Here's what a few campers have said...


I love Core Camps! It's really hard to explain exactly why but I'll give it a go. Turner has built a family. This is no easy task as each weekend new people arrive and old people leave. But from the day I set foot, I felt like I'd been there months. One of the really nice things about the group I was with was the eclectic mix. I live in Hong Kong, one was from Australia, US, Canada, UK and South Africa. That made it really special. The coaches and tour guides know the mountain better than anyone else, they take you to the best spots and constantly push you to go that little bit further. Whistler as a destination is unreal. So much to ski/board. You could do an entire season and not get board of this place. I couldn't recommend Core enough. Since completing my first camp I've already put my name down for another. If you're on the fence, just book it. I promise you, you won't regret it.

Rob - UK / Hong Kong - 2 week Whistler Camp + Japan Camp (age 32)

Amazing experience! Had the best two weeks with core camps. Everything was really well organised, accommodation was great and perfect location. Coaches were awesome and know the mountain so well you get taken to all the best spots. Met so many great people from all over the world. Turner is super cool and always there to help with anything you need + give advice about places to go in the area. Wish i could have stayed longer! Really hope to be able to return in the future. Core was everything i hoped and more.

Kirsty - UK - 2 week camp (age 28)

Perfect setup for anyone looking to go on a solo trip, with a partner, or with a group of friends. Very well organised from an operations perspective, not forgetting the excellent coaches who know the mountains like the back of their hand. People who join these camps are serious about snow, and fun to be around. You'll be hard pressed to find a better camp in the mountains.

Dan - USA - 2 week camp (age 35)

Just spent an awesome 4 weeks with Core Camps! Turner and the rest of the guys take all the stress out of planning a ski trip - you literally just have to rock up and have fun! Was really pushed to take my skiing to another level during these 4 weeks. Learnt so much and tried many things I wouldn't even contemplate had it not been for the amazing coaches and encouragement from the rest of the group. Will be back! See you in 2018!

Sarah-Anne - Singapore - 4 week camp (age 30)

I was supposed to stay in CoreCamps just for one week but finally I decide to stay 3 weeks because it was an absolutely amazing experience. Corecamps is about riding with super nice people, making new friends and to share some awesome stories with people from all over the world. The coaches take you a little bit out of your comfort zone so you will defintive improve your riding on a safe way. Turner and all the guys from Corecamps do everything that you feel great- join Corecamps and you will have an unforgettable experience for sure!

Katharina - Switzerland - 3 week camp (age 20)

Hi Turner, we just want to say thank you to you and the whole team. This was a "great awesome hard to describe with words" experience. Jordan is a really awesome person and coach who made the Corecamp adventure to a lifetime adventure on the slopes and on the dance floor =) Just let me know when the red sticker on the Japan Camp is getting closer, that we can get our spot, waiting for your mail! Hope to see you all soon again and enjoy the rest of this great season and La Nina winter. Thanks so much!

Ben and Sheila - Germany - 2 week camps (age 26)

Best time of the year, every year...awesome crew, awesome mountains, awesome everything

Christian - Colombia - 4 x 1 week camps (age 24)

Best week! If you're thinking about going, go!

Julia - Sweden - 1 week camp (age 30)

Fantastic experience; lots of fun, very well run and great value for money. Discovered areas of the mountains with Core Camp's instructors which I would never have found on my own. Do it!

Campbell - UK - 2 week camp (age 28)

A fantastic experience all around! Core Camps will guide you to new terrain and get you going to places you wouldn't consider otherwise. Campers come from a diverse background and all share the same passion for skiing and snowboarding.

Patrick - Australia - 2 week camp (age 32)

Could not recommend more for skiers and boarders. No matter what your level, you will leave riding much better and more comfortable across more terrain. Plus you will have fun and meet new people doing it! If you want a more complete experience than a standard lesson then try a camp. You will not regret it!

Luke - Australia - 3 week camp (age 18)

Came up on my own, and had a great time! Everyone was really friendly. The camp was very well organized, and the coaches were awesome. They took us to spots on the mountain that we would not have gone on our own, and gave good feedback to everyone on technique, etc. Highly recommend, whether travelling alone or with friends. I only stayed a week (which was a bit too short)

Joanna - Canada - 1 week camp (age 32)

My wife and I booked into Core camps for our honeymoon. I can't speak to highly about this place. All the guys working there were fantastic and really helped us progress

John and Niamh - Ireland - 2 week camps (age 32)

Definitely going to do another Core Camp next season!!! They have a great team that will push you out of your comfort zone and improve your riding. I recommend more than one week if possible :)

Sefi - USA - 1 week camp (age 35)

So amazing experience! Whistler offers unbelievably huge terrain for riders and these guys will show you how to get the most out of it. Everything is very well-organized, accomodation is really nice. Coaches are extremely experienced - no matter what your current level is, they will make you a better and more confident rider. I improved my riding a lot, met people from all over the world and had really great time there! Highly recommend - you will not regret that!

