Day one at the COC compound. Pre Sunburns, concussions and separated shoulders.
Words & Captions: JP Walker
The Tripod broke the ice on opening week at Camp of Champions in Whistler last week. It was an awesome time as usual with a few sunny days and lots of snow. Our days were filled with traveling up and down the mountain and shredding the glacier. The evenings were reserved for mini ramp sessions, paintball, trampoline and competitive bump and sting-pong tournaments. We stayed close to the COC compound in Staff housing and I got a new perspective on Whistler living life behind the wall. Simon and Joe killed it on the snow. Maximum respect to all the campers that came to our session. See you next year and check out more at therealjp.com.
On this rare occasion Joe ops for the breasts instead of the wings.
Life behind the walls. My celly Simon and I bunk up before lights out in 6 block.
The Tripod ice grilling skiers at the bottom of backcomb before we tool up.
It's hard to think up all these witty captions, especially about yourself. Somehow the tannest man in snowboarding has a sunscreen sponsor. Good enough?
Is Joe contemplating next years rail tricks to try on the glacier? No, just what kind of beer to get later.
Simon still grillin'

A wise man once told me there is something better than an Alexander Keith's... and that's a lot of Alexander Keith's. Joe has become wiser in his old age.

Simon hooks up a camper with his next year sig boot after feeling bad for hitting him with a water ballon in the chest. The dude deserved it. The water ballon that is.
A camper from Copenhagen scored a new StepChild board. Chi Guy, Simon and I signed it up.
