Progressing What A Summer Camp Can Be

One

of the missions of The Camp of Champions is to progress what a summer

camp can be. Another is sharing the magic of COC and Whistler with the

world. Skiing is also more fun with family and friends, so to make all

of those things a reality, we built the COC Android App so our iPhone

App would have a brother to ski with and more people could find out how

much fun we have every summer at The Camp of Champions. Now you can

check news feeds, photos, videos and contact us all from your Android

phone and or tablet, as well as from your iPhone or iPad.

ALL OUR VIDEOS IN THE PALM OF YOUR HAND

The "Video" section has all The Camp of Champions videos loaded, so instead of

carving AC/DC into the back of the bus seat while you go to school, you

can watch COC coaches and campers rip it up in the park. You can access

our interactive tour of the Whistler Bike Park through this section as

well. Instead of clicking on the map, you can scroll through the trails,

sorted alphabetically and by ability level required. Check out all the

Weekend Warrior videos and more. Just click play. The app also updates

the videos automatically when new videos are added. Never be bored

again.

ALL YOUR FAVORITE NEWS FEEDS

You can use the COC app to keep up with news feeds from Newschoolers.com, SBC Skier, 4FRNT, Pinkbike,

Transworld SNOWboarding, Whistler Blackcomb, GoPro,

Push.ca, Burton, Powder Mountain Heliskiing and Catskiing, Billabong,

Snowboard Canada, Dakine, Siberian Sandbox (the

workout program a ton of Whistler pros use to stay ahead of the game) as well as the Camp of

Champions of course. The COC app pulls each of their feeds into the app

so you can check all your favorite sites without hitting a browser.

YOU CAN DROWN IN THE PHOTO SECTION

The "Photo" section has every shot from camp loaded so you can check out

or re-live every day of camp through every single photo that our

photographers shot this summer. There are over 30,000 shots on the app.

There are enough photos for 104 hours of stoke if you check out every

photo for 5 seconds. I don't know if anyone has actually done that yet,

but feel free to try.

WHISTLER MAP

A cool feature of the COC App is that it uses the GPS feature of your

phone in the "Map" function. The "Map" has everywhere you need to know

about at COC and in Whistler already highlighted. When you come to camp

and want to know where to meet us at "The Dorm", where to go to eat, where to score the best skis deals in town,

etc, you can just click on the "Map" feature, and click on the preloaded

location pins. The entire Whistler Bike Park has been mapped for the COC app so

you can see where the best jumps are, where your favorite lines are and

of course where the GLC patio is so you can meet us for lunch. Your

location also shows up on the map so if you are in the park or in town

you can keep from getting lost, or see how far you are from another run

on A-Line. You can also see where "The Compound" is so you can meet us

to session the Big Air Bag, the mini ramp, play Halo, BBall, pool, ping

pong, hit the mulch pit and dirt jumps.

The best feature of the "Map" section is the interactive video tour of

the Whistler Bike Park. The Camp of Champions, with help from GoPro,

spent a couple weeks last summer filming every trail in The Whistler

Bike Park in HD from two angles. The footage was then synced and tagged

with a GPS point. Set up in a split screen format, you can ride with /

follow COC coaches Alan Hepburn, Xavier Raventos, Brett Tippie, Jarrett

Moore and friends Andrew Baker and Kyle McDonald through the Whistler

Bike Park. If you are riding the park you can use it to pre-ride a trail

to be safer by knowing what to expect. See the lines the pros take. Use

it to get rid of your intimidation of a certain trail or to show your

friends that are nervous about hitting the park that the Whistler Bike

Park isn't just what you see in magazines. It’s also great for those

days you can’t ride and wish you were in Whistler. Once you download the

app you can watch the videos and all our other content on your phone

from anywhere. Check out your next run - From the chair, from the GLC

patio or from the other side of the earth and get stoked for your next

day in the Whistler Bike Park.
