Snowboarders have the chance to step up their game this season when Echo Mountain hosts its second annual Sims Pro Series Camp, the season’s first chance to clinic with some of snowboarding’s most elite professional talent!  The two day weekend camp offers personalized snowboarding instruction by Sims’ pro riders Steve Fisher, Colin Langlois, and Erich Dummer as well as Echo’s own elite instructors. The registration fee includes lift tickets, two full days of training and lunch from Qdoba Mexican Grill.  Attendees are invited to check out the latest Sims product at the Sims display where Sims Pro Snowboarders will be signing autographs and giving away thousands of dollars worth of free Sims “swag” including t-shirts, hoodie sweatshirts, stickers and gifts.  Camp attendees will also be eligible for giveaways including Sims snowboards each day at the camp’s raffle.  To round out the weekend event, a jam session will be held at the end of day two for campers to showcase their new skills and win great prizes.
