Mount Washington, Canada

Science Friction Camps

The Venue

Perched a mile above the Comox Valley on Vancouver Island, Mount Washington Alpine Resort sandwiches itself between the waters of the Salish Sea and the mountains of Strathcona Provincial Park.

This true alpine to ocean country is one of the few places you can ski or ride in the mountains all day and then watch the sunset from the beach in the evening!

Home to 1700+ acres of in bounds terrain from steep glades to cruisy corduroy, Mount Washington has enough variety to keep every skier entertained.

Did we mention Mount Washington often lays claim to the deepest snowpack in Canada! And when the snow finally does stop falling and the skies clear, you'll be rewarded with spectacular coastal views unlike any other. This unique coast mountain experience is one of Canada's best kept secrets!

The Package

  • 4 Days Coaching
  • Video Analysis Sessions
  • Apres Ski Munchies
  • Technical enlightenment

Become your own ski instructor!

Do you want to build confidence to ski in any terrain? Have masterful control over your speed and direction? Maybe you want to carve up the groomers with sweeping arcs or make your turns shorter and snappy. Perhaps you want to shred powder, bumps, trees or steeps?

On Section 8’s Science Friction camps you determine the objective… and like mad scientists in a snowy laboratory we’ll help you discover your inner ski geek.

Video analysis sessions will help you differentiate perceptions from reality as our top certified coaches perform a double blind placebo controlled study on your skiing. Whatever the terrain or conditions, through guided experimentation you’ll discover how to best adapt your technique and tactics to the situation. Don’t worry, it won’t be all talk. There will be plenty of guided mileage and pushing your boundaries.
