Woodward, PA (May 29, 2014) – Woodward is thrilled to welcome the first-ever Olympic gold medalist in men's snowboard slopestyle to camp this summer as Sage Kotsenburg hits Woodward Copper July 14-15 and Woodward Tahoe July 16-17. Campers will get the opportunity to hang out, train and grab photo ops with the Olympian.
Kotsenburg made history taking the gold in men’s slopestyle this year at its debut in the Winter Olympic Games in Sochi. The GoPro athlete, Park City local and "I Ride Park City" All Stars team member has been on a crazy ride since winning the gold medal. He's been on a Wheaties box, early morning talk shows, late-night television, landed in the pages of Rolling Stone and his next stop is camp at Woodward.
"We are stoked to host Sage to camp this summer," said Pheobe Mills, Director of Woodward Tahoe and a snowboarding halfpipe and slopestyle judge at this year's Olympics. "After his groundbreaking gold- medal performance at the 2014 Winter Olympic Games, he is sure to be an inspiration for our campers and will no doubt exude his love and passion for snowboarding with everyone at camp."
There is still time to sign up to join Sage at camp in July. If you can't make these dates, there are always pros dropping in. To register or find out more information visit: woodwardatcopper.com or woodwardtahoe.com
