Momentum 2016 – Session 2

July 14, 2016

Our second session of the summer was especially memorable due to the massive number of mogul skiers we had attending camp, in addition to the huge group of park skiers who came from all over the world! With the Canadian National Mogul Team training at camp during the session, our campers were in for a treat as they were able to perfect their skills alongside the top team in the world.

As it was our second week into the summer, both the mogul lanes and our terrain park were primed and perfected, ready to be attacked by campers and top pros alike – creating an exciting atmosphere for progression and fun for skiers of all levels. New for this year was the addition of our brand new 40′ S-rail – a tricky feature for everyone to test their skills at the very bottom of the lane!

On the mogul side, the coaching lineup was highlighted by our top 2 Canadian mogul skiers – Mikael Kingsbury and Phil Marquis, and also included Mike Henitiuk, Chris Wong, Tami Bradley, Matt Joosten, and more!

Once skiing ends, the fun doesn’t stop! This is Bounce Trampolines, where campers can work on their flips and air sense on a multitude of different types of trampolines!

If campers need a break from flipping, sailing on the lake provides nice views!