Tomasz - Poland - 2 week camp (age 34)

As two beginners in snowboarding with only 6 days of riding experience, my husband and I didn't really know what to expect from a one week camp. We were hoping to get more out of this camp than just signing up with group lessons at ski resort in which our luck are dependent on the mercy of random coach assignment. The camp blew us away with amazing coach and nice comrade atmosphere in the rider house. It started clicking on day one and I could feel improvement with every run down the slope. The only regret we have is we couldn't stay longer for multiple week camps. Highly recommended!

Sophie and Yan - USA - 1 week Beginner Camp (age 42)

Fantastic week. Very cool and helpful instructors. I opted for the full day sessions. Freeride in the morning and freestyle in the afternoon. The best part of the camp is being able to ride with other goal orientated people. Just trying to get better. Turner was very accommodating. I broke my tailbone on the mountain the day before I was supposed to start camp. He let me take a rain check and do the camp when my tailbone healed. Which was very considerate. Try them out!

Bao - Canada - 2 x 1 week camps (age 39)

Best snowboard experience ever! I did stuff that I wouldn't have done without the great coaches because not only they know everything about Whistler Blackcomb where to find perfect places but also because they teach you exactly where you need it. This results in improvements and getting confidence in various things about snowboarding. I can recommend it to everyone who loves snowboarding, likes getting to know great new people from all over the world and knows how to party hard. ;-) no without joking guys, this is it! Thank you for everything Core family, you are the best!

Jeanine - Switzerland - 5 week camp (age 24)

Always a great time with core camps! Awesome bunch of people, good food and lots of comedy! Turner and Marcos did an awesome job at arranging every last detail of the trip and with guiding us around Niseko!

Tom - Netherlands - 12 week Whistler Camp, Japan Camp, Argentina Camp (age 24)

I had a fantastic time at Core Camps! The instructors are world class, everything is organised very well, and the other campers are always a great bunch of people. Thanks again Tuner, I will definitely be back!

Paul - Australia - 3 week camp (age 30)

Really well organised camp for snowboarders. The instructors are professional and help you push yourself in a friendly environment. Also great fun meeting and riding with snowboarders from all around the world. I'll definitely go back and recommend the camp to others!

Mishtu - UK - 1 week camp (age 40)

Great trip, friendly bunch and focus on good times :-)

David - UK - Whistler Camp x 4, Alaska Camp, Japan Camp, Argentina Camp (age 36)

I stayed for 4 weeks in the Core Camp and it was the best time that I ever had in my life. I met a lot of new, great people and the evenings that we spent together were so much fun. I never thought that the skiing can be so awesome. But Whistler is a wonderful place and the coaches from Core Camp are incredible. We did a lot of great stuff. Some of them I never thought that I'm able to do this. All what I can say is, thank you for the unforgettable time!!!

Karin - Switzerland - 4 week camp (age 28)

It was the best time that I ever had! I stayed for 7 weeks in the Core Camp and it was amazing. I never had such a good time on the Snowboard. You will be better after the camp in everything, because the coaches from the camp are awesome. They push you to the limit. « Go big or go home » I met a lot of new people from all over the world. I can`t say how the feeling is, when you are a part of this little family. It was wonderful. Thanks for this unbelievable time in Whistler.

Alex - Australia - 7 week camp + Alaska Camp (age 30)

Amazing experience, unfortunately I only got to stay there for 1 week, but it was enough to improve my riding skills. Turner and the instructors are great, I rode with Ollie and got to learn a bunch from him. Besides the instructors I also got to meet several other riders who were participating in the camp and that contribute to make an unforgettable experience. Will definitely come back for a couple more weeks as soon as possible.

Fernando - Brazil - 1 week camp (age 35)

Ultimate powder, life changing experience. :)

Christine - USA - 1 week x 2 (age 24)

What a great ride with Core Camps! The only thing you would regret is not to stay longer! You will feel part of a small awesome family while in Whistler , with plenty activities besides great Snowboard/Ski lessons with top coaches, great support from Turner and his team and definitely a great time with all your new friends from around the world. Looking forward for my next season with Core Camps! Highly recommended!

Adrian - Germany - 2 week camp (age 21)

I just spent my second two week stay with Core. I had originally only booked a one week stay, but after 2 nights in Whistler I knew one week wasn't going to be enough. Turner was able to work with me and find a spot for me to stay. The thing I love most about Core Camps is the people. Nearly everyone in camp is travelling solo, creating an environment like no other. You instantly make friends from all over the globe. Since everyone is coming in solo, everyone is very welcoming and friendly. When you first arrive you will have to get your groceries for the week, usually someone that has been there is more than willing to walk down to the village with you to show you around and help out anyway you can. The riding: Turner has assembled some of the best coaches around. They are unbelievable riders, and are able to teach you anything you want to know, and can find subtle habits in your riding to correct. All the coaches have spent many seasons in Whistler, so going with Core will allow you to visit all of the secret local spots that you would otherwise not even know existed. Everyone that goes to Core leaves a better rider than when they arrived. Whether you're going for one week or an entire season. They do a video night once a week where you get to see yourself ride and share some laughs with the other campers, these video sessions really help understand just what the coach has been saying all week. I cannot say enough about Core Camps, I recommend it to everyone. This recent trip was my second time back, but definitely will not be the last. Thank you Turner for the most amazing experience of my life.

