The Revy SS Camp

The Revy SS Camp Like a bat out of hell, blind and on fire, I come barreling out of the trees of Vertigo Ridge with Al at the helm. We swing it around in time to watch the disciples pick their way through the final steep treed section of the run. It ain't pretty, the run that is. The skiing is Ace's though. It needs to be, it's on a few inches of warm blown in fresh, on top of a nice spring crust that's been softened ever so slightly. It's the graduation run of The Revy Sit Ski Camp. Considering it's hard to tell who's a coach and who's a camper as they leapfrog their way down, I'd say the campers surprised themselves with how far they've come in three days.

Revelstoke ski camp in the works!

Revelstoke ski camp in the works!So our skiing plans have changed a little bit this year. We are unfortunately not going to be running a Make Their Day event. We are now going to be running an intermediate free skiing camp for athletes with a physical disability at RMR in Revelstoke this March!
