The SCUK Spring Bash
Back for a fourth year. Come and find your freestyle mojo!
Pictures from this year.
Video from this year.
Here at SCUK we want everybody riding more often, enjoying snowboarding and loving the benefits of SCUK Membership all year round. To us, that means a summer of freestyle in the UK. If you can already ride, but have "the fear" of those rails, boxes and jumps, then the fourth Spring Bash is just for you.
We'll have rails, jumps and boxes out on the slope all day, with bargain beginner freestyle coaching sessions for those that need it.

SCUK Members will get an additional 10% discount on these prices, although you'll have to phone Hemel on 08452 589 000 to make your booking.
Snow Centre Membership is £130 for adults and £90 for juniors, but SCUK Members save a whopping 55% on those prices. Now that's a saving!
Not a SCUK Member yet?
That's no problem, you can still come and play.
But... the SCUK saving on three coaching sessions is the same as the cost of SCUK Membership. The saving on entry and anything else is then just a bonus.

Definition and Maverix will be running coaching sessions all day long starting at 9.30am. Each session is for a group size of 6, will be an hour long and cost just £5 for SCUK members, £10 otherwise. Each will have a slide box and small kicker roped off for their exclusive use.
The Coaching Sessions
Maverix are coaching snowboarders only and have sessions running on the slope, box and kicker and are based on Hemel's main slope. They are also offering some girl's only sessions from midday.
All places reserved.
Definition have coaching sessions running on the slope, box and kicker and are based on Hemel's lesson slope. They have several snowboard coaches and a ski coach available. The ski coach will take any skiers booking on any of the six ski/snowboard sessions shown below.
All places reserved.
Reserving Coaching Sessions
Reservation is first-come, first-served and will close 6pm the day before the event.
Spare coaching places will be available on the day, so come and find us before each session starts. Priority will be given to those that haven't been/booked on any sessions yet and to SCUK Members. We aim to fill all sessions.
Payment for sessions must be in cash to the SCUK stand on site at least 20 minutes before the session starts. There is a cash machine on site. If you're late we will attempt to sell your place to somebody else. We'll issue you with a ticket that you need to hand to your coach on the slope. You must have a valid Snow Centre slope pass for your time on the slope!
To reserve your coaching sessions, just email firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject "SCUK Spring Bash Sessions" with your full name and the session numbers you want to reserve. So, for example, "Duncan Worrell MAV-1S, MAV-2B, DEF-4B and DEF-5K". Dunx will reply when your place is reserved or offer alternatives if they are full.

The Day Park
There will be freestyle features open from 9am, which will include at least a kicker and The New SCUK Box as well as several other rookie features. More features will be dropped in during the afternoon.
The aim is to create a beginner friendly freestyle park that should last the whole day, so snowboarders and skiers can give freestyle a go, perhaps for the first time on a session and then put what they've learnt to practice after the session. There's freestyle available all day, even if you're not booked on a freestyle coaching session.
Remember the coaching areas are for coaching only during the day, but will open up for all during the jam session at 6pm.
The Jam Session
From 6pm, the coaching stops and you get to show off a bit. The park will be the stuff you've been riding all day and will give the freestyle newbie in you a chance to put new skills to the test. We'll have a heap of sponsors and lots of prizes to throw down. At a SCUK jam, we give prizes to people giving it a go and you're just as likely to get a T-shirt for falling over as doing a front-flip. Team GB rider Billy Morgan turned up last year and didn't win a sausage. We'll have lots of stuff to give away on the night with the help of MC Pocket.
I Want More!
Butta will have their waxing tent with them and will be offering free hot waxing out on the slope, whilst the following brands will have demo equipment for you to try free-of-charge on the day.
