Winter Halfpipe Camps
Woodward at Copper is rolling out new halfpipe camps this winter, the first one being from Dec. 19 – 23, focusing on progressing individual skills in the superpipe. The Pipe Camp will offer ample Barn training time, as well as daily on-snow shred sessions, and will take place in the upgraded 22 foot superpipe, where athletes will be able to ride like the pros and reach their maximum amplitude. The upgraded pipe is now starting to become the standard for anyone, from regular Joes to all the pros, trying to master their halfpipe skills. The Woodward at Copper Winter Halfpipe Camps provide a safe and fun learning environment for all levels of pipe riders/skiers through established progressive training techniques.
