Phil Casabon doesn’t do many interviews…what he’s known for is style on his skis and there aren’t too many in the world today that make skiing look as good as Phil.  While he has two X Games Gold Medals in the Real Snow category and competed, that’s not what Phil is all about.  He’s about edit’s that focus creativity and style.  On the podcast we talk coming up, Henrik, Wu-Tang, plants, fungus, and a lot of skiing and style.  It’s a must listen podcast.

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!

10 Ways to Enjoy the Off Season

With the majority of resorts in the Northern Hemisphere closed down for the season, the countdown has officially started until the bullwheel spins & the 2014/2015 winter season begins! In between then & now, there’s plenty of opportunities to get out and work on evening out that goggle tan. As such, we asked Tom Wallisch to put together a list of ways to enjoy the off season.

Check out his top ten below!


1) Recover // Unfortunately this season I’ve had to spend a lot of time in the spring and summer recover from ACL reconstruction surgery. Try not to fit this activity into your schedule! Ha!

***

2) Enjoy the Sun // As soon as spring rolls around it gets even easier to get outside everyday and do something fun. After a long winter it’s just nice to be out in the sun messing around with your friends. Maybe go for a swing.

***

3) Backyard Games // One of my favorite things to do in the summer is play backyard games. Cornhole, bocce ball, horseshoes, frisbee, and so many more. Get out and enjoy the backyard!

***

4) Go to the Beach // Summer is an awesome opportunity to explore beach destinations. A beach is a very awesome place to be after an entire winter in the mountains and snow.

***

5) Skateboarding //  Even though I suck at skateboarding. A still love trying to get better every summer.

***

6) Boating // Getting out on the water in the summer is one of my favorite things to do. From enjoying some beers with friends to surfing, or wakeboarding and everything in between. Being out on a boat is just great.

***

7) Exploring // It’s awesome to get out and explore the world around you. So many natural wonders to be seen!

***

8) Watch Sports // I love getting out to pretty much any and all sporting events. Baseball, football, soccer and whatever else; just a generally good time!

***

9) Amusment Parks // Why not? Go ride some rides. Get hillbilly with it. Those coaster are fun.

***

10) Mountain Biking // Going fast, catching air and shredding through trees like you were skiing. Who doesn’t want to mountain bike?
