SNOWBOARDER Magazine Week at Woodward Tahoe
A few weeks ago, the wonderful people at Woodward Tahoe hit up SNOWBOARDER Magazine about the possibility of hosting a full week of camp at Boreal Mountain, California, and last week, the staff of SNOWBOARDER packed a condo at Woodward Tahoe with Desiree Melancon, Pat Moore, Scott Blum, Justin Keniston, Stefi Luxton and Mike Ravelson for a full week of shredding, swimming, SUPing, skating and general summertime activities in order to thaw the cold frost of winter off of our bones.
For those of you that have never been to a Woodward summer snowboard camp, they are absolutely, insanely fun. And for the doubters that don't believe that there's still snow on the hill in June, think again, because the staff of Woodward and Boreal have a lane of snow packed with jumps, jibs and transition that will blow your mind.
The Night Shoot:
For a week straight, we lapped all day, skated at night, participated in camper activities like tie-dyeing and we even got to sneak in a sunset shoot with the invited riders, as well as Tahoe elite, like the one and only Danny Davis. The parking lot around the camp soon turned into a full on shanty town consisting of old trucks, new subarus, and Christian Connor’s motorcycle. Hans Mindnich, Nick Geisen, Nick Russell, Naima Antolin, Lane Knaack, Brady Lem, Tim Humphreys, Harrison Gordon, Mike Burton, Drayden Gardner, Storm Rowe, Keegan Hosefros, Matt Shaffer, Christine Savage, Skyler Gallardo, Austin Squire, Brock Nielsen, and Blake Kehoe were all along for the ride and we couldn’t be more stoked to have seen them.
It was a long and eventful week and we cannot wait to do it again next summer already. Check out the photos to see what went down on the hill, and enjoy your summer, kiddos. It'll be snowing again soon enough, so have some fun in the sun while it's up in the sky. A huge thanks to Mizzl, Matt Peterson, Missy Konig, Tucker Norred, and the rest of Woodward staff for building, hosting, and putting on such an awesome camp!
