What another amazing session it was at Momentum!
Session 2 saw a few more coaches added to the roster, including Tom Wallisch, Gus Kenworthy, Mikael Kingsbury, Rory Bushfield, Paul 'B-Paul' Bergeron, Riley Leboe, and Phil Marquis, who joined TJ Schiller, James ‘Woodsy’ Woods, Alexi Godbout, Mike Henitiuk, Chelsea Henitiuk, Andrew Clough, Tami Bradley and the rest of the team!
Gus Kenworthy, James ‘Woodsy’ Woods, Tom Wallisch, Jeff Schmuck and Charlie Grinnell with his 2 RED cameras converged on the camp office at the start of Session 2.

...as Gus Kenworthy demonstrates on the hockey stick rail.
James ‘Woodsy’ Wood on the s-coaster rail...the park just keeps getting better!
The mogul lane is tight and perfect as usual!
Tom Wallisch was stoked on how fast campers and coaches can hot lap the park – mileage is one of the keys to learning!
Look Mom...no line!
With the best halfpipe training facility in the world right now, the Canadian, Russian, New Zealand, British, and Belarus National Teams have converged on Momentum for training.
It’s no wonder we’ve had snowboard national teams ask to train at Momentum as well, as other camps lack such key freestyle training tools.
The campers have been shredding like no other.
Richard Sibley, one of the older camper during Session 2 (31 years old) – showed he still has it with a huge superman front flip on the 75-foot stepover!
Other campers used the airbag to work on their tricks – one of the many safe training tools at Momentum.
Rails are always fun!
Airing out of a 22-foot pipe is always an exhilarating experience!
B-Paul gives a pep talk to his camper.
Activities – all free and with your coaches. TJ Schiller showing how to crush a ball.
Here Gus Kenworthy shows us he can stand at a 45 degree angle without falling. Both the campers and Tom were impressed!
We’ve had a ton of campers express how much they’ve been enjoying the restaurants each night! Proper nutrition is cool!
Both the coaches and campers have also been really enjoying the hotel, The Blackcomb Lodge & Spa, which has a trampoline out front! PS: Superman’s true identity is Mikael Kingsbury
Tom Wallisch doing video reviews with his campers...
Awards and prizes are always a nice way to wrap up an awesome week of skiing!
Some campers were extra stoked!
Sardines & Onions for a GoPro, Oakley goggles and Skullcandy headphones!
The challenge was set, and the campers diligently battled bite after bite, until Vincent Kelly finished every last bite!
Head coach Mauro Nunez’s dog Daisy wondering why the campers are so crazy.
In the spring Tom Wallisch and Momentum created an online course for students to enter for their chance to win a free session at Momentum. The top student ended up being Jarod Thornton, who not only won a free session to Momentum, he was also hooked up with a GoPro and Skullcandy swag pack!
Jarod also got to interview his idol.
That’s all for now from Whistler Blackcomb. Session 3 has just wrapped up, so stay tuned for more updates, but in the meantime, enjoy the newly released Session 2 edit...
