Posted By: The Ski Channel on July 27, 2010 10:58 am

Now that Woodward at Copper’s summer sessions are nearly over for the summer, Woodward has announced the late summer and early fall hours for The Barn, a 20,000 sq. ft. Copper campus facility, giving participants access to Snowflex® jumps, foam pits, a spring floor, fly-bed trampolines and indoor skateboard features.

Just in time for the off-season leading up to winter, Woodward at Copper has announced starting August 5 the Barn is open Thursdays through Sundays, for the 2, 4 and 6 p.m. One Hit Wonder, Drop-In Sessions, Barn Privates, and Skate/BMX only sessions, as well as Saturdays & Sundays for Barn Only Camp Days. After Labor Day, the Barn will be open each day for 2, 4 and 6 p.m One Hit Wonder, Drop-In Sessions, Barn Privates and Skate/BMX only sessions, while still offering the Barn Only Camp Days on Saturdays and Sundays.

The One Hit Wonder is a mandatory, one-time, introductory session that helps participants become comfortable with all the unique equipment in The Barn, as well as teaching participants the key techniques to help progress faster and safer than ever before. Once a One Hit Wonder has been taken successfully, guests are all good to participate in the Drop-In Sessions, an hour and 45 minutes of whatever you want to learn – working on individual skills and focusing training on the trampolines, jump line, rail garden, quarter pipe, log jib, spring floor or any of the skate features…basically, the whole Barn is at your disposal!

For the best deal, pick up a 5- or 10-Punch Pass for Drop-In Sessions, valid through April 24, 2011. Drop-In sessions are available Aug. 5 – Sept. 5, every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. After Labor Day, Sept. 6, through the start of winter season in early November, Drop-In Sessions are available 7 days a week.

Barn Private Lessons are one-on-one with a Woodward at Copper coach in The Barn. What you will work on during the lesson is completely up to you, as the staff is trained to teach beginner techniques to the most advanced tricks. NOTE: Participants must complete a One Hit Wonder session prior to signing up for a Barn Private Lesson. Barn Private Lessons are available Aug 5 – Sept 5, at Noon, 2, 4 and 6 p.m., every Thursday through Sunday, and daily at the same times after Labor Day.

In addition, Woodward at Copper will be offering the Barn Only Camp Day, where skiers and riders will work with Woodward at Copper coaches to improve their skills and learn new tricks inside The Barn using the tramps, foam pits, Snowflex® ramps and other features. This is a great opportunity for shredders to experience everything the Barn has to offer and learn a few new tricks before next winter season, while not having to worry about getting your “ski legs” back for the first couple months of winter. The great thing about the Camp Day is that the participant’s choose what they want to learn and how much time is spent on any given part of The Barn – skating the bowls or ramps, jumping on the tramps, flipping on the spring floors, learning double flips off the Snowflex jumps or sliding rails all day long. Barn Only Camp Days are offered on Saturdays and Sundays Aug. 7 – Sept. 5, from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m.
