If your kids are fired up to be the next free skiing stars after watching the U.S. slopestyle ski team sweep at Sochi, here’s your chance to send them to camp to home their craft.
Sunday River is hosting a two day Woodward Mini Camp March 22-23 with professional ski and snowboard coaching, training and access to a private terrain park. Woodward Camp in Copper, Tahoe and Pennsylvania are noted for some of the best instruction for young free skiers and riders in terrain park tricks, jumps and skills. They are taking their pro snow show on the road to the River. For kids 7-19, this is a huge opportunity to ski and ride with serious talent, learn to slide rails, hit boxes or maybe learn to turn out a backside rodeo right here. Woodward is also bringing a Digital Media Camp for young videographer wanting to learn to take their GoPro to the pro level. Digital campers will learn to create quality action video, then edit and export it – learning from professionals in the film and TV field.
Campers do not need to be emerging experts, the Sunday River Woodward Mini Camp is open to all abilities ages 7-19. The camp costs $329 ($269 for passholders) for two days March 22-23 of professional coaching, private park access, activities and prizes. The Woodward Mini Camp is also being offered at Killington Resort in Vermont March 29-30 and Mt Bachelor Oregon April 5-6.
Simon himself will be at Sunday River’s Woodward Camp, leading up to his 6th annual Dumont Cup the following weekend March 28-29. I suspect many of Simon Dumont’s free skiing pro bro friends will be coming back to The River fresh from XGames and The Olympic to perform and grab some of the $20,000 in cash prizes at the Dumont Cup. New for the Dumont Cup’s 6th season, the competition will be held on Sunday River’s new T72 trail which was designed by Dumont. The Dumont Cup has grown to become the largest pro-am free-skiing competition in the East, an AFP sectioned event with points on the line as well as pride and prizes.
