April 28th, 2010 ~ Whistler, BC ~
A big part of the fun of doing The Camp of Champions is progressing what a summer camp should be. The other fun part of COC is sharing the magic of Whistler with the world. To make both of those things a reality we are launching the COC iPhone App. Check news feeds, photos and videos all from your iPhone. The app was built by Adam Sullovey, one of our super talented friends, who makes ones and zeros into magic.
It’s been about 8 months in the making and after more than a few “Hey, wouldn’t it be cool if it did this” changes and a couple or three “Hey, you need to change this” from Apple to get the final approval for the app, the app has finally launched today in the Apple App Store. The app is free and you can use it to keep up with news feeds from Transworld SNOWboarding.com, WhistlerBlackcomb.com as well as the Camp of Champions.
There are sections on the app where you can check out all the COC videos and photos. The app will update every time we add new content. As we add new photos and videos every day when camp is on, it will be a great way to keep your riding stoke when you are wishing you were in Whistler instead of sitting on the bus. It will also keep you stoked on the cross country drive or plane ride to camp.
A big part of the COC App uses the GPS feature of the iPhone in a map feature that has everywhere you need to know about in Whistler loaded and locked down. When you come to camp and want to know where to meet us at “The Dorm” where to go to eat, where’s the skatepark, or see where the World’s largest private summer park is on a map, you can just click on the “Maps” feature. We will be adding more spots as we get closer to camp and as the park gets built. Eventually we will have all of Whistler mapped on the COC app so you can see where all our favorite lines are and of course where the “The Dorm” is. You can also see where “The Compound” is so you can meet us to session our the miniramp.
Type “Camp of Champions” into the iPhone App Store search field.
Download it and Get Stoked.
The Camp of Champions, now in its 22nd summer, uses the amazing combination of top pro riders as coaches, the world’s largest private terrain park, daily Pro Photo Shoots® with video and still photographers and so much more to make a camp experience that can’t be beat. With “The Compound”, our 20,000 square foot hospitality area filled with the ping pong tables, pool tables, foosball, couches, a 40 foot wide mini ramp and Rockband on a 2600 watt sound system, there is no better place to relax after an insane day in the park. We run with all settings cranked to 11 all summer. With the world’s largest terrain park as your home, you will learn so much in your time with us that it will feel like you just got an extra season of riding in just a week.
