Mac packing the sport up. The burban was full of skate, snow and bike shit.The Shop Vancouver. It's so rad to see someone who was so immersed in the shred be as passionate, if not more with their professional choice after.
I like this shot Brian Finestone took. Sums up my week of #dadcamin.
And with all that above, I leave you with the story that was sent to Snowboarder Mag about the camp.
Rob Picard and camper.
During the summer, WVSC used the Camp Of Champions facilities to continue practicing what they were preaching in the winter. So when the air was let out of the Camp Of Champions tires this summer, Rob and crew grabbed a compressor and blew new life into the snow, keeping COC’s 28 year summertime glacier snowboarding torch alive, and Whistler Valley Summer Camp was born.
With help from Whistler Blackcomb, and park builders Ty Weed and Lucas Ouellet, a progressive jump line was built, as well a rail line for the kids to throw down on. And throw down they did during the inaugural first week.
Hips galore in the public park.
Killer weather graced session 1. From the WVSC park you could access the public park making laps long and full of everything you could imagine during July shredding. Snow conditions were fast and the t-bar lines were minimal. The week blew by as afternoons on the hill, led to evenings in the newly built Whistler Skate Park, as well as top to bottom bike park laps.
Does a bear shit in the woods? No but a old man that had too much coffee does still shit his pants.
A big thanks to Whistler Valley Snowboard Club, Whistler Blackcomb, Rob Picard, Joe McAdoo, Antoine Malingrey, Sam Weston, Josh Howell, Gunner Marquis and the Chomlack family for the invite, coaching and hospitality.
