Epic Snowmobiling day trip for Pro Ride Campers!

The hugely anticipated snowmobiling day trip went down yesterday for our longstay campers, as they ripped around Whistler's beautiful surrounding mountains with our tour guides The Adventure Group based out in Cougar Mountain. Snowmobiling has to be up there as one of the most thrilling activities to experience and it certainly got the adrenaline pumping for our campers yesterday, wizzing around on the scenic cat tracks. Cougar mountain, famous for its diverse terrain, never dissapoints, even in a season like this where the snowfall has been below par. Thanks to our expert guides, our campers were quickly brought up to speed in learning how to maneouvre their snowmobiles, body positioning, turn smoothly and control their speed. 

By the afternoon our crew were riding around like pro's, xgames 2015 snowmobiling longjump here we come?!!

"Steep and Deep" - Fresh snow this Week!

Powder hikes, steeps, deep tree runs and sunny park laps were the call of duty this week for our January campers. All thanks to the storm that rolled in last weekend, we were gifted with another 50cm of fresh snow. We couldn't hide the smiles... no matter how much our legs were burning!

December - The first 4 weeks

I caught a first glimpse of what Whistler has to offer back in June with Pro Ride coaches Duncan and Lisa on Summer Camp, I fell for both the place and the crew instantly, and grasped the first opportunity to pack up my life for winter in the mountains.  Now a month into a 12-week camp and Whistler is home.
