Now taking booking for MINT Mini Shred Snow Camp 2020! Please see follow the link below:

Skiology were stoked to team up once again with MINT for the Mini Shred Snow Camp 2019! The success of previous years young shredders was inspiring with skill, confidence and style all developing quickly with the MINT team.

The 2019 Mini Shred was so popular that we sold out by mid-summer 2018 and had to add more dates! So now is the time to book for Winter 2020!

April is a great time in the season for children to get into snowboarding. Due to the sunshine and soft snow as well as lessons purposely picked at a time in the day when the kids are fuelled up and focussed, we have the recipe for boarding success! We will also provide you with a private shuttle to the lifts in the morning and back again in the afternoon to make sure mum and dad feel like they are on holiday too ?

MINT Mini Shred Lessons

  • Lessons are scheduled to run on the Avoriaz area for both weeks (4th-11th and the 11th-18th April 2021). Either from 11.45 – 13.45 hrs or 14.15 – 16.15 hrs. The lessons are scheduled at this time to avoid the mornings which are icy at this time of year. The soft, slushy snow in the afternoons is much better for kids learning to snowboard. Encouraging confidence and independence much quicker in the learning process.
  • The lessons included are on a basis of 2 kids, of similar age & ability, to one instructor.
  • If you wish to book further lessons, this can be done directly with MINT Snowboarding. We suggest that this is done in advance if you wish to book private lessons with the same instructor from their first lessons. The cost per two-hour private lesson is 155€ for one child. Alternatively, we can wait until nearer the time to see if there are other suitable children for your child to share extra lessons with.



Kids aged 3 & 4 years are much better suited to individual private lessons. At this age, the 1-on-1 help of an instructor helps maximise their enjoyment. It also avoids them from getting frustrated waiting around. The lessons will be in Avoriaz for both weeks of 4th and 11th April 2021 where the beginner areas are serviced by button lifts.  These can be a struggle for kids at this age and so is much less of an issue when the child is 1-on-1 with an instructor. They can either be helped all the way up or they can travel further giving better ski lift options.

There is a supplement of 75€ to pay (directly to MINT Snowboarding) for your child to receive 3 x 1.5 hr private lessons.
