Camp of Champions Session A video, 2016
For countless professional snowboarders from around the globe, taking turns on the hallowed snow at Camp of Champions is a rite of passage. Nearly thirty years of Canadian pioneer Ken Achenbach’s life have been dedicated to fostering an ever-growing community of passionate snowboarders, and summer 2016 is no different. The camp’s home on Whistler’s glacier saw the exceptional talent of the Yawgoons’ Marcus and Mary Rand, as well as Brian Skorupski, The Manboys, Mark and Craig McMorris, and many more rode alongside the campers to show them some of the best things that snowboarding has to offer.
Though now down to two summer sessions, a new snowmaking facility on the glacier is allowing Camp of Champions to create and maintain one of the most impressive terrain parks in the northern hemisphere’s summer months. Quality and quantity, we like that.
