Carving Clinics are here!!

Recommended Posts

ECES Carving Clinics

Sign up for your carving clinic now. Some great people have offered their time to put on several carving clinics during the event. Clinics will be available for all ability levels. Clinics will be of two flavors: traditional carving with Ian MacKenzie/Eric Brammer and Pureboarding with Joerg Egli.

At this time we have clinics scheduled for Wednesday and Thursday of the event.

Morning sessions for both clinics at 9:45AM and afternoon clinics for traditional carving at 1:00PM (See event schedule for more details)

If you are interested in taking part in one of the clinics please post in this thread with the clinic type, day and time you would prefer. Final groupings for day and times will be made by those running the clinics. Also if you could rate yourself based on Ian’s rating scale-

*Ian, Eric and Joerg are donating their time for free, tips are encouraged

Novice - are new to carving equipment, or are learning to carve consistently on select terrain

Intermediate - can carve consistently on most terrain, but are still refining style and skills

Advanced - can carve confidently on all terrain, and look great doing it

Some info on the on these great individuals-

Ian MacKenzie

Snowboarding since 1989 (age 10), passionate hardboot rider since '93

Level 2 CASI (Canadian Association of Snowboard Instructors) certification; he has taught at two snow schools.

Ian puts a fair bit of effort into teaching new riders locally and organizing small sessions.

Ian teaches standard technical content, but also encourages riders to move past technical details and ride with higher awareness and flow.

Eric Brammer “PSR”

Anyone who has been around the Alpine community for any amount of time has heard of Eric and the quality of his instruction. He has been snowboarding and instructing longer then some of us have been walking. Spending some time riding the mountain in an Alpine clinic with Eric will improve any riders abilities (Ask anyone who has spent time with him). He has taught some of the best riders on Bomberonline over the years.

Joerg Egli

Someone that everyone in the alpine community should ride with. Joerg runs Pureboarding.com and is the premier ambassador for Alpine snowboarding world wide. When you first meet him you will immediately see his immense passion for the sport. And this passion is what makes his clinics so worthwhile. He is a natural instructor and will take you to the next level in no time. And you will have fun doing it!!

^ Hi Michael,

GeoffV has asked me to organize the 'traditional' clinic groups as you guys sign up. Please note that Joerg's PB clinic is scheduled for the morning, and Eric's clinic in the afternoon.

Cheers!

Hello all,

It's great to see this response so far! I hope you guys are looking forward to this event as much as I am :D. A few notes:

  • We have a some riders at the novice or novice/intermediate level signed up for Wednesday afternoon; I'd encourage others at the same level to join that session.

  • Wednesday morning is pretty popular so far, but it can be split between Eric and myself, so there is more room still. I do feel that smaller groups will be more beneficial to you, the riders, as you'll get more individual attention. If anyone is interested in Tuesday am instead of Thursday am, let me know and I'll move my session if there are a few people interested.

Please keep adding your names to this thread, but you can refer to this Google Doc to see more easily which sessions are filling up:

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me a message!

Cheers,

Ian MacKenzie

Would be willing to move to Tuesday morning or afternoon if that is needed to fill a spot. I figure the sooner someone tells me what to do (and what I am doing wrong) the more time I can spend "perfecting" it on the hill.

^ Thanks for offering Tabatha, but I think you're in the right spot now ('cause I've seen you ride) You're on the money though, I was thinking that riders might benefit from earlier clinics... which would also allow opportunities for follow-up questions after a few days.

There is lots of 'instructor availability' left, so don't be shy!

Cheers!
