From January 28 till February 3, 2018 this Crazy Snow Balance Camp will take place in a wonderful winter sports resort in Switzerland. Skiing, snowboarding, crazy group games, yoga, massage and mediation, moon shine hikes…
Welcome to the world of CrazyCamp.org!
High above the valley, right at the slope: the mountain is ours, the snow is ours!
We’ll have a mountain hut just for our group at an altitude of 1.400m, high above the village and you can only get there by going up with the cable car and then ski or snowboard to the hut. In the daytime we will be skiing and snowboarding in this beautiful area with ‘on top of the world’ feeling. In the evening we will organise crazy group games, we’ll cook and eat together, we’ll relax in the unique Crazy Camp Mountain Sauna, have massage, yoga and meditation sessions etc. The Crazy Snow Balance Camp will be an unforgettable snow adventure!
Our mountain hut is at an altitude of 1400m and right at the slopes (ski-in/ski-out). The ski area is not super big and not super small. There are several skilifts, chair lifts and a cable cars. Mainly blue and red slopes but also some black and ski routes. Total vertical drop is around 1.200m (1.700m if the slope all the way to the village is open but that’s not all to often) The hut can be reached over a black slope, a red slope and over an easy ‘skiweg’.
The mountain hut is simple and with a very natural feel. The beds are bunk beds in group rooms. There is a kitchen with a wood stove. There is a toilet and an improvised shower with warm water from the wood stove (shower might be outside, not inside. TBA.). Please do not expect luxury things like comfort or privacy. You will be surprised how fast you will feel at ease with everybody, in a place where you can simply be who you are, far away from your day to day environment and habitudes. Bring a sleeping bag! And if everything goes well there will be the unique Crazy Camp Mountain Sauna! The perfect way to relax mind&muscles. Target number of participants is 18. No smoking in the house or in the sauna. In the house clothing is optional, except in the sauna (faq).
In the daytime we will be skiing or snowboarding. This can be individually but we will do some things as a group also. In previous Crazy Snow Camps it turned out that the participants enjoy shredding the slopes together, teaching each other some ski/board skills, etc.
Please keep in mind that SNOW comes from NATURE so there is no guarantee for the amount of snow that will be there and for example no guarantee that all trails will be open and that all lifts will be working. In that case, we might be doing snowshoe hikes, build a kicker near the hut, or other improvisations :-)
At the end of the day and in the evenings we will be automatically together (we’re high on the slopes, there is nowhere else to go!) so we will make our own après ski. This will start with cooking and eating together, and after that lots of fun and/or meaningful activities!
Basically everybody is expected to participate in the group life at the end of the day and in the evening (faq).
Mind & Body
Although just being on this absurdly beautiful mountain is already a good reset for your stressed brain, we will be actively working on bringing back balance to your life. Every day there will be yoga sessions, massage workshops or meditations – in the hut, but in the snow around the hut as well…
And there will be the unique Crazy Camp Mountain Sauna – and jump in the fresh powder snow afterwards! as well as guided massage sessions.
There is space and time for workshop-like activities, so if you would like to share some of your knowledge or skills, feel free! Maybe you want to teach us some capoeira, do a photoshoot or make us sing the traditionals of your native culture? Just some ideas… it really can be anything. Another fun activity that we’ll be doing together is… cooking! (and cleaning afterwards…)
Your participation in the cost for these 6 days and nights is EUR 385 per person for accommodation, food (that we will cook together), guided yoga sessions, guided meditations, massage workshop and tourist taxes.
or EUR 330 if you are female and you choose to use the Gender Pay Gap Compensation (faq)
That is cheap! However, don’t come if you are only interested in an affordable holiday. The Crazy Snow Balance Camp is all about the group, spending fun evenings together, doing crazy games, and enjoying the mountains together!
