Momentum 2018 Coaches Lineup
04.23.2018 Whistler, B.C.
Spring has sprung, and while that might mean your home mountain is closing it also means that summer camp is right around the corner. For Slvsh, that means heading back once again to Momentum Camps in Whistler. This summer is sure to be a banger with a stacked lineup of coaches, and after a ridiculous 40+ ft of snow this winter, a snowpack that’s stacked even deeper. Slvsh games will be running all summer long, so come ride with some of the biggest names in skiing, make new friends, and tick off a bunch of new tricks from your bucket list.
Worried about scoring your favourite pro as your coach? Don’t!- campers have the opportunity to work with a new coach each day, meaning you’ll get to hang with your favourites and learn from a variety of different styles and perspectives.
Sandy Boville, head coach - All five sessions
This year’s coaching head-honcho not only slays the park, but is also known for being Vin Diesel’s stunt double in the latest Triple X movie. He’ll be bringing the hype and helping campers up their park game all summer long. Sandy has appeared in several Level 1 Productions films including Habit and Pleasure and has taken back to back wins at the infamous Rails to Riches contest.
Joss Christensen - Session 4 + 5
Former camper and Slvsh’s own Joss Christensen will be on-hand at Momentum both as a coach, and behind the lense filming games. The 2014 Olympic Slopestyle gold medalist is hyped to get back on the glacier to teach the next generation his craft and to stack more banger summer Slvsh games.
Woodsy - Session 3 + 4
After shredding the glacier as a camper, the eternally stoked James Woodsy Woods returns for another summer at Momentum. Woodsy, who also happens to be one of Slvsh’s all-time favorite referees, spends his winters constantly contending for the top steps of the podium at freeskiing’s biggest contests. He’s got big tech rail tricks and a trademark bag of unique aerial grabs and maneuvers. Often referred to as the friendliest guy in freeskiing, Woodsy will make every day on the hill one to remember.
Evan McEachran - Session 3 + 4
A podium-quality run at the 2018 Olympics was no surprise to skiers that have followed Evan McEachren over the years. The Oakville, Ontario native and former Momentum camper has a deep quiver of big tricks and a casual style that makes every spin, flip and grab look effortless. He also played in one of the best Slvsh games ever. Evan can show you how to do almost any trick you can think of, and make it look good, too. If you need proof then check his Instabanger from the glacier last summer.
Khai Krepela - Session 3
Khai needs little introduction, the rail god is back. Not much is certain in skiing, but amazing film segments year after year have become the regular for Khai, with technical rail tricks on high consequence street features as his staples. Work with Khai as your coach, and maybe some of his rail wizardry will wear off on you.
Will Wesson - Session 3
Speaking of rail wizardry, Line teammade and Travelling Circus OG Will Wesson will also be back for Session 3. The X Games Real Ski champion is one of the smoothest rail skiers of all time. Between him and Khai, campers will be KFeding, surface swapping, and pretzeling left and right.
Magnus Graner - Session 4 + 5
Magnus has broken the mold for what style means and how park skiers ski. He’s got an uncanny technical skillset and a totally unique “swervy” style, that’s taken fire around the ski world. Magnus can help show you how to do you. Get steezy with Magnus Session 4 and 5.
Fabian Bosch - Session 3 + 4
There are no shortage of accolades to show how sick of a skier Fabian Bosch is. To name a few, he’s an X Games gold and silver medalist, and slopestyle world champion. The Swiss Bosch has crazy air awareness, leading to some wild jump tricks that will blow your mind.
Mike Riddle - Session 2, 4 + 5
Mike Riddle has been one of the best pipe skiers in the world for a long time, appearing in his first X Games back in 2012. Watch Riddle, another former Momentum camper, slay a rail line and you’ll realise this Olympic silver medallist has serious skill both in and out of the pipe.
From Pemberton, BC Austin grew up in the mountains. He’s now an all-around back-country badass. His winters consist of skiing, climbing, speedflying and much more. Austin travels the globe shredding big lines and chasing deep snow.
Callum Pettit - Session 3
While calm and calculated on the exterior, Whistler local Callum Pettit has stepped up to some of the rowdiest lines ever descended on skis. Growing up shredding some of the gnarliest terrain in North America has given Callum an in-depth knowledge of the mountains, which he is stoked to pass on to up and coming big mountain shredders. Callum’s accolades include winner of ‘Best Line’ and ‘Full Throttle’ for his part in Sherpas Cinema’s Into the Mind at the 2013 Powder awards.
Stan Rey - Session 5
Stan Rey took his technical background in ski racing and skicross to the back-country, where he now enjoys chasing powder and busting backies off any drop you care to point out to him. Stan’s winters now revolve around filming for BLANK and Salomon Freeski TV. He skis fast, sends hard and is dedicated to spreading his new religious movement: #backysunday.
Tatum Monod - Session 5
Throwing tricks in her lines and skiing big spines, Tatum is a ripping big mountain skier. Her style is fast and flowy. Tatum won Freeskier Magazine’s ‘Skier of the Year’ in 2017 and wowed the skiing world with her second full movie segment in Level 1 Productions’ 2017 film Habit, for which she won Best Female Performance at the Powder Awards.
Fresh off a gold medal at the 2018 Olympics in halfpipe, Cassie Sharpe is ready to take to the glacier and teach the next generation. She’s a constant podium finisher at skiing’s top events and the first one to start a food fight in the lunch line up. There’s a good reason Mount Washington named a run after her!
Dania Assaly - Session 1 and 5
A former Momentum camper and Canadian freeski team member, Dania is the definition of a hype queen. She’ll be the first to get the party started on and off the hill and if you challenge her dance moves you’ll be sure to walk away second best. Dania has podiumed in major freeski events such as the Dew Tour, Aspen Open and NZ Open.
