Session up at Camp of Champs
This summer, COC changed up their guest format to promote few riders in town under what they called, a Send It With session. I thought that was better as in the past, they had whole teams come up and noone new who was who and so a more personalized approach made it better for the coaches and campers.
Somehow I got in charge of running the ski program up there and with that comes some marketing influence atop coaching and other fun camp admin stuff. The marketing side allows me to invite the riders I want to chill with on the hill so this past summer, I invited Chris Benchetler and Andy Mahre (Sessions homies) to come up and shred for the kids. Andy arrived on the 3rd session and Benny came up on the last one.
Both of these boyz have the BC on lock and so jumping was all their focus. I attempted to get Benny to get rails and even though he acts like thats his past, he's still got it. (Come on Chris, you know that clutch 2sev on / out moment felt good!!) But outside the shreddin, it was rad to hang with these guys off the hill and catch up when the stress of tracking storms and "getting the shot" is done for the year.
Check out a couple vids that came out with us shreddin:
