Okemo Mountain School hosted it’s third annual Shred The Gnar Snowboard Camp in February and here is the video. Includes riding from campers; John Garoutte, Austin Rebetz, Ben Black, Anna Valentine, Otto Lichtensteiger, Charlie Berry, Joey Okesson, Abigail Schmidt, and Camille Stengel. Also includes some shredding from some of the OMS athletes as well.
Each camp has a different emphasis and includes on-snow training from 8 am-12:30 pm followed by academics from 12:30-3 pm. It’s a great opportunity for weekend athletes to experience the daily life of training at academics at a winter sports academy.
