Session three at Ohio Dreams kicked off with beautiful weather, and a small group of very dedicated and talented skiers in attendance. After a Sunday evening of fun on Ohio Dreams' gigantic Slip N Fly with all of the other campers, the skiers wasted no time charging the ramps on Monday morning bright and early.

One thing we get a lot of at Ohio Dreams is dual sport athletes, because we are one of the only camps where you can get instruction in multiple sports in one day. Because winter only lasts half the year in most places, the skiers tend to be especially talented in other sports. Camper Patrick was a great skateboarder and spent all of his down time in the Ohio Dreams skateparks.
