On June 16th the Camp of Champions (COC) will open the largest terrain park in the world. Steve Petrie of Arena Snowparks and the park crew at Whistler Blackcomb are busy pushing mountains of snow to build a state of the art park. “Now that the pipe is in place we will begin building other features including the progressive jump lines, rail platforms, hips, quarters, and the big jump line. (Petrie)
Ride with top rank coach Simon Chamberlain on his new mushroom box painted by Nomis. “With the new rails and boxes being built this summer, we will be able to offer campers some really cool rail set ups never seen before. (Petrie) Let Mike Casanova get you sliding back-lip or Silvia Mittermuller improve your 540’s. This summer has more potential than any summer in years past. The park will include; boxes, rails (kinked, slant, curved, and flat), jumps (king size, medium, or small), a giant pipe, and a massive wall ride.
