Okemo Ross Powers Snowboard Camp

Olympic gold medalist and snowboarding legend Ross Powers, and his posse of pro riders, will be at Okemo Mountain Resort March 22 through 24 for the annual Ross Powers Snowboard Camp.

This three-day snowboard camp is open to intermediate and advanced riders who can handle fast-paced training and riding with some of the best coaches and professional snowboarders of all time. Proceeds from the Camp benefit the Ross Powers Foundation, a non-profit organization for athletes with financial need.

"Okemo always has had a good program ... If you were ranked in the snowboarding standings, you went there. In many ways, it has always been a part of my snowboarding career," said Powers.

The fee for the Ross Powers Snowboard Camp is $499 and includes three days of on-snow coaching, a pizza party with prize drawings and a certificate of completion signed by Ross Powers. The rate does not include a required lift ticket, lodging or meals.

Owner of numerous halfpipe titles, including a gold medal at the 2002 Salt Lake City Olympics and a 1998 Olympic bronze medal, Powers is a local athlete from Londonderry.
