More from Jamal, Camp Blog 2014/15 - #2

One month on, and while some things have changed, the snow-based dream chasing remains the same.

We’ve had waves of new Pro riders coming through the house and lots of friends from home visiting, so no one has been short of people to play out with. A few have moved on and are sorely missed already. Calum (no longer taco record holder, but still drinking champion) and The Matrix have just missioned it back to the southern hemisphere to start uni and “get back on the mangle horse”, so I do feel a bit like I’ve been riding with a limb missing lately.

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!

Jamal Camp Blog 2014/15 - #1

Taking an extended break from work life, Camper Jamal Abbasi, 32 years from the UK is in Whistler on a 12 Week Snowboard instructcor Course having the trip of a life time and shares a little about his trip on Pro Ride in Whistler. 

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.
