Podium of Life Ski Academy took 11 athletes to Whistler to ski off huge jumps and land in water. This water ramp camp is a chance for athletes to practise their freestyle skiing skills in a safe environment.
Athletes ranging in age from 10 to 17 years old practised of variety of maneuvers in a variety of weather. Both male and female athletes were doing flips, both front and back. And many were doing flips combined with twists.
Some of the braver/crazy ones were going off the biggest jump and doing two huge flips prior to landing in the water. One of the members created a video about this event which can be found on the Podium of Life website and Facebook page.
The school will again be running on Mount Washington starting Dec. 9, with students in Grades 5 to 12.
How cool is it to have skiing as a daily part of the curriculum? This school really does try to meet unique needs of students.
