PRSNT Performance Retreat launches their first Womens Snowboard + Ski Self Development Camp in USA at Loveland Ski Area, CO.

Adventure. Avalanche Awareness. Yoga. Nutrition. Meditation. Digital Disconnect.

PRSNT PERFORMANCE connects female snowboard+ ski enthusiasts with nutrition and health through a weekend camp at Loveland Ski Area, Colorado.

April 5th, 2016 – Loveland Ski Area, Colorado— PRSNT PERFORMANCE, founded by professional snowboarders Kjersti Buaas and Chanelle Sladics announces the launch of their first camp in the US. This camp will encompass nutrition, yoga, and meditation with on-hill adventures complemented by an avalanche awareness workshop. This weekend will be a massive opportunity to embrace a digital disconnect and reconnect without the noise of technology.

“We are excited to add some new elements to the experience and extend it to a full weekend offering. As more enthusiasts continue to be inspired to adventure into the mountains, we feel it is really important to learn about avalanche awareness and we want to empower our campers with this knowledge, says Chanelle Sladics, Co-Founder of PRSNT.  I also look forward to opportunities to put my technology away as a group, rest my eyes from the screens and my mind from the noise to reconnect.”

The weekend will have special guests from snowboard legend Tara Dakides testing campers antioxidant levels and teaching them about having a strong defense system. “As we all know, great health takes time, effort and knowledge and not everyone has that dedication. Chanelle and Kjersti have very busy lives, but they dedicate every lifestyle choice to living and eating well and educating others on how to get started the right way,” says Tara. Followed by Olympian skier Keri Herman’s essential oils workshop.  The weekend will be completed by nutritious vegan masterpieces, prepared by Rachel Turiel, an ex-professional snowboarder and now a holistic private chef. 

“Your body is always present, it’s the mind who wanders and gets lost. We want to get women of all ages and levels together to do yoga, snowboard, ski, meditate, learn about health and nutrition, while practicing awareness of the #PRSNT moment. Being professional athletes has thought us that it is in this state that we perform our best. We want to help facilitate an environment that will stimulate the participants to get to this special place, because we know how powerful it is! We believe that whether it is on the mountain, at work or in anything you are passionate about, this state of mind is the key to performing to your fullest potential. For us the goal is for the campers to go home with tools that they didn’t have prior to the camp and to know how to utilize these in their daily life," says four time Olympian and co-founder of camp, Kjersti Buaas.

Get outside your comfort zone to discover your true self on a whole new level! This summer I embarked on an adventure and set out to paddle the whole #NaPalicoast in a kayak. This coastline, about 17 miles long, hosts incredible views of breathtaking nature and wildlife all along the way; Ocean caves, sacred valleys, intense hiking trails, tropical fish, sharks, dolphins, turtles, waterfalls and much more. For many adventurers this becomes their pilgrimage, as you definitely will face challenges on the way. It is no cell phone reception & the only way to get to the pristine beaches is to either hike the intense 11 mile Kalalau trail or travel by boat. Some people hover over the valleys in helicopters but I call that cheating 😜 I sure got my fair share of physical and mental challenges being out on the majestic ocean in a small kayak, floating over the waves in everything from stormy weather to calm turquoise water. At the same time I truly had a trip of my lifetime & would highly recommend embarking on this journey if you ever get the chance!
