Another banger camp up at Kaunertal...
From 06.05.-13.05.2018 the elooa CAMP GOOD TIMES by NITRO SNOWBOARDS was once again at Kaunertal. Participants from all over the world came to Snowpark Kaunertal for the fourth edition of the summer camp. Snowboarders from Canada, Germany, Austria, France, Italy, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Romania, the Czech Republic, Belgium and Switzerland were there to have a good time together and to pursue their passion for snowboarding. In addition to the 200 campers who checked in at the elooa camp for 4 or 7 days, hundreds of day visitors were welcomed and the whole glacier was full of snowboarders. A unique spectacle and a renewed growth for the event.
Almost the whole NITRO SNOWBOARDS Family including the two founders Sepp Ardelt and Tommy Delago and Team Manager Knut Eliassen. The numerous distributors, national team riders and of course, the international team with stars like Sven Thorgren, Marc Swoboda, Elias Elhardt, Ludvig Bilthoft, Nico Bondi, Dominik Wagner and many more who just had a great time together with all elooa campers. In perfect conditions with 7 days of sunshine, Kaunertal conjured an incredibly extensive and creative snow park setup. Numerous kicker variations, hips, wallrides, rails, tubes, boxes and many transitions.
Between riding, the participants could test Nitro Snowboards of the upcoming season for free and enjoy the Camp Vibe with chilled music at the Parkbase.
In addition to a lot of snowboarding with photo and film sessions, there were also spontaneous sessions every day with campers and Pro's paired with plenty of tips and coaching from the elooa team. In this context also a big compliment to all shapers, who did an incredible job and worked daily until late at night.
Next to snowboarding on the mountain prevailed the accommodation always a super pleasant and relaxed atmosphere. Everyone present, whether pros, campers or coaches, have lived together and let the day fade away. Skating with pros, a run of table tennis tournaments, a football game camper against pros, a party with DJ Kid Salute and a Beer Pong evening ensured fun and entertainment in the evening. On Friday there was a detailed video coaching for all campers with their elooa coaches and on Saturday numerous prizes were awarded for the most impressive participants.
For the grand finale, a live concert by the nitro band "The Almost Pretty Good Band" awaited all guests. The first appearance since the 20th anniversary of Nitro Snowboards! The band consisting of the founders Tommy and Sepp, Marc Swoboda, Jonas Hagström, Ives Ardelt, the Delago children and many more provided a party mood and an incredible atmosphere.
Of course, as always, these many impressions were recorded by professional filmmakers and photographers such as Lorenz Holder, Michi Lehmann, Markus Rohrbacher, Luca Crivelli, Julian Pintarelli and Alex Pfeffer.
The elooa team would like to thank all who were there and helped and a special thanks to NITRO SNOWBOARDS and Kaunertal.
