That's the other thing. If you don't have a passport right now, it's almost too late to hit up any summer camps in canananadia. Right now is when everyone and their pet monkey's uncle applies for one so they get pretty backed up.
there are going to be other ways of crossing the border. all in all there is 4 different things you can get and will hopefully be quicker. im really hoping the date gets pushed back again lol...in less then a year my need for a passport will drop significantly since i can legally drink in america lol..

Flow NXT-FS
Nike kaiju

what's the difference between the summer adult day camp & over night camp? besides the cost

it really looks so much fun that I'm so tempting to go

so $1800 includes everything when we get there, right?!

I'm really interested in learning some tricks from the greats but have few Q's
what's the advantage of summer camp over winter camp if any??
$1800 sounds like a fairly large cost plus the air ticket.. does it really worth the price?
how dangerious really is to learn those park tricks even provided great staffs around me? I'm asking this is becoz I'm still recovering from my pulled calf pain from trying half day in park 2 weeks ago..lol
so wanna learn more but would not wanna loose my arms and legs if that's what it takes to achieve!

i can't answer a lot of those questions, but i can say that the instructors up in whistler are FANTASTIC. the best group of instructors that i've ever met, and they're all friendly and cool to hang out with. they love the sport and know their stuff.

*cough*plus the chicks are hot.*cough*

I went to Spring, Winter and Summer sessions as much as I could when I was younger. Windells is the shit, it's always a blast to ride with those guys. As for the improvement level, it all depends on how you want to push yourself. If you feel you can throw 10s in the pipe and wanna try, they won't stop you and will work with you and make sure you get the instruction you deserve for whatever. Winter and Spring (depending on conditions) focus more on freeriding and exploring the Cascades and other bowls and such. Summer is mainly freestyle (like 95.9%) and is best suited for that. I applied to be a counselor there and have been waiting to hear back. Hopefully I'll see some of you up there, my fingers are crossed.
