What is the barn?
The Barn is a 19,000 sq foot indoor facility dedicated to your freestyle ski, snowboard, skateboard, bike, and cheer/tumble progression. Complete with Indoor jumps, foam pits, skate/ bike parks, flybed trampolines, and a 14’ x 14’ Supertramp, our facility can help anyone achieve their freestyle goals.

Can I visit or watch my camper?
Friends and Family Members will be able to visit and stay in the Village since it is open to the public. Friends and Family Members will not be able to watch anything from on snow Central Terrain Park, due to limited transportation up the mountain. However they may spectate the on snow activity if they choose to hike up the mountain. They will be able to go into the Barn, only during spectator hours.
What is one thing to keep mind with Snowboard and Ski Camps?
As you go through the main camp weeks the snow conditions will change. In order for a camper to enjoy the full terrain park (jumps, rails, etc) the weeks in June and early July are the best options. As you move to the weeks in July there may not be enough snow for jumps and so there may be just rails, boxes, and jibs available. Also the features get smaller as the summer progresses. However, every summer we have had a summer on snow Terrain Park for every session through the start of August.
