International Superpipe builder Tyson Goodrich has completed his masterpiece sculpture at Momentum Ski Camps. ‘The 22’ Halfpipe into BagJump’s 50×50 Airbag’. It will be the training ground for The Canadian Halfpipe Team (Justin Dorey, Mike Riddle, Sarah Burke, Roz G, Matt Margetts, Trennon Paynter) and since this team happens to be part of our coaching crew will be the perfect setting to teach the new generation of aspiring Olympians.

“We are stoked to have added the 22′ Superpipe to our terrain park this summer.” says Camp Director John Smart. “It will add an unprecedented level of safety to halfpipe progression and is a great training tool for our up and coming campers along with the Canadian National Team who will be coaching them, as well as training themselves on this unique feature.”

Coaches Rory Bushfield, Tim Russell, James “Woodsy” Woods, Colby James West, Chris Wong, Andrew Clough, and Tami Bradley kept energy levels high and inspired campers young and old to push their limits and reach their goals.

The finale on Session 1 was capped off by a daring young lady, who won the SKOAKLEY  (Skullcandy & Oakley) Challenge . An intense competition full of physical tests, team work and personal determination…

How’s your week been?

“It’s been sick, it’s everything I’ve wanted it to be, I’ve learned everything I want to learn, I’ve progressed a ton.”

What did you work on?
“Unnatty rodeo, cork 9’s, boosting out of the pipe, it was sweet!”
“I like both the airbags and the medium jump.”
“Tim, Rory, Woodsy, and Colby were so fun, really funny!”
“I’m bummed I’ll be leaving.” “I’m going to build a igloo and camp out over night, and sneak on to the Glacier”

“Momentum is were it’s at!”