Andrew - Canada - 2 week camp x 2 + Alaska Camp (age 23)

I was in freestyle camp for 2 weeks, It was soo good I regretted not signing up for full days. Coaches are full of energy all day. Turner (the owner) will do anything to help. Most of us come alone, various ages and skill levels, but we all end up being a big ski family. Never felt so at home away from home. Ever since I left I have been thinking about coming back. Cya soon again Core Camps!

Adelaide - Australia - 2 week camp (age 25)

What a great experience!!! This camp is the best skiing experience I've ever had and I've been skiing since I was 3. I absolutely recommend it! Amazing people, skillful coaches and the beauty of Whistler combined is just unbeatable. Definitely want to go back!

Luca - Switzerland - 8 week camp (age 22)

Best experience ever. Great instructors and a very personal set-up. Must-do!

Karl - UK - Backcountry Camp (age 29)

Incredibly authentic Whistler snowboard camp. Turner and the coaches are phenomenal and will constantly push you to improve your snowboarding. Fantastic experience!

Nicholas - South Africa - 4 week camp (age 26)

Great experience! I recommend and will be back soon!

Alexandre - Brazil - 1 week camp (age 33)

Skiing and riding with Core is a life changing experience! Super friendly and will improve your riding!

Anthony - Australia - Whistler Camp x 2 and Alaska Camp (age 32)

I was going to write this super long review describing how awesome core camps is...but I haven't had time as I am too busy planning my 5th trip back with them

Doug - Canada - Whistler Camp x 3 + Alaska Camp (age 26)

**Highly recommended** Very cool knowledgeable camp crew/coaches guiding you on the best terrain in Whistler (On and off-piste, backcountry, park, trees, etc.) and pushing your limits the right way! Thanks Turner, Olivier, Jordan and team for an amazing good time on and off the mountain! Looking forward to next time!

Yamil - USA - 1 week camp (age 37)

The Core Camps family are a great team that are able to improve and raise the game of riders in a super tailored and personalised way. Not just thinking about a repeat trip, but more about repeat trips!

Mike - Canada - 2 camps so far (age 42)

Highly recommended! Stayed with Core for 12 weeks way back in 2016. Picked up something new everyday, and constantly being pushed into new terrain; technique and tricks is a really effective teaching style. The instructors are equally as friendly as they are talented, and just watching them ride is constant education. The owner Turner couldn’t be more hospitable, providing both an incredible experience & atmosphere. He’s ok on a board too i guess! If you're looking to progress, ride pow and meet likeminded people on the way, this is a great place to check out

Krishan - UK - 12 week camp (age 21)

Wow. Had an amazing time. Great coaches. Core's attention to every detail ensured the best experience possible. Couldn't have asked for more. Wish I could give you 6 stars out of 5. Thanks Core Camps.

Azmy - Canada - 1 week camp (age 36)

Third time with this fantastic camp in a wonderful location, and it won't be my last. If you are looking for:- * The most fun you can have sliding down a mountain * Beautiful mountains * Top class instruction * Great people (Both instructors and campers) then this is the camp for you. Can't recommend the camp highly enough. Ollie, Jordan and Marcos are all fantastic coaches, and I have seen everyone from a 2 week novice to a CASI level 2 qualified boarder improve their riding in the course of a camp, and more importantly have a great time doing it. Thanks to everyone in Core, and see you again soon!

Tom - Ireland - 3 x 2 week camps (age 34)

If your goal is improving your riding, meeting amazing people, have good times and a bunch of laughs, then Core Camps is the place. Can't fault my experience except for not being able to stay longer.

Kristo - Croatia - 3 + 7 week camps (age 30)

Core Camps is the best program for: • Meet and love the beautiful and great area of Whistler Blackcomb. • Improve your own snowboard skills • Meet great people • excellent experiences • And to spend the best/funniest time Competent, helpful and friendly coaches who always have a joke in store. I was always afraid to drive over a box. The coach could take away my fear and I felt safer with everything. They know the area very well and brought us every day to beautiful spots, which I wouldn’t have found myself. They give individual tips while driving. At the weekly video analysis, Turner and the coaches give suggestions for improvement and compliments. You can see how much the Core Camps Turner means. Turner manages to turn the core camps into a family. As I had already been to Whistler, I was admitted to the family before my stay in the camp. I’m home two weeks and I miss my international family. I would recommend everyone to go to Core Camps. Already on the second day I realized that it will not be my last stay in the Core Camps. It was the best two weeks I've had so far and I hope to be able to go again soon.

Chiara - Switzerland - 2 week camp (age 20)

Amazing camp. Flawless logistics, passionate instructors, and whole lot of fun and learning. I had less than 20 days of snowboard experience before coming to Core, and left camp feeling confident on all types of terrain, and was trying tricks and jumps in the terrain park. Everyone's experience was totally customized, and no two days were the same. The super passionate coaches took us to experience parts of the mountain I never would've known to go otherwise, and there was never a lack of things to do in the evenings with housemates or events organized by the camp. Two weeks wasn't long enough, I can't wait to be back :)

Nicole - Canada - 2 week camp (age 25)

Although I only stayed with Core Camps for a week, I got everything that I came for and more ! Turner is an excellent host who cares about your experience and thinks with you how to make things work best. Marcos was my coach (skiing) and while he (of course) also made sure the basics were in place (technique, pointers, position, balance, etc), he focused on having FUN and the mental element of skiing... This is what makes the difference for me between a good coach and a great one. As Turner said to me: our coaches take the campers out to do stuff that they'd also choose to do in their own free time... All-in-all an excellent experience that both boosted my skiing level, as well as my confidence, happy to recommend!

