We have a special week for all adult (19+) snowboarders looking to build their skills this summer. Our all inclusive camp will be the best week of your summer.
We have loads of snowboarding time for the 6 on mountain days. You can get on the hill as early as 8:30am and ride till 3pm! Thats over 6 hours of park riding every day!
After snowboarding you'll be able to increase your bag of tricks when we take you to the Bounce Trampoline Gym. Your coach will walk you through the basics from 180's, 360's, back flips and any other trick you want to take to the snow.
Find it hard to visualize your tricks or know what your bodies doing on your snowboard? Well we do video analysis. You'll get to see yourself doing tricks in the park and get your movement broken down by our professional coaches so that you can make the correct changes to nail the tricks you want to learn.
So thinking about snowboarding this summer but you're not sure if you're ready? Drop us a line and we'll be happy to answer any questions you might have.
Hope we see you soon!
So as we all know Mother Nature has not been so kind to us over the last few winters here in Whistler, British Columbia. Well not just Whistler but the whole of Western North America (thank god we're not in Cali).
Luckily this season she has blessed us with the awesome powder days we have grown to love. With over 6m (18ft) of snow to date, the park this summer is going to be really fun in the same fantastic progressive style as always.
With the short comings of the last 2 seasons, Whistler Backcomb has stepped up to the plate and installed snowmaking on the Horstman Glacier. The snowmaking heads and Whistler Backcomb managers have been running a pilot project consisting of 4 different automated tower snow guns. The initial thought was to line the ridge of the glacier with 26 of the best performing snow gun out of the pilot test.
As it goes, getting the right wind direction, temperatures and making the right snow on the steep terrain has proven to be a bit of an issue. The planned tower snow guns have since been shut down in exchange for some hard working forward thinking individuals made up of Whistler Blackcomb's finest snowmakers. The snowmaking team has been working around the clock to fill in a large recess in the upper section of the t-bar. They have proven that with the help of natural snow, snowmaking does really help the situation. While it may have a few factors that need to line up, snowmaking on the Horseman Glacier is a success.
So if you're out and about smashing pow on 7th Heaven, or your sitting on the patio at the Horstman Hut enjoying a beer and happen to see a Snow maker, say hi, ask some questions or at least let them know that the long hours they do are great for everyone.
This thing looks amazing. I'm not sure that I can wait a year.

So as you've probably noticed, skiing and snowboarding has changed in some dramatic ways since The Dave Murray camp started. Dave Murray, the "Crazy Canuck" was a hero and legend of his time, building the camp to glory in it's early years.
Some time ago the Dave Murray summer camp was handed on to a new generation, a snowboarder by the Name of Greg Daniels. Greg started the Whistler Summer Snowboard Camp, it used the same private park space and all the facilities that the Dave Murray Camp did. Greg essentially started a snowboarding and skiing camp running under 2 names.
As the years went on, people got old and so did the names.
Now we are here, in this current day and age. It's time that the summer ski and snowboard camps that we run and love running got with the times as well. That's why we have renamed the freestyle component of the camps to Treeline Camps. Check out the camp packages here.
Don't distress though, you can still find the awesome Dave Murray Race Camp at davemurrayskiracing.com
Here's to new beginnings!
