Question: What do you call a crew of legendary snowboarders who come to Woodward each year to hang with the campers, shred the park and make super fun videos to share with the world?
Answer: The Videograss Crew!

Woodward staff and campers look forward to “Videograss Week” each year because of how much fun it is to hang out with this superstar crew. JP Walker, Scott Stevens, Joe Sexton and Johnny O’Connor flew the VG flag all week long with cool activities and awards for campers. Thanks to support from Week 6 sponsors Capita, Union and COAL, the VG crew was fully stocked with tons of prizes to give away throughout the week. Not only did the VG crew spend time with snowboard campers, but they also got to connect with campers from all sports during “all-camp” activities, theme parties and autograph sessions. They even organized impromptu contests in Pipeline Park where snowboard campers could win some fresh gear!

Despite a few hours of scattered rain during the week, energy in Pipeline Park was high and everyone was throwing down their best tricks all week long. Every camper from every sport got the chance to experience the on-snow barbecue with classic cheeseburgers and veggie burgers served up by the Woodward cafe staff. Once properly refueled from an awesome lunch, skiers and snowboarders wasted no time lapping the park and throwing down some jaw-dropping moves. Holding down the two-planked side of camp were visiting freeski pros Keegan Killbride, Lupe Hagearty and Chuck Babcock, who spent the week trading stunts with their sideways-standing counter parts.

Down off the mountain, action sports campers were ripping it up on skateboards, scooters, BMX and mountain bikes, while cheer campers took over The Barn spring floor and the Union Creek cheer facility. Visiting pro skateboarder Kevin Romar was a rockstar with the kids and could be seen all week hanging and skating with campers, including hooking several campers up with his pro-model skate decks during the Friday awards ceremony. While Scooter and BMX campers tried to jump and whip everything in sight, MTB campers were riding the lift up Copper Mountain and shredding miles of singletrack on their way down!