Jeroen - Netherlands - 1 week camp (age 35)

I had an amazing time in Whistler with Core camps. My skiing improved so much thanks to my wonderful coach Marcos. It was always so much fun riding with him and the group, I already miss it. The camp is great value and if you're hesitant to book it, just do it. I can assure you that you will not be disappointed. I'm already looking forward to coming back someday.

Danielle - Switzerland - 3 week camp (age 21)

Best snowboarding camp to learn and have fun. Its my third time with core camps and I can’t even wait till I’m back next year. Big thanks to Turner and Ollie for all the effort!

Ahmad - Kuwait - 12 weeks over 3 camps (Whistler and Road Trip Camps) (age 33)

With no skiing experience, I spent a week at Core Camps and had the time of my life! Turner took care of all gear hire, ski lessons, accommodation and transport logistics which meant I had nothing to think about and could just relax and have fun. I loved getting to know the other campers and wished I could have stayed longer! I would highly recommend Core Camps and can’t wait to book again :)

Annabel - Australia - 1 week Beginner Ski Camp (age 21)

Wonderful experience with the camp. The coaches work hard to correct individual weaknesses during the day. At the house at night, you get to mingle with many people from all over the world. Camp is well run by Turner. Will look forward to return when schedule allows.

Keith - USA - 11 week camp (age 47)

Pardon the pun, but the Core of these camps is maximum fun. Exceptionally planned and organized, from, the moment you land in Vancouver, things run smoothly at Turner's direction. And when you set foot on the mountain you know you're in capable hands with Core's first rate coaches. One week was the highlight of my winter thus far, and it spoke to the quality of the camp that at the end of it, I was ready to book another week. The camp attracts many like-minded folks, so even when you're not riding, you'll be enjoying hanging out with some of the best new friends you can make.

Craig - Canada - 2 week camp (age 32)

The camp has a really friendly relaxed atmosphere and if the resort has unridden powder available the coaches will be able to find it. The camp is really well run and flexible. The only negative is having to go home when you wish you could stay for the rest of the season.

Pete - UK - 1 + 2 week camps (age 24)

Neck deep pow pow, backcountry onsens, saki, sushi, good vibes, great coaches. What more could you want.

John - UK - Whistler Camp x 4, Japan Camp, Argentina Camp, Alaska Camp, Road Trip Camp... (age 40)

Core Camps in Whistler was an incredible experience - to the point where half a week in to my two week camp, I requested to extend for an extra week! The camp is run seamlessly thanks to Turner, and the coaching on the mountain will push you past any previous boundaries or limits you may have placed on your skiing/boarding. Would definitely recommend this to anyone looking to take their skiing/boarding to the next level(s), it’s more than worth it.

Ben - Australia - 2 week camp (age 23)

Amazing opportunity to improve on your skiing, meet new people from all around the world and have lots of fun! It is very well organized. I believe one week is not enough, time flies!

Elisa and Rosie (sisters) - Argentina - 1 week camps (age 18)

This camp is amazing! had the best days of snowboard of my live with CORE, great coaches and always new friends.

Jeff - Brazil - Whistler Camp x 2 + Japan Camp (age 28)

Quite honestly the best ski/snowboard camp you will ever experience. Turner and the crew run Core unbelievably well, from the moment you think about booking to the day you eventually leave. Everything is handled for you, so all you have to worry about is enjoying your skiing. I was also incredibly lucky to have met some lifelong friends, spent some time riding with the best skiers/boarders I've ridden with, got pushed to my absolute limits and ultimately improved my skiing no end. Big thanks to ski coaches Javi and Marcos and of course Turner for having set up this amazing camp. See you next year guys.

Charles - UK - 6 week camp (age 22)

Having had such an amazing time during my backcountry camp I decided to rejoin Core for their Japan camp. I can say, without hesitation, that this was the best skiing experience of my life. We happened to experience unbelievable conditions during our time there and were fortunate to wake up to a powder day nearly every day of our trip. The snow in Niseko is ridiculously light and fluffy. We had a great group of hard-charging skiers and snowboards on our trip. Turner and Marcos were fantastic coaches, as usual, who took us all over the mountain to find the most interesting and challenging runs each day we were out. I would 100% recommend going on this trip if you have the opportunity. Life-changing experience for me.

Christopher - USA - Japan Camp (age 37)

Just returned from the 2 week backcountry camp and have nothing but positive things to say about the experience. The camps allow you to spend your time with an international group of enthusiastic like-minded skiers/snowboards. The coaches are experienced, know the mountain well and are very encouraging. I'd highly recommend the camp to anyone considering it.

Christopher - USA - 2 week Backcountry Camp (age 37)

I joined the camp as a skier for one week and did not stay in camp accommodation. Core was a great way to improve all mountain skiing, particularly skiing cornices, drop-offs, powder, moguls and some park. I had a great time and met a super bunch of people. The team at the Camp (Turner and Vic) were friendly and very well organised. Only wish I had longer!

