Joining these two athletes for the experience include shredding stars Celia Miller, Iris Lazz, Brody Leven, Antoine Truchon, Aspen Spora, Simon Gingras, and Maxence Parrot. 

The series will also feature legendary backcountry snowboarder and environmental advocate Jeremy Jones, as well as a number of surprise appearances from action sports’ elite.

The summer O’Neill Experience will center on the athletes as they interact with the young up-and-coming athletes attending the Camp of Champions. The world-class summer snow camp is renowned throughout the industry for its ability to support aspiring athletes as they strive to progress their skills on the slopes. It is great to see both the professional athletes and the young novices alike getting such a well rounded and fun “experience”.

“The first O’Neill Experience in Aspen was cool because fans were able to see another side of my life off the mountain, hanging out with family and friends and enjoying the moment,” said Seb Toots.  “In Whistler, our whole team will be together, so it will be really fun for our fans to see what we’re all like.  I’m excited to hang out with the camp kids, too!”

Fans can expect daily footage updates to be posted on throughout the week, along with photos and video clips promoted across O’Neill Snow’s Facebook and Twitter networks.
