Red Bull joined us to film mogul skiers Heather McPhie and Mikael Kingsbury while they were up training.
The $100,000+ super slow-motion Phantom camera is sure to capture some impressive visuals, not to mention slow Mikael Kingsbury down enough to see how he tears down the bumps.
Also from the mogul world, US mogul champ Sho Kashima was out coaching with us this week.
NBA star Kobe Bryant also showed up and took a few laps through the park.
Campers were pretty stoked with all the action going on.

While Austin Ross helped photographer Stew cool down with a slash in the pipe.
Another way to keep cool was to jump into a pool. Therefore it was time to make a splash and get wet! The annual Momentum SPLASHDOWN displayed pro and camper talents to the Whistler community.
Top pros and campers took to the ramps to flip, spin and splash!

Thanks to SBC Skiers’ Jeff Schmuck for also MC’ing the event.
The week was filled with a ton of activities too. Including trampolining at mega-facility Bounce,
and trying not to get eaten by bears..?
Instead eating at a different restaurant each night with your coaches was more fun.
An absolute awesome session! Thanks to all the coaches, diggers, staff and campers!
And to our sponsors for hooking up everyone with sweet prizes!