Tom - UK - 1 week camp (age 31)

Best Coaches on the mountain!!, Small groups, Riders will come out of this camp like a Pro. You will reach that next level you are looking for. Highly recommend, and CORE CAMP is where it’s at.

Scott - Hong Kong - Whistler Camp x 4, Alaska Camp, Japan Camp... (age 41)

Awesome ski camp, with a real community vibe and rad coaches who push you just as much mentally as they do on skills. I never thought I would be hitting cliff and cornice drops, skiing gnarly chutes or taking lines through trees at high speed, but that's where the Core Camps coaches get you to! Thanks Turner and the gang and hope to see you next year!

Robert - UK - 5 week camp (age 32)

Thanks to all you guys at Core Camps. You made it nothing but perfect for my daughter (Asta) and I. But then again, I knew that since you did that also last time for my son (Hjalte) and I 3 years ago. A special thanks to our coaches, Clovis and Jordan, you were simply the best. And thanks for the special attention you gave me in the afternoons, much appreciated. To all of you fathers out there, give yourself a special treat and bring your children and yourself to Core Camps and live for one week in a rider-house filled with nothing but joy, happiness and fun. Thanks again, Turner to you and your crew. Hope to see you soon again

Peter, Asta, Hjalte - Denmark - 2 camps with his teenage kids (age 50)

Had great fun with Turner, Marcos and the Core Camps crew. Improved my technique enormously over the two weeks I was there (oddly as an advanced skier a lot of simple stuff was what really needed fixing). Also learnt how to jump of cliffs and all kinds of fun. The guiding aspect of the lessons is something I really value (it's technique whilst having fun / going places you wouldn't normally). To note, the camp I did was mornings only which confuses some people. I'm a fit guy and trust me, mornings is plenty. Thanks Core Camps - see you soon.

Alistair - UK - 2 week camp (age 31)

100% worth-it. Quality adult snowboard instruction is difficult to find, and after a lot of research I settled on Core Camps which exceeded my expectations... I participated in the freestyle instruction program. From the camp, I wanted to learn proper form on larger jumps to stay balanced in the air- mission accomplished with the help of my coach. Plus I wanted to learn proper spinning technique for a beginner- goal met. By the end of camp instruction, I was landing clean 360s. It was also cool that my coach video recorded a lot of runs- so it was nice to have the footage to share with my friends when I got home. From a convenience standpoint, I like that the office/facilities are an easy walk from the mountain. Great time and highly recommended.

Charlie - USA - 1 week camp (age 38)

A fabulous camp, so good I came back a second time! It is well run in terms of the ski lesson part, as well as the accommodation and logistics side. Turner will go out of his way to make sure you have the best possible experience Top notch instructors - I learnt so much, not just about skiing technique, but also about reading the mountain, how to find the best snow, and how to handle/approach different situations. Thank you Turner, Marcos and the rest of the team!

Anna - Australia - 3 week Camp x 2 (age 31)

Had a tremendous experience in Argentina with Core Camps this August. Both Turner and Marcos were fantastic guiding us through the mountains and exploring the town. The food, the laughs and the company, a truly wonderful adventure!

Mikaela - Canada - Argentina Camp (age 25)

I've been with Core Camps to four different countries (Niseko/Japan, Whistler/Canada, Bariloche/Argentina, and Alyeska/Alaska) and each trip has been unforgettable and amazing. Turner, Marcos, Jordan and the rest of the Core crew are terrific and really take great care of the campers both on and off the mountain. Just finished the Niseko camp, which was a trip of a lifetime. Had some amazing runs and made friends with a terrific group of people.

Warren - USA - Argentina Camp x 3, Whistler Camp x 4, Japan Camp, Alaska Camp (age 49)

Dear Turner, It was a delightful and thoroughly enjoyable, beautiful experience in Argentina. I really enjoyed joining you and the terrific group. Everyone was great. You have developed a memorable brand and the group has a wonderful vibe. So Fun in every way...it was an inspirational time. Fantastic to meet you and spend time. Warm wishes

Clara - USA - Argentina Camp (age 60)

Had a blast, thanks so much for putting it together and hosting.

Donald - USA - Whistler Camp + Argentina Camp (age 31)

Turner Sir, the 2018 Trip was fantastic and again it was a mix of great people, weather, food and drink and thanks to you and Marcos the way it was organised and run - it was top drawer sir. Dave & I certainly appreciated being able to bolt on things like La Frey [hut trip] and Las Lenas and as is the Core way you allowed those who wanted to try this and that's the make of the forward thinking person you are and the ethos of Core. We could not have done it without you and the awesome Marcos, who hooked us up with his contacts in a heartbeat and whom took us into their care and friendship like they knew us for years. The above makes the 2018 Trip even more unique than 2014.

