New Date Announced for Sprint U.S. Grand Prix
Park City Mountain Resort has long been known as having one of the best superpipes in the world. By hosting top competitions and serving as the training ground to the best athletes in the world, the Eagle Superpipe is continuously ranked by industry publications as being the best of the best. In order to ensure the same quality halfpipe this season, we and the U.S. Ski and Snowboard Association have decided to reschedule the Sprint U.S. Grand Prix to February 1 – 2, 2013 (originally scheduled to be held December 21 – 22).

In the days leading up to their walk down the ESPYS Red Carpet, olympic gold medalists Sage Kotsenburg and Joss Christensen jetted around the country with the Woodward Team. The private jet stopped at Woodward Copper so the pros could shred the summer snow terrain park, then off to Woodward Tahoe to skateboard, bounce on tramps and high-five some campers along the way. The adventure ended in Los Angeles at the ESPYS where both athletes were nominated for Best Male U.S. Olympic Athlete. At the end of the night, Sage took home the honors adding an ESPY to his trophy collection. Go to WoodwardTV.com for more!
Camp Woodward will welcome the first-ever Olympic gold medalists in men's slopestyle to the Woodward Copper camp in Colorado on July 14th and Woodward Tahoe on July 15th. The two Olympic slopestyle gold medal winners will lend their expertise this summer to campers this summer at Camp Woodward. Campers will get the opportunity to hang out, train and grab photos with both Joss and Sage. There is still time to sign up for the summer camps. If you can't make these dates and there are always pros dropping in.
