Here in Canada, we often have moments in winter when we can't wait for the warmer months. It's funny, though, that now that summer is finally here, we already miss our boards. But here at Nikita we have the perfect solution: spend the summer snowboarding! We're excited to announce that 2009 marks our third year sponsoring the Camp of Champions in Whistler, B.C. and that the COC Nikita Mondays premier on June 22nd.

The Camp of Champions is not your normal summer camp. It's a camp in the middle of Whistler, the epic mountain town, center of the ski and snowboard universe, and host of the 2010 Olympics. COC is where people who eat, sleep and breathe snowboarding and skiing go to really get the most out of the warmer months. So, of course, Nikita is going to be there!

For the Mondays of June 22nd, June 29th, July 6th and July 13th, Nikita will play host to all sort of amazing activities, both on-hill and off. International Nikita team-rider, Vera Janssen, will be offering coaching sessions. Since March, she's been filming with Alterna Films out in Vancouver for the release of Elektro. She's also working on a documentary, Shred Day, that should be out on the internet soon. We're encouraging girls from all over to come out and learn some new tricks with Vera and our crew! Afterwards we'll be arranging a contest to find out who the coolest chickita on the mountain is. There will be styling sessions with makeup and hair, where girls can look over the Fall 2009 Nikita samples and come up with the best Nikita Chickita head-to-toe look. This is all followed by a professional photoshoot with Ashley Barker. The girls with the top 3 looks win vouchers valid in our three Whistler retailers: McCoos, Showcase and Evolution!!

While some people use their summer vacations to laze around a pool trying to beat the heat, Nikita will be at the hottest—or should we say the coolest– dream camp where all you have to do is stomp into your bindings and ride. This is the perfect opportunity for all of the active lifestyle and style loving girls out there to get up and get out to the hills and partake in all of the COC festivities. See you there.
