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!

FT Athletes Fill Roster Of X Games Real Street

Just over a week ago, the list of invited athletes for X Games Real Street video competition was announced and it is stacked – if we do say so ourselves!

With the announcement coming from athlete social accounts and Newschoolers, it’s clear to see that FT athletes will be well represented.

Returning to the competition after taking top spots in last year’s contest are none other than Will Wesson and Tom Wallisch, who claimed the X Games Gold Medal and People’s choice respectively.

Will Wesson’s Winning 2016 Entry

Tom Wallisch’s 2016 Entry

Joining them from the FT roster will be Park City’s Khai Krepela and one half of the most creative duo in freeskiing – none other than Henrik Harlaut! Rounding out the rest of the competition will be Magnus Graner & LJ Strenio who certainly will put together banger segments as well which means this might be one of the most entertaining video series yet!

AIT: Stick To Your Guns


MORE ON THE PROJECT:

It’s sort of like a dream right? Live in the place you grew up with a handful of your best friends and ski every single day. It’s tough to convince yourself that this is real life, or even a possibility. This life was never planned – and it was certainly unexpected to end up back where it all started, but not a surprise. With another year in the bag exploring areas from the past and re-discovering new places to roam in the backcountry, there’s no doubt in my mind I’m right where I want to be.

I’m proud of where I am from and proud to share the dream with so many close close friends. Thank you Khai and LJ for coming to my make-believe world and making AIT a reality. Thanks to Bobby Brown who made the entire Montana trip come to life, you are a true friend and I am grateful for the support you’ve given. And the biggest thank you of all to Jake Strassman – the creative overlord of all we do, AIT will have a lasting presence in skiing because of the heart you have put into it.
