All New "I Ride Park City" Freestyle Camp
Your parents have no clue why they call Tom Wallisch the "Pretzel King", they have never seen an "I Ride Park City" episode and the thought of spending all day with them on the mountain is probably horrifying. So rather than spending all week trying to convince your parents to let you go in the terrain park alone, get them to send you to camp!
"I Ride Park City" Freestyle Camp is a three-day camp for kids ages 9-15 who are intermediate skiers and snowboarders. You will learn new tricks in the park and pipe, improve your freeriding skills AND film with a GoPro and learn to edit a video in our editing lab.
I have taken part in multiple camps over the course of my snowboard career and can say first hand that these experiences were priceless. Being matched with a small group (5 to 1) of your same skill level, helps instill confidence and creates a support group cheering you on to success. Many times a kid will choose a ski or snowboard camp because they gain access to private features, built just for their level. Let's face it, Park City's terrain parks have some of the best athletes in the world skiing and riding through on a daily basis, and this can be intimidating for some. In the "I Ride Park City" Freestyle camp whether you are hitting your first jump, airing out of the Eagle Superpipe, mastering a 540 or just riding the mountain, we will find a group that's right for you.
You might be wondering what sets the camp apart from a freestyle lesson? During the course of the camp, you will be with the same coach and same group for all three days. At the end of camp you'll get a pizza party at PayDay pizza where awards will be handed out, games and more top-secret kids only stuff. Throught the camp you will film with GoPro's (with the help of coaches) and learn how to edit together a simple video to share with friends on Facebook and YouTube. The editing process will give coaches a chance to do video analysis. Sometimes seeing your mistake on the big screen is the best way to fix it.
The "I Ride Park City" Freestyle Camp has 5 sessions to choose from:
Presidents week, Wednesday to Friday, February 22 to 24
Spring breaks, Tuesday to Thursday, March 13 to 15, March 20 to 22, March 27 to 29, April 3 to 5
You can purchase the camp with lift tickets or for those who already have a season pass, without. So get your parents to send you to the "I Ride Park City" Freestyle Camp this Winter!

If you missed the U.S. Halfpipe Grand Prix on NBC, we got you covered with a handful of videos from the event.
Dan Brisse has completely changed the game of urban snowboarding conquering the heaviest rail and gap setups around with a calculated and precise approach. Brisse's "Always down" mentality resonates well with the rest of the Absinthe Films shred crew including Travis Rice, JP Solberg, Bode Merrill, and Nicolas Muller. There is nothing better than having a guy pumped to shovel jumps all day only to be equally excited to hit them!
The last and final jump in Kings Crown, 81 feet from lip to knuckle.
The step rail is brand new this season at Park City, currently set up at the top of Kings Crown.

One of the most prolific well-rounded riders apparent from his parts with Absinthe Films, his X Games Real Snow video parts, to hammers in the streets. Just listen to Travis Rice, JP Solberg and Romain de Marchi describing Bode's style and raw talent. Dan Brisse sums Bode up in describing his backside double-cork 1080 he threw down first try in Absinthe's Neverland.
