Review of Pro Ride's first backcountry camp

In March 2014, Pro Ride Snowboard Camps ran its first two-week backcounty camp in Whistler, Canada. The camp was designed to combine Pro Ride's freeride snowboard training with the Level 1 AST certification course, an introductory avalanche safety course that teaches snowboarders the necessary skills to venture into the backcountry safely.

During the first week campers spent 4 days of freeride training with the Pro Ride coaches on both Whistler and Blackcomb Mountains, in preparation for their backcountry adventures. These initial training sessions included powder hunting and technical rider improvement sessions on steeps, trees, chutes and  in-bounds hiking.

Pro Ride’s running a video contest!

Seems like these days everyone has a way to capture their favorite moments from the day. With camera’s getting smaller and smaller, and with the introduction of the ever popular GOPRO life has never been documented so well.

Over the years at camp we have noticed an ever increasing amount of lenses throughout the groups, and we want to see what you've got. Gather footage of your time on camp, pick a song that captures the moment, and put your editing skills to the test.
Here is last year winning video from Markus Kapries. Video
