Momentum Camps – Session 1 Recap

July 1, 2013

After months of anticipation, crossing off days on the calendars, finally summer is upon us… and Session 1 was a great week!!!

Flying into Vancouver International airport and then being whooshed off to paradise. Campers and coaches were ready to experience the #BestSummerEver. With the largest park in our 22 year history, it was time to get the shred on!

Extra lanes have been added to accommodate all the new features!Overview Glacier - STU 2

Let’s walk through the park….Start off with the Switch-Back rail line, which has been extended.

Then jump onto the private t-bar to take another lap down the Moguls, XL Jump line, Rail-road and Halfpipe! No line-up = Fast-lapping.

The XL jump line features a 55′ into an 65′ double step-up plus our famous 80′ step up with a landing bigger than ever. Digger Brendan Reid demonstrating how it’s done. With Noah Morrison and John Smart watching on.
