2013 Camp Recap

Seven years strong.

The Academy Snowboards’ crew reunited for Camp Academy ‘Round 2’ and one last hurrah to cap off the snowboard season at Boreal. Campers enjoyed the forgiving spring conditions on day 1 while adding some last minute moves to their shred resumes. Besides learning board control, park skills, and demoing 2012 Academy Snowboards, campers also received lessons on board waxing and a wheat pasting tutorial to show them how to create their own ‘propaganda’.

A spring storm ripped through the mountains on day 2 dropping a foot of snow on Boreal. The coaches and campers were stoked (and surprised) to make some late season powder slashes and celebrate the end to an epic season in Tahoe!

Stay tuned for more camp stops hitting resorts across the US this coming 2011/2012 season!!
