Summer Camp Roundup

With All The Rad Summer Camps Out There, Which One Will You Be Shredding At?

It’s early April. Those powder days are all but come and gone – fleeting memories of a season’s past. Ain’t no thing; the park is firing. You’re getting your feet back under you. Heck, you might even be learning a new trick or three. You lap that silly little park chair, dial in your pretzel 2s, and hammer down  those switch sevens (both ways, ya dink! What is this, 2004?).

But just as soon as you start to feel that flow, the lifts stop. Last Chair of the season always comes too quickly. What happens when you aren’t ready to call it quits? All your friends are thinking about those #mahalovibes – you know, the beach lyfe. Sounds appealing, don’t it?

Naah. We’ve got a one-track mind, just like you. So when the local lifts stop spinning, it’s time to look elsewhere. If you’re idea of a summer well spent involves working on new tricks and skiing perfectly manicured parks, summer camp might be the best option; and lucky for you, many of these camps afford the opportunity to ski right alongside you’re favorite Full Tilt skiers.

Woodward at Copper

Elevated above and beyond the suburban sprawl of Denver – and just past the Front Range cluster lies the often overlooked Copper Mountain. By farming snow, the madmen over at Woodward At Copper create a mid-winter caliber park. Plus, Will Wesson his hosting a Takeover Session from June 4th – 10th. SIGN UP HERE!

Woodward at Tahoe

It’s no secret that Tahoe has been having an absolute megalith of a season. The snowpack is deeper than it’s been in years. What does that mean for your summer plans? Well, Boreal will have more snow than ever before to build up a solid park. And thanks to indoor facility, you’ll be able to dial in your air awareness before you even touch snow. Check Out The Details!

Momentum Ski Camp

The ever expanding Momentum Ski Camp, tucked high upon the Hortsman Glacier of Whistler, offers some of the best coaching on the planet – Tom Wallisch always makes an appearance – and arguably the best big line of all the summer camps. Meticulously groomed jumps and access to the lively summertime destination that is Whistler? Why wouldn’t you make a trip?

Camp of Champions

With a massive park, quick T-Bar Laps, and a litany of creative set-ups, Camp of Champions offers sunshine and good vibes and the solid coaching you need to step up your game. The coaching staff is stacked – and even includes your favorite off-the-grid Canadian Tuxedo Clad mustache afficianado, Rob Heule.

Windells

Mount Hood. Wy’est. The Mahalo Volcano. Whatever you may call it, that ubiquitous cinder cone has long been at the forefront of summer time shred. And No other camp has fed the flames of park skiing more than Windells. This year, thanks to the ultra-deep snowpack, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more fun place to get your fix. Plus, teen heartthrob Khai Krepela and Star Wars enthusiast Andy Parry will each host a Takeover Session. Sign Up Here!

 

Old Boot Life of Party

Not only was Charles-Eric Dolce’s old ski boot given new life and purpose by making it the life of the party, it made its way to the upper echelons of ski society… Andy Parry.

With freeskiing going to the Olympics, it seems like part of the sport is starting to take itself a little bit too seriously and forgetting about the fun part of the freeski lifestyle. So, one hungover morning while on the ski lift, I started to wonder what my ski/party crew and I could build to represent our sport and bring that vibe back as much as possible. We decided to build a beer bong in a ski boot. To build this magnificent piece of art, we had to sacrifice an old pair of ski boots, invest gigantic amounts of money in a hardware store and spend countless hours building it. In the end, when we saw the result, we knew we had something very special in our hands.

I’m asking you guys at Full Tilt for a pair of boots because I feel that your company is all about that vibe, providing high performance equipment while not taking yourself too seriously. The picture shows the boot after 8 months straight of partying, Full Tilt’s very own Andy Parry at the IF3 while claiming his prize for the Line Traveling Circus and myself drinking from it.

Remember if you think you deserve boots more than Charles (winner above), then show us why and submit your own entry at Teton Gravity. Check out all of our RECENT WINNERS!

Full Tilt and Line Traveling Circus

Andy Parry, Will Wesson and newcomer Ian Compton of the wildly popular internet episode series, LINE Traveling Circus ride on Full Tilts! We’re proud to sponsor the Circus and are stoked to watch the season filled with shenanigans!

The east coast is pretty much the same every fall. Pretty leaves, film festivals, colder weather and no snow. To remedy the snow issue join the Line Traveling Circus on a few epic journeys around the northeast of America (and a bit in Canada) to the most random places to find ways to ski.
