The beloved Momentum Ski Camps located on the Blackcomb Glacier celebrates 20 years this season. Happy 20th Anniversary Momentum! 

Momentum is excited for their anniversary and is gearing up to kick off this season on June 17. If you are not familiar with Momentum Ski Camps, their formula is simple. They, “use the best skiers in the world to teach you.” Camp Founder/Director and 2 time Olympian and World Cup Medalist John Smart says, “This has become easier over the years as many of our coaches, who are now Olympians, World Cup Skiers and top pros, were former campers themselves and understand what it takes to create an unforgettable camp experience. Key to our and your success is that the coaches don’t just ride… they teach, motivate and inspire!”

Former campers include such Ski Channel Snow Babes Sarah Burke and Grete Eliassen, and mogul Olympic winners Alex Bilodeau and Dale Begg- Smith. Sarah Burke (pictured left) will be on the coaching roster for Girls Week during Session 3, along with other coaches including fellow alumni Alex Bilodeau, Colby James West, Alex Schlopy and Mike Douglas to name a few for their other sessions.

“Looking back it’s been amazing to play a big part in the evolution of the sport. We started the camp the very first year moguls was an Olympic event, and have been at the forefront of the new school movement from the beginning, encouraging the energy and innovation of the next generation. Our terrain park is constantly evolving to help fuel this progression,” said Smart.
