The second session of the summer was greeted with never-ending sunny skies and a motivated group of campers that were hungry to ski! With it being our Olympic Week, our coaching roster was stacked with Sochi and past Olympians, including 3 medalists from these past – Joss Christensen (Slopestyle Gold), Nick Goepper (Slopestyle Bronze), and Mikael Kingsbury (Moguls Silver). On top of a star-studded lineup of pros, session 2 also played host to an awesome Canada Day celebration, constant entertainment from none other than Colby James West, as well as our Canadian National Mogul training in our lane.
