Following the recent bankruptcy of Camp of Champions, the Whistler Valley Snowboard Club is stepping up to keep the summer stoke alive. Proper coaching and a park built by Whistler Blackcomb will run for 2 weeks starting July 3rd. A great option for those who were planning on attending Camp of Champions and need that summer shred fix.

Looking to fill the snowboard void left on the Horstman Glacier this summer, Whistler Blackcomb and the Whistler Valley Snowboard Club will offer a snowboard camp this July.

Coaching will be provided by the nationally certified coaches from the Whistler Valley Snowboard Club, led by Whistler Valley Snowboard Club head coach Joe McAdoo. Campers will have access to a private terrain park built by the Whistler Parks team accessed via the Hosrtman Tbar. The terrain park will feature one large jump, two medium jumps, followed by a four pack of medium and large sized rails. Participants will upload from the Valley with coaches at 8:00am each morning, downloading at 2:30pm.
