Following the luncheon, Wolf will invite attendees out to the snowskate park for a quick snowskate contest and some fun to be had by all.
Finally, Wolf will be a keynote speaker on the snowskate panel, addressing such topics as construction, maintenance and rideability of snowskate specific park jibs, how to attract to new visitors to snowskate parks at resorts, how to build and maintain snowskate parks, and much, much more.
“This is an ideal setting for us to showcase the sport of snowskating to resort owners, terrain park managers and more,” says Andy Wolf, founder and owner of Premier Snowskate. “With the captive audience of interested resort staff on-hand, we hope to educate them on the sport, the products and any misconceptions they may have. In addition, we will introduce our new Premier Resort Package that outlines an all-inclusive package needed to start a snowskate sales and rental program including a complete range of snowskates, jibs for a snowskate park and an educational training seminar.”
The 1st annual Cutter’s Camp is hosted by Ski Area Management magazine and was created to attract the best and brightest in the art of building on-hill terrain features in order to conduct how-to sessions on all aspects of design, construction and maintenance of terrain parks. Topics covered include on-hill design and cutting, grooming machines, parks and pipes, jibs and rails, competitions, liability and safety, and snowskating. The Cutter’s Camp has already sold out in its first year.
Premier Snowskate, the original snowskate manufacturer, launched in 1998.
