The ski and snowboard season at [R493R, Whistler Blackcomb] runs through May 21 this spring. But then, after a short hiatus, the glacier on Blackcomb Mountain opens for summer skiing, snowboarding, and camps.
This summer, Momentum Ski Camps have scheduled a new camp called “Exposure.” Targeting youth and young adults, the new camp, which runs July 6-14, 2012, is designed to boost participants into ski and snowboard action film and photography.
Exposure will instruct campers in developing photographic and film techniques, employing a creative vision, tackling technical issues, and learning post production skills. The emphasis is on action sports, particularly skiing and snowboarding. But campers will also get a chance to experience photographing and filming off-snow sports, such as mountain biking and skateparking.

Ski photographer Blake Jorgenson from Whistler Outdoor Photography will instruct participants in action sports photography on snow.

Exposure costs $2,195 for the full package that includes accommodations, airport transfers, lift tickets, and meals. Those who want the camp and lift tickets only can pay $1,445 instead.
