Merry Christmas - Dec Camp Video

Merry Christmas from everyone at Pro Ride. Hope everyone has a great holiday season with friends, and family. Cheers to a New Year filled with snowy good time.


Here's a little edit of what we've been up to so far this season.
 

First trampoline session of the season

The Pro Ride crew headed down to the Whistler Gymnastics Club to learn some tricks, and gain some air awarness.
The coaches at the gym guided the campers though some basic trampoline exercise, and then progressed into flipping and spinning

Camper Amit learning to frontflip.

7th Heaven open for the first campers of the season.

7th Heaven and Glacier chair just opend to finish off our first week of the season. 7th Heaven was beautiful and sunny, and Glacier had lots of pow, that had been secretly hidden away until today. Riding under the sunny skies has been amazing, but everyone is getting excited about the clouds moving in now. Sounds like there's going to be a bunch of snow for next week.

Campers Louie, Marc, Amit, Cathelijn (KT) pumped on the sun at the top of 7th.

Blackcomb Opens!

November 24th and Blackcomb mountain opens. The snow's building up here in Whistler and there's lots of exploring to do on both mountains. Rails, jumps, and pipes are being built in the parks, and it's looking like another big winter.

Here's Pro Ride coach Lisa smashing pow lines on Blackcomb's first day.


 

Whistler's open.

The most anticipated day of the year around the Pro Ride office is Whistler's opening day. And it's finally here. November. 18th, 1 week earlier then planned. With Red chair hit runs, and the Green chair park going, the day couldn't have been better. Yay! to another amazing season.

First shred day 2011

Coach Duncan couldn't wait for the mountain to open, so a small hike was in order. He went for snowshoe up Meadow mountain for his first turns of the season. After the first run of the season the hill just can't open soon enough!
 

Pro Ride Jump Day - Feb 2011

 

We’ve had 130cm of new snow come down in Whistler in the last 7 days and it doesn’t look like stopping anytime soon. On Friday the Pro Ride crew decided to make the most of it by building two kickers deep in the Whistler back country. As always the campers threw down some huge hits and nailed some bangers.

Check out these pics for a taste of jump day Pro Ride style!
