Momentum Camps

We have been operating summer camps on the Blackcomb Glacier since 1992.  Over this time we have been a big part of the wild evolution of skiing. From twister spread to triple cork 12’s, Freestyle Skiing today is alive with a vengeance and summer camp is where much of this innovation was conceived. Halfpipe and Slopestyle have now joined Moguls on the Olympic roster, so Momentum is perfectly positioned to help coach the next generation of skiing stars. Many national and provincial teams come to Momentum each summer to perfect their skills and inspire the up and coming generation. Whether you are an aspiring competitor or a highly motivated recreational skier or snowboarder, we continue to lead and feed the sport in the safest manner with perpetual enthusiasm, inspired from coach to athlete.

We have expanded our camp over the years to include snowboarding in 3 sessions, as well as 2 weeks of Big Mountain and our Film + Photo Camp Exposure.

Our focus since the camp’s inception has been to ensure that you have one of your best life experiences and more importantly, leave a much better skier than when you arrived. Our record and list of former campers who have gone on to become the new stars of the ski world is unmatched by any camp. Our formula is simple, we use the best athletes in the world to teach you. This has become easier over the years as many of our coaches, who are now Olympians, World Cup Champions and top pros, were former campers themselves and understand what it takes to create an unforgettable camp experience.

The key to our and your success is that the coaches don’t just ride…they teach, motivate and inspire!

Over the years our private terrain has expanded substantially and we now offer the highest, largest and most diverse terrain. We build in real progression, from small 5 foot jumps, to intermediate level and advanced jumps.  In addition we offer a great variety of rails and our world class mogul park. This summer we will again have two huge airbags, including the Progression Landing Bag, allowing campers to train new tricks safely before trying them on snow. Located right beside the highest T-bar we offer a fast turnaround and plenty of mileage!

Off the glacier, we have done our best to make sure you experience the most of Whistler in comfort and convenience. Our Full Package camps includes luxury hotel accommodation in the heart of Whistler Village, along with an all-inclusive meal plan featuring, breakfast, juice break, all-you-can-eat lunch and dine-around dinners that allow you to experience different restaurants in the village each night.

Whistler’s wonderful summer season offers a huge range of afternoon activities, which are all included in the Full Package price: from waterramping, paintball and trampoline, to mountain biking, climbing, sailing, stand-up paddleboarding, yoga, soccer, bungee and more… With there being so much to see and do in Whistler, we have added an extra day off snow in Sessions 1, 3 and 5, so you can truly enjoy this special place.

We look forward to providing another fun-filled, action packed and progressive camp. I hope you will be able to join us, as I am confident you will have the time of your life and will leave an improved and more motivated skier or snowboarder.
