I disagree. I have no hopes of ever going pro, and I still think it was an awesome week. What better way to spend a week during the summer than to go skiing? I would guess that the majority of kids there were going because it's "the funnest place on earth," they love going skiing or snowboarding and not because they dreamt of going pro. That said, there is some really amazing talent there too.
I know this was made for young snowboarders, but this video gives you some idea of what Windells and hood is like during the summer.
