the next level. Also during the day the coaches filmed the girls while doing the jumps and tricks. The video analysis should help the girls to improve their skills on the board.
The girls who participated at the Camp where from all over Europe, they came from Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, Austria and one of the girls was Australian. All the girls were motivated to learn some tricks from the coaches and pushed each other to do some new jumps. After enjoying the last sun at the Crap Bar all the Girls met for the video analysis where the coaches explained to the girls on what they should focus the next days while doing the tricks. The girls also learned how to wax their boards. Girlie Camps Coaches Leena and Miriam showed how they wax the boards. After this it was the girls turn. Every girl had the chance to wax her own board.
The next day started with an awesome breakfast at the Piazza in Laax. Even though the weather wasn’t as good as the day before all the girls were motivated for their last day on the mountain. After some warm-up runs some girls went straight to the park to improve their park skills. Another group of the girls first made some runs on the slopes and then went to ride the pipe. Thanks to Yvonne from Box Magazine, a former Swiss Pipe Rider, the girls learnt how to ride the pipe correctly. Because it was the last day the girls could tell where they wanted to ride and so some spent the afternoon in the pipe, some in the park and some others on the slopes.
In the evening all the Girls met for dinner at an Asian Restaurant. After Camp Director Leena hold a speech and gave out some goodies for the stoked girls, all together celebrated the great week then at the Riders Palace Bar or there is a rumor that some went down to the club for some partying=).
