Snowboard camp, Whistler

Hi everyone
I'm a guy from Denmark and I would like to try out the canadian snowboarding conditions. I have done som researching and got to the conclusion that Whistler is the best option for me. My plan is to be in Whistler for 1, maybe 2 month, and for some of those weeks try out a snowboard camp there. My plan is to visit Whistler around february/march because i have heard those month should have great snowboarding conditions.
Anyways i would like to hear what kind of experince people have with the different camps at Whistler. Are there any preferable camps for a intermediate snowboarder?

I have particular been looking at this camps: Snowboard Camps & Snowboard Instructor Courses Whistler, Canada... does anyone have any experience with it?

Thank your for all the replies

Regards Kasper

Whistler will be one of the venues for the 2010 Winter Olympics in Vancouver during February. This may put a damper on your plans based on what changes are made there to accomodate the events. I think March should be ok. Just something to consider.

I am aware of the 2010 olympics. The question is if I should try plan my trip so the olympics becomes a part of the trip or not. I see both advantages and disadvantages with both scenarios. I would be a massive experience but on the other hand it would limit the possibilities concerning the available terrain.
Either way I was thinking on doing it so I maybe get 1 week of olympics and then 2 weeks without it.

Anyway I wrote the snowboard camp i suggested in the post and they said they had high activity even though the games was going on at the same time.

After some thinking I have been thinking about doing a sommercamp instead... what are the advantages/disadvantages with doing sommercamps instead of "wintercamps"? I am thinking less available terrain in the summer?

In the summer nothing is open except for the blackcomb glacier. Still fun if you love park but if your looking for long runs and freerideish stuff go during the winter