Dermot - Ireland - Argentina Camp x 2, Alaska Camp, Japan Camp, Road Trip Camp, Whistler Camp x 5 (age 40)

Hi Turner, I have to thank you! My expectations have been exceeded by far. The camp was a blast!!! :-) The snowboarding was awesome, more pow days than during the whole last season in Switzerland, and I had a lot of fun and good laughs with you guys. Not to forget the super tasty food and vinous evenings. I had a great time with Core Camps and it really helped me to recharge my batteries after an insanely busy time at work. And I'm in love with Argentina now and definitely want to visit it again some time. I'm sure I will return to Core Camps, may it be in Whistler or somewhere else around the world. Finally I'd like to thank you (and Marcos) for your kind words to me [on the] last Friday evening, I really appreciated them. Best regards,

Vera - Switzerland - Argentina Camp and Whistler Camp (age 32)

Thank you for everything you did to make this a positive and fantastic experience. Thanks for returning him in one piece. Thank you for watching over him and giving him a life experience in a passion that he has developed. Hopefully he was respectful, helpful, and a positive and valuable addition to your ski program!!!! (Let me know!!!!) He has not stopped talking about the great skiing (POWDER!!!! POWDER !!!!! and more POWDER!!!)

Josh (from his Dad) - USA - Argentina Camp, Japan Camp, Whistler Camp x 3 (age 16)

Yo Turner, I'm so glad i signed up for the trip - it was a unforgettable experience. Such a down to earth crew, couldn't imagine a better posse. I can't thank you and Marcos enough for making it what it was. Killed it bro. Catch you on the flip side.

Mick - Australia - Argentina Camp x 2, Japan Camp x 2, Whistler Camp x 3 (age 27)

“DO IT! Best way to appreciate whistler! An incredible way to go to whistler. The camp is flexible, friendly and doesn't take itself too seriously...saying that it can safely take you to whatever limits you would like to push yourself to on the mountain. The coaches are extremely experienced and can tailor the lessons to what you need. Sometimes that is working on a specific part of your carving other days its showing you some of the lesser known spots. I had visited whistler before but as a tourist you dont even scratch the surface. They always know where the best conditions on the mountain are and therefore you get more out of your trip than is safely possible without them. People often worried about who (age/gender/level etc etc etc) is on the camp but they are pointless worries. Everyone is there to ride and the levels are so varied that you will find your place in no time. Just you, with a friend or a group its fantastic. For a week, a month or a season. Core Camps is the ideal set up for snowboarding, thats why sooo many people come back. This has been a bit of a gushing review for me but I had 2 months there and bloody loved it!"

Bobby - UK - 8 week camp (age 33)

“My favorite escape... I had such an amazing and unforgettable experience during my week long stay with Core Camp! If you want to have fun while incorporating a higher level of athleticism to your skiing ability, I highly recommend that you sign up soon. The camp exceeded my expectations in all aspects ranging from the efficient enrollment process and comprehensive agenda, to the goals/results achieved throughout my stay. The instructors are colorful characters and provided insightful techniques that helped me to charge fast and freely down runs less travelled set amongst a backdrop of the most breathtaking scenery imaginable. I learned so much about expanding my capabilities, skiing smarter across various terrain, equipment fundamentals, forces of nature, and the ONLY way one should eat chicken wings. Fellow campers were diverse, personable and energetic. So encouraging and such a pleasure to ride with. Turner, the camp owner/director, is top notch. He is extremely thoughtful, ensuring that everyone is integrated and having a fabulous time both on and off the slopes. I loved the group BBQ! This was my fifth visit to Whistler, but the first time seeing and feeling it in such a unique and inspiring way. I am so grateful for the opportunity of having Core Camp as part of my journey. I hope it becomes a part of yours too."

Bernice - USA - 1 week camp (age 40)

“Best way to experience Whistler! Core camps have so much to offer. If you’re looking to improve your riding skills, find some great spots on Whistler Blackcomb, or just have a fun time with a good group of people, this is the camp for you. I was only able to stay for a week, but it was one of the best weeks ever. If I had the opportunity to stay longer, I would do so without question. Unfortunately, my work schedule wouldn’t allow it. Thank you Core camps for making my Whistler vacation so delightful!"

Philip - USA - 1 week camp (age 23)

“Best SnowCamp Ever...=) The Coaches are great, lots of positive input, great motivators, and makes everything come together for the riders. Riders are awesome, and always have your back on the mountain."

Scott - Hong Kong - Whistler x 4, Japan and Alaska Camps (age 41)

“Can´t wait for next season!!!! I spent a great week with Core Camps in January 2016. Everything and everyone, from Turner, the coaches, the other campers in the house…..help me to get in the “zone” of riding and getting better. And the weather was excellent (powder days). Flute bow was the best!!! If you are in doubt of taking this journey with Core Camps, GO FOR IT!!!! I was, but I enjoyed so much that I am looking forward to come back next season to stay as much time as I can. Hopefully it would be more than 1 week. Core camps takes cares of everything, all you need to worry is to have fun! Thank you Turner and the crew for everything."

Bruno - Peru - 1 week camp (age 38)

“Get Screaming! It was my first time at Core Camps and Whistler and such a different take on a weeks' ski course. If you want to be pushed out of your comfort zone, improve in powder, throw yourself off some jumps and meet a bunch of like minded people then this is for you. Intermediate skiers will benefit most as you will take a step up from piste technique focus and really get learning by example and practise. The free ski element really pushes you to get involved and take your skiing to the next level. But you have to be brave and get stuck in! I think if you want to truly feel part of the team you are best staying in the group accommodation but even though I didn't, I had a great time meeting a whole range of ages and nationalities. This adds to the experience and it was lovely to meet the Argie coaches Javier and Marcos too. I know Javi enjoyed my switch ski-ing the most ;) Turner is very organised and helpful and this ensures that you don't need to worry about too much when you get there and that you can trust the booking from overseas. Hopefully I will be back one day and this course has given me the confidence to step up my skiing and I look forward to practicing what I have learnt on my next trip."

