Media Contact: Jon Slaughter Boreal Mountain Resort 530.426.3666 x184 jons@borealski.com IMMEDIATE RELEASE May 12, 2011 Summer Progression: June Ski/Snowboard Camp Donner Summit, CA, (May 12, 2011) – This June, Boreal Mountain Resort will be hosting a 5-day, on-snow, ski and snowboard camp. Skiers and riders looking to extend their winter can take advantage of a lift-accessed terrain park, June 20 – 24, 2011. Summer campers can expect Boreal’s industry recognized terrain parks including a slew of jumps and jibs, a Superpipe and a BagJump®, plus coaching and progression training. A high-caliber on-snow camp, normally reserved for the northwest glaciers of the US and Canada, can be hosted in Northern California this summer thanks to this winters’ record-setting snowfall. Over 770 inches of snow fell during the 2010/2011 season with 30% falling late in the season (after March 1st). Campers will be given professional instruction from the area’s top ski and snowboard coaches, led by Dylan Omlin, USSA Coach of the Year. Coaches will split the campers into groups of 6 or less, allowing for plenty of one-on-one interaction. “Our goal is to offer a fun, affordable and progressive camp where kids can build their life-long skills,” stated Jon Slaughter, Marketing Director. “We can provide a camp with all the same bells and whistles as the Mt. Hood summer camps, but at a third of the price,” he added. “Plus, you can save on travel costs as Boreal is close to home.” Campers and coaches alike will have the chance to enjoy a variety of jumps, rails and boxes in Boreal’s terrain park. “The huge snowfall this season has allowed us to take our Summer Shred to a new level”, said Eric Rosenwald, Boreal Terrain Park Manager. “We have stockpiled enough snow ensuring we can build a legit terrain park in June,” he continued. Boreal’s Superpipe will also be open for those campers looking to progress their skills on the vertical walls of Boreal’s 18ft. pipe. In addition, all campers will have the chance to session Boreal’s newest training tool, the BagJump®. BagJump is considered the most state of the art, action sports training device in the world. It is an enormous 50’x50’ cushion for your landing rather than a snow surface; designed to eliminate the “trampoline effect” absorbing impacts with maximum softness when learning and perfecting air maneuvers. Boreal’s 5-day summer camp, includes professional instruction, lift tickets and lunch daily for a only $499, until June 1st. After June 1st campers can still join for a cost of $599.
