【Sign Up Period: Dec.11-Jan.16】ICC No-Border Skiing and Snowboarding Camp (Feb. 17-19)


If this is the year that you would like to give skiing or snowboarding a try but don’t want to break your budget, or if you would like to make new friends regardless of nationality, or even if you just have an opening in your schedule for the long spring break, then don’t miss this ideal chance to solve all of the above with the ICC’s No Border Skiing and Snowboarding Camp!

Don’t worry if you have zero experience skiing or snowboarding.
The camp includes lessons meant for beginners with an instructor who will make sure everyone has a safe, fun time. Moreover, the camp includes a stay at a hotel located right at the slopes!

This camp will also use the ICC’s unique No Border rules.
This means that using your real name, telling where you’re from or what year you are in school is not allowed throughout the trip.

Come experience a deeper way of getting know people that comes without any preconceptions. By the end of the trip, you will have some winter sports skills and close connections with new friends, so come and join the fun!
