Going through powder withdrawals? Get your fix with Episode 4 of Germination at Whistler! This summer, Epic Planks riders met up with Camp of Champions head filmer Mike Kvackay to ride the glacier at Whistler Blackcomb. Time was spent in the Camp of Champions world-class terrain park along with Whistler Blackcomb’s public park.  From rails to jumps, watch skiers like Mike King, Ian Hamilton, Sam Zahner, Danny Arnold and Tommi Ollikainen enjoy the sunny mountain conditions of Canada. Spending the summer in Whistler helped all of the riders progress and prepare for next season.

Ian Hamilton explained, “I had a bunch of tricks on my mind that I didn’t do this winter, so the goal was to get all those on lock for next season.” Not only was it a time of progression, but also a time of chilling and having fun.  “Chilling in Whistler with the boys was the highlight of my summer for sure,” said Ian.
