Momentum Ski Camps 2013
For 21 years we have been operating summer ski camps on the Blackcomb Glacier, on top of the world here in Whistler, Canada, home of the 2010 Winter Olympics. Over this time we have been a big part of the wild evolution of skiing. From twister spread to double cork 12′s, Freestyle skiing today is alive with a vengeance and summer camp is where much of this innovation was conceived. Halfpipe and Slopestyle have now joined Moguls on the 2014 Olympic roster, so Momentum is perfectly poised to help coach the next generation of skiing stars. Many national and provincial teams come to Momentum each summer to perfect their skills and inspire the up and coming generation. Whether you are an aspiring competitor or a highly motivated recreational skier we continue to lead and feed the sport in the safest manner with perpetual enthusiasm, inspired from coach to athlete.
Our focus since the camp’s inception has been to make sure that when you come to Momentum you have one of your best life experiences and more importantly, leave a much better skier then when you arrived. Our record and list of former campers who have gone on to become the new best skiers in the world is unmatched by any camp. Our formula is simple, we use the best skiers in the world to teach you. This has become easier over the years as many of our coaches, who are now Olympians, World Cup Skiers and Top Pros, were former campers themselves and understand what it takes to create an unforgettable camp experience. Key to our and your success is that the coaches don’t just ride… they teach, motivate and inspire!

Over the years as the camp has grown, our terrain has expended substantially, we now occupy 5 lanes of Slopestyle and Mogul terrain spanning both sides of the Showcase T-bar as well as an exclusive Halfpipe and 2 giant airbags. This allows us to provide a much better overall skiing experience, offering the largest variety of terrain of any camp. We have room now to build in real progression from small 5 foot jumps up to our 80′ step up, voted the best jump on the glacier. See also our iconic 16′ x 32′ Wallride and the progressive rail + mogul park. This summer we will again have two huge airbags, allowing campers to train new tricks safely before trying them on snow. By nature of our location on the Showcase T-bar we also have the shortest lift lines and fastest turnaround time on the glacier.
Off the glacier, we have done our best to make sure you experience the most of Whistler in comfort and convenience. Our luxury hotel accommodation is located in the heart of Whistler Village, along with an all-inclusive meal plan featuring, breakfast, juice break, all-you-can-eat lunch and a dine-around dinner plan that takes you to a different restaurant in the village each night, all within walking distance of our hotel.
Whistler is not only a ski resort, but a 4 season resort with almost too many activities for us to choose from. We offer a huge choice of off-hill afternoon activities, all included in the Full Package camp price from wakeboarding, waterramping, paintball, trampoline, to mountain biking, climbing, sailing, yoga, etc…etc… Since there is so much to see and do in Whistler, we’ve added an extra day at camp off snow (Sessions 3-5), so you can truly enjoy this special place.
We are planning our 2013 sessions and look forward to providing another fun-filled, action packed, progressive camp. I hope you will be able to join us, because I know you will have the time of your life and will leave a much improved and more motivated skier.
