Hey all you USASA shredders and rippers - school is winding down and if you haven't already, you should be making plans for some hot fun in the summertime to keep your shred on. This also applies to those of you who are beyond school age - did you know there are some special seshs that are designated for the more mature snowboarders and skiers?
USASA has three awesome camp partners who can keep the progression moving forward - plus you'll have an insanely fun time while you're there, no matter which one you decide to attend. And in case you haven't heard - there's still a ton of snow out west!
High Cascade Snowboard Camp is Authorized Awesome and with its sister company, Windells, the "funnest" place on earth, skiers and snowboarders can take advantage of the best in natural snow that Mount Hood has to offer. HCSC is devoted to all things snowboarding and Windells covers the freestyle ski side, including purpose-built parks for each genre as well as some shared areas, a bag jump and 22' Superpipe. For those who haven't signed up yet, both the High Cascade and Windells camps continue to offer a $150 discount to session 1 (June 16-13) or session 6 (Aug - 12) to current USASA members.
If you were at the 2016 USASA National Championships, each camp gave away one free summer session by raffle - one at Snowbord Nationals (photo above right) and the other at Skier Nationals (photo below left). Congrats ladies and have a blast!
Woodward at Copper http://www.woodwardcopper.com is the third USASA camp partner offering up tons of fun in the sun starting in just a few weeks. The summer camp program uses Central Park which Woodward's largest summer park and is in the same location in the summer as in the winter. New this year - a surface lift is being added which will run from the bottom to the top of the park. Depending on weather conditions, it's typical that there are 3 small to medium jumps, a quarter pipe, a hip, and 20-30 features. Woodward at Copper will also have a bag jump for improving progression. Of course Woodward at Copper also features The Barn which recently underwent a half-million dollar renovation project. Woodward at Copper's first session is June 5-11. (photo below right - Central Park. At left a skier catches some air).