Louise - UK - 1 week camp (age 39)

“So much serenity... I had nothing short of a fricking blast at Core Camps, Whistler. After a long year of solid work, I needed a break, something that didn't involve too much organising and would entertain me. I was extremely entertained. From day one, Turner, general big boss man, snowboarder extraordinaire, aficionado of peculiar cult films and practicing comedian (still needs some work), was an extraordinary host. Arriving in the big unknown of Canada, jet-lagged and alone, I was promptly escorted directly to the door of one of the camp houses, where I stayed for the next 4 weeks, surrounded by great people and good times. The thing about Core Camps, although of course a clichè, you do feel part of a family and coming alone or in a group everyone welcomes you with arms akimbo. The snow was insanely good, I don't think there was a week where we didn't have at least 1 (if not 5) days where we were lining up bright and early for some sweet pow runs (proceeding to get so #pitted). Variety of great coaches, who became good friends once we broke down their shallow facades of snowboarding despots. Big shout out to Oli, Melie and Luke. Getting emotional, have to stop. But unequivocal and indubitable good times to be had I'd still be there if I wasn't broke now"

Brendan - Australia - 4 week camp (age 24)

“Best month ever! I had such a good time with Core last year that I just had to come back for another month this year and it was the best month ever. We rode fresh powder, did tree runs, jumps, drops and carved up the mountains. My snowboarding improved so much that I went from doing green and blue runs to double blacks competently. All the campers and coaches are super nice and it's such a positive and supportive atmosphere I didn't want to leave. I can't wait until next season - I think I'll do two months!!" {and her did}

Alex - Australia - 1 + 4 + 8 week camps (age 31)

“Get involved... You won't regret it! If you are planning a trip to Whistler do yourself a favour and get involved with Core Camps, you won't regret it! Myself and my two friends did just that and had the best two weeks ever. We loved skiing with our awesome coaches Javier and Marcos who taught us loads and pushed us to get outside of our comfort zone and keep improving... all while taking us to all the best spots on the mountain. Other than the amazing skiing the other main thing that impressed us about Core was the service. From the moment we registered for Core Camps to the moment we left Turner went out of his way to ensure everything went smoothly. If you love getting knee deep in powder and meeting some really cool people along the way then Core is definitely for you!"

Sean - Scotland - 2 week camp (age 24)

“Great Experience! I join Core Camps for 2 weeks as a snowboard beginner. I learned solid techniques that allow me to snowboard with confidence with the proper mindset to always reach the next level. Thanks for the excellent coaches I had there! People there are awesome and Turner is a great organizator. I recommend the camps and I wish I could have stay longer there!"

Saphir - France - 2 week camp (age 25)

“Best Vacation Ever!!!!! Over the past two years I have been with Core Camps for a grand total of a month and a half, and I loved every second of it. The skiing is the best, there is something for everyone to learn or try, everyday I was up on the hill I was laughing and improving myself as a skier. I highly recommend Core Camps to anyone of any age or of any skill level, Core has created a welcoming and warm environment for everyone whether it be on hill or off hill your always entertained and having fun."

Cian - Argentina Camp and 3 x Whistler Camp - Brazil (age 18)

“Off the scale. My biggest brother and I checked into Core Camps during a family holiday in Whistler over Christmas, and it was one of the best decisions I've ever made that didn't feature poutine. Turner was funny, friendly and helpful. It was real reassuring to meet someone with an even nerdier obsession with Love Actually than me. He made us feel welcome even though we weren't staying in the Core house, and made an effort to introduce us to the other campers, who were also great. From the first day, when Turner sent us away burgeoning under the weight of free stash, we knew the camp was going to be good value for money. I now have an entire outfit of highly exclusive Core merchandise (underwear and pants not included) which has made me the envy of all my peers. Excellent. The skiing conditions were divine and, although Core Camp probably shouldn't take credit for the weather, Richard, our coach, made sure that we really made the most of it. Our group was small, mighty and dynamic and we really challenged each other (physically and mentally). It is safe to say that we all learned a great deal. At the beginning of the camp I was an experienced, but not exactly textbook perfect skier, but through a series of on-piste drills which were then contextualised off-piste, Richard really helped me to develop and improve my style (further aided by my wavy Core Camp garms). I got to put my new skills to the test skiing some breath taking terrain in perfect powder. Skiing Flute on Christmas day was one of the most standout best moments of my life so far. I literally and figuratively had a smile frozen onto my little adrenaline flushed face. Core Camp kept the good times rolling off the slopes as well; there were some great evenings spent in Whistler's bars and Stella's Christmas dinner was completely off the chain. Thank you Stella, I'm still having gourmet flash-backs. Even if I tried really hard I wouldn't be able to fault the week. The Core crew were flawless, the snow was perfect and Whistler was exquisite. In the words of Karen, the sad mum from Love Actually, 'True love lasts a lifetime,' so Whistler, I'll be back."

