While filming the Advance ski movie, we spent the last season chasing snow with friends in both the backcountry and the streets.Â We had some deep days cat skiing with our friends at Fernie Wilderness Adventures, where the snow always seems to hit for us.Â Our time at Grand Targhee was great as well, but we weren’t as lucky on the weather. Other legs of the trip while filming included street skiing in Sweden and Russia, along with a bunch of other great spots across the Western states.Â Hit play, sit back, andÂ enjoy the Advance ski movie, featuring skiers Mike King, Sandy Boville, Chris McKeever, Tobias Sedlacek, Erik Pousette, Sakarias Majander, Leo Bjorklund, Douglas Kallsbo, Ian Hamilton, Danny Arnold, Sam Zahner, Jake Fagrelius, and Tanner Berg. We hope you enjoy watching ‘Advance’ as much as we did filming it.

Happy birthday Lee B! Sweet little edit from Leo BjÃ¶rklund and The Bunch!
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.
Woodward Copper Revision Skis Week
Well, it has been one hell of a week at summer camp! We had the pleasure of hanging out with a solid crew of stoked campers both on and off the snow. The park setup was prime and it was great to have such excellentÂ snow in Colorado in June. We made a lot of new friends while skiing at Woodward Copper Revision Skis week and can’t wait to ski with them again in the future. During our off time, we took advantage of the skate park and the barn. Â If you enjoy skating, you will have a great time in the skate park, which is loaded with sick features. Â Also, the trampolines and dry slope/foam pit in the barn was a great way to practice new tricks that we were looking to bring to snow. Â Whether we were on-snow, at the skate park, or kicking it in the Barn, the setup was prime and we made a bunch of new friends. Revision Skis Week came and went way too fast for our crew of Sandy Boville, Chris McKeever, Ian Hamilton, and Tanner Berg. We hope you enjoy this video thatÂ Mike Kvackay put together from our time at Woodward Copper. Â We had a great time at camp and hope that comes through in the video.
We are looking forward to future Woodward Copper Revision Skis weeks, so please reach out to us and let us know if you will be attending too. Â It’s a great way to meet and ski with like minded individuals while learning new tricks. Skiing a prime Colorado park setup in the middle of the summer is a great way to break up the offseason and be ready for the following winter.
