Revision Skis Week at Camp of Champions
This summer marks the 28th year Camp of Champions has been running summer sessions up on the Horstman Glacier and we wereÂ stoked to be apart of it for Revision Skis Week! Sandy Boville, Chris McKeever, Sam Zahner, and myself Mike King headed up to Whistler, British Columbia for Revision Skis Week. Also cramming into the single bedroom with the crew was Liam Mckinley and Rachel Block to capture everything that went down behind the lens. Due to a lack of snow in the Pacific Northwest, the glacier has been receding at an accelerated rate. With more rocks showing and elevated temperatures, COC still managed to put together a world-class park. After the first couple laps we were quickly reminded how painful skiing is, but the young gun Sam Zahner quickly started going in to get the sessions started. After a long sunscreen filled day of skiing we packed a bus full of campers and athletes and headed to Whistler Bungee. Laughter and screams bellowed through the canyon as kids hurled themselves off a 160ft bridge. The stoke level was at an all time high. Dodge ball, skateboarding, and jumping on trampolines were some of the activities that went down after beautiful bluebird days on the glacier.Â Late nights followed by early mornings made this week one for the record books. Shout out to Ken, Shelby, and the rest of the COC staff for an awesome camp. See you next year! Words by Mike King, video by Liam McKinley, and photos by Rachel Bock.
