Woodward is probably the best training camp for extreme sports out there. I had my virtual tour at http://www.mountainyahoos.com/... and I'm planning to visit it anytime soon.
Best Lift Ticket Deal - 2012
Woodward Wednesdays at Copper Mountain
If you noticed some of your colleagues taking weekly "sick" days this winter, blame the $35 Woodward Wednesday Pass deal at Copper Mountain. The pass — a fraction of the price of a regular full-day ticket at Copper or anywhere else — was good for a single-day lift ticket on the new Union Creek high-speed chairlift serving Copper's terrain-park system and some beginner and intermediate slopes, as well as a drop-in session with the coaches at Woodward at Copper's indoor training facility and an après-shred beer or soda. Locals found the rips/tips/sips combo irresistible, even if they had a season pass elsewhere, and frequently found themselves sharing the Wednesday sessions with pro skiers and snowboarders and other visiting celebrities: In January, Lil Wayne stopped by to skate the bowl in the Barn at Copper, later giving Woodward Wednesdays the Weezy stamp of approval.
