Waterville Valley Skate Camp

One of the most spectacular things I witnessed while in Chile were the sunsets. During my two weeks at Valle Nevado, I saw and photographed more incredible light shows than I have just about seen in my entire life. The view from Valle Nevado, perched thousands of feet above the smoggy city of Santiago is possibly one of the best in the world for watching these displays of color.

Waterville Valley is proud to announce that the Skate Camp is back for its 7th summer with 7 midweek and 6weekend sessions including overnight and day camps running June 29-August 10. Midweek overnight camps run Sunday-Friday starting at $650 which includes lodging, at Waterville's Town Square Condominium, daily skating and coaching from 10 am- 8 pm, weekly trip to the Nashua concrete outdoor skate park, Concord park and Eastern Boarder skate shop. Ralph "The Pirate" Murphy, pro rider for Substance skate boarders and Dana "D-Unit" Ericson will be returning to coach and skate along with Camp Director, Luke Mathison. Signature sessions are also back, with the likes of Oakley, Volcom and Substance Skateboards.

The WV skate park will have some new and improved features; plans include a new pyramid and a euro gap with stair set section. The Mountain Park will be in full effect with medium features and a resurfaced indoor mini ramp.

After hours, skaters can change their thrills with weekly trips to the movies, mountain biking, boating, hiking, swimming and all the newest skate videos. Plus campers will be able to relax after those long days skating out in the park at the White Mountain Athletic Center pool, sauna or hot tub

WV Skateboard Camp is open to skaters of all abilities. Day campers must be at least 7 years old and overnight campers must be at least 11.
