Summer Snowboarding on Whistler's Horstman Glacier

My adventure all started with this excellent snowboard tutorial site, Snowboard Addiction. If you ever need any tips for progressing your riding, you should 100% check them out, no matter your level — their videos taught me a ton.
I learned about a snowboarding summer camp in Whistler at Treeline Camps which is held in late June. Since it is located on the Horstman Glacier at the top of Whistler/Blackcomb, there’s snow year round.
To be honest, the thought had never even crossed my mind that something like this would exist. After three days I certainly saw a lot of progression in my riding, but I also took away a lot of specific things to work on, as well.  I’ll admit this was not the worst problem to have.
Some highlights:
  • Bears!!! There were literally black bears everywhere.
  • The drive from Vancouver to Whistler was incredibly beautiful!
  • The people. Getting to ride with some people who are as passionate, if not more passionate, than me about snowboarding was so much fun.
  • The Peak to Peak Gondola (and drinking a beer on said gondola) from Blackcomb to Whistler was an amazing ride.
