Camp of Champions opened its gates to over 200 campers this last weekend and just in time the Canadian sun decided to light up the massive park on Blackcomb glacier.
The kids invaded Whistler to be coached by pro snowboarders Silli Mittermueller, Chris Dufficy, Chad Otterstrom, Matt Belzile, and many more!
The first day I came up I wasn’t sure whether I would even know anybody up there. But right away I ran into the Pirates, Bataleon and Transworld crews who showed up to get the camp started in the right fashion: Ride Hard – Party Hard !!
The Pirates brought over the teaser for their new movie “Overseas”. Me still driving the RV aka the Pirate Ship went to pick up about 10 rowdy Pirates and shipped them over to the Camp where the campers would be honored with its very first showing as well as a bunch of Pirate gear and stickers!!
All in all it basically feels like Euro-Camp over here right now. My Deeluxe team buddy Elias Elhardt is working fence crew and I get to hang out with him for the next few weeks. Between his fence duties he has been seen throwing down hard in the park – no surprise to whoever knows him…
The Bataleon guys have also been making quite the Euro-Appearance – slaying it hard on and off the hill. Their TM Eric has been doing a great job at staying on top of this partying and shredding Eurobunch, which includes such ladymen as Gulli Gudmundsson, Andy Gidlund, Kalle Ohlson, and Tyler Chorlton. He needs to be careful when letting them use his phone though because it is getting confusing about which girls answer back to which team riders…
A great start into the summer!!!!!
