Snowmaking on Whistler's Horstman Glacier

This coming winter season, Whistler Blackcomb will conduct a new snowmaking pilot project aimed at preserving the Horstman Glacier on Blackcomb Mountain. The pilot project will involve the testing of four low-energy consumption snowmaking guns in the Horstman Hut area to determine if a full-scale snowmaking system is an option to prevent further recession of the Horstman Glacier.

GoSnow App Launched

A huge congrats to Camper Sean Bellerby who just launched an exciting new app for iOS called GoSnow.  

Sunny Park Laps for our Freestyle Campers

With the early arrival of Spring like conditions up on Whistler Blackcomb, our campers have switched up hiking steep lines to hiking the abundance of boxes rails and jumps that are on offer here in the freestyle terrain garden.

Right from the beginner to the advanced camp groups, everyone has been progressing so fast, which is no surprise given the motivation, determination and overall happy and supportive vibe of our crew. We’ve had campers landing their first ever box slides, hitting jumps and hips for the first time and landing clean 180 and 360 spins. Our advanced campers have also stepped it up adding some technical big spins on the jumps, whether they’re spinning backside, frontside or off the toes, to their ever growing bag of tricks.

Spotlight on Coach Lisa Corcoran

This month's spotlight is on Lisa Corcoran, Pro Ride Coach and owner of Treeline Summer Camps.  Lisa has been riding with Pro Ride for 8 years now and is a super fun and not to forget amazing all-around female rider.  With qualifications including CASI Level 3 & Park instructor, Level 1, 2 & Park Evaluator, CSF Comp-Dev Coach, NCCP B and AST 1, we are lucky to have her on the team.  

As Lisa gears up to a busy summer riding and coaching on the glacier we got together with her for a little Q & A.  

Q.  Who and what inspired you to start snowboarding?
