elooa Camp4 - back to the roots in Allgäu!
The 4th edition of elooa Camps happened last weekend in Grasgehren in the bavarian region Allgäu. Already during the 80´s, when snowboarding was still a fringe sport and forbidden in most resorts, Grasgehren already welcomed snowboarders by heart. As a matter of course, elooa had to go back to this roots and pic this resort as a camp location. The cozy „Grasgehren Hütte“ was the perfect accomodation to get with only one quick lift ride directly up to the snowpark. All super motivated campers enjoyed multiple runs surrounded by good music and friendly locals. The whole first day was filming and with this footage everyone went back to the hut for dinner and a „XXL video coaching“ with Elias Elhardt and the elooa crew. The final „sunday funday“ included riding with Elias in 10cm of fresh pow and in a fresh shaped snowpark. So all the shredders improved their skills, where amazed by the riding of a pro and had tons of fun. Thanks to the professional filmer and photographer, even everyone got his riding secured in pixels as well.

elooa Camp3 - with deep powder into 2012
elooa starts with perfect conditions in Garmisch-Partenkirchen into the year 2012. Only the fresh shaped Terrainpark Zugspitze got covered by snow during a big snowfall just before the weekend, so the elooa Camp had to move over to Hausberg. The lesson for the morning was riding fresh pow! Snowboarding legend and Garmisch local Xaver Hoffman showed the campers the best powder runs in his homeresort. After this warmup the misson for the afternoon was to build jumps and get some airtime with powder landing, so the motivated snowboarders could learn a a lot about the backcountry as well as freestyle tricks. Wet and tired but super stoked everyone went to the Lodge for burgers and the videocaoching. On sunday Xaver showed us another "secret spot" near Kreuzeck where we built the first ever elooa funpark by ourself. In a 4 obstacle run with jumps, hips and jibs all the campers were able to practice new tricks and improve their individual skills thanks to the pro coaching. By noon the sun came out on time and a real backcountry jump was ready for the video- and photoshooting. The elooa camp was over in the late afternoon and everybody left Garmisch with a big smile and tired legs.

The second elooa Camp took place on Stubai Glacier from 2nd until 4th of december 2011.

A closer look at their tricks was taken at the video analysis in the evening. Through the helpful tips from the pros they could also improve their individual style. The results were amazing and the participants could stick their first boardslides and even 540s on the last sunny day. All this was rewarded with a professional photoshoot, like the pros do. To celebrate the great atmosphere within the group once again, there was another highlight for farewell: besides a great stuffed goodie-bag, every camper received a free ticket to the Relentless BigAir in Stuttgart to follow Elias and support him loudly.