Kitty and Bro - UK - 1 week camp (age 23)

“Amazing honeymoon with core camp! My husband and I did core camp for our honeymoon and we had an amazing time. Turner the camp director was awesome and made sure we had a great time both on and off the mountain. Our coach was patient, helpful, a lot of fun and took us to areas of the mountain we would have never experienced. We improved our snowboarding while having fun. We loved the house we stayed in and had a great time with the others. We would highly recommend it to anyone. We hope to do it again some day."

Nikki and Francis - Canada - 1 week camps (age 27)

“The best snowboarding experience of my life. Superb experience Great mountains Great organisation Great snow Great people If you want to improve as a snowboarder in the company of great people with amazing piste and off piste terrain this is the place for you. Camp is really well run, and my only complaint was I wanted to stay longer."

Tom - Ireland - 2 week camp (age 31)

“Loads of fun. Whistler is having an amazing season right now and Core Camps is a great way to experience it! The owner/camp director Turner makes sure things run smoothly, the instruction is great (with video analysis every week), there are fun social events, and you're sharing a house with an international crew of powder hounds! While I was there, there were Brazilian, Dutch, Irish, Scottish, American, Australian, German, Korean and Swiss folk! And of course, a Canadian (me). Like the title says, loads of fun!"

Daniel - Canada - 1 week camp (age 28)

“Best time of my life! I am from the most northern community in North America and I first went to Core Camps in 2012. Then went back again in 2015! It was the best experience of my life! I've really improved my riding. Coaches are fun and they know the best spots on the mountain."

Etuangat (Kyle) Akeeagok - Very Northern Canada - 2 week camp and 4 week camp (age 18)

“Best snowboard camp in the world. I´ve been with Core twice and I will be back for sure! The director of the camp will make sure that you have the best of whistler ,the coaches are really good snowboarders and you will be riding the best places."

Jeffrey - Brazil - Japan Camp and Whistler Camp x 2 (age 31)

“Best experience on the snow. I've been with Core twice now, in Whistler and Argentina and would do it again! If you like getting off the groomers, improving your skiing/boarding while trying new things and having a great time with awesome people while riding the best pow, this is the camp to do! My personal experiences with Turner and Marcos have been great. I'll be back!"

Johan - Colombia - Argentina and Whistler Camps (age 29)

“Core Camps Argentina. Wow is the best way I can think to start this review what a trip. The location for the accommodation was great mixture of local culture close to the shops and restaurants. Combing with local insider knowledge from Marcos with Turner running this camp the same way as whistler as combing the cross between the feeling of having fun with old friends and family while meeting and hanging out with new like minded friends. On the hill you a wanting to push yourself because you want to keep up some days making you the better skier or rider back up with the support of both highly talented / trained coaches. Don't wait just go this was my third trip and would go again in a heart beat."

Jesse and Mali - Australia - Argentina and Whistler Camps (age 30)

“Amazing week of POWDER!! It's was the second time I was doing Core camp and it was as good if not better then the first time (more powder :D). They have great ski coachs that are always able to help you to improve your skiing in any type of condition (even if you are already a good skier and you have skied all your life) and they bring you to some really nice place you wouldn't be able to go alone! The group is amazing and it's fun to stay in their rider house! Thanks for everything Turner and for the coaching Marcos!! It was really fun to ski all those places with you during an amazing week of powder!"

Zak - 1 x 2 week camps - Canada (age 18)

“Shred Gnar With Core! I came across Core Camps website on the internet a few years back when I was looking for a way to improve my freestyle snowboarding. I have since attended 3 separate week long camps and they NEVER disappoint. The camp's owner Turner, is a Whistler local and all around awesome dude! He knows all the secret lines and pow stashes in Whistler that only a local would know. Not only is he a great snowboarder, he is super organized and highly responsive when it comes to taking bookings and arranging accommodations. I literally don't think I have ever waited more than an hour or two for a response to an email inquiry. The best part of being in camp with Core is definitely the experience of spending a week riding with a group of like-minded people. Everyone is just there to focus on riding and having a good time. You meet some great people from all over, and snowboarding with the group pushes you to step outside your comfort zone and try new things. You will be super stoked as you stomp that first cliff or cornice drop. Even when you head to the pub at night everyone is still amped and talking about the various tricks they worked on throughout the day. I have seen vast improvement in my riding due to my experience with Core. I can't recommend Turner and Core Camps highly enough. If you are on the fence, definitely sign up, you won't regret it. My only regret is that I don't have more than a week off to spend there each year!"

Raj - Canada - 3 times now (age 26)

“The best winter experience you can get! For anyone looking for a snowboard/ ski camp, Core is definitely the one to go! I have joined the camp twice for a longer period of time and it is basically the best time I've ever had. The coaches are all crazy shredders. Following them around the mountains, trying to keep up and do the same stuff they do, will improve your riding immensely. They will make it possible for you to do a lot of crazy stuff you would never be able to do on your own, and take you to places you would never find. Combine this with a group of like-minded people to hang out and party with, on and off the mountain, and you will have the best time of your life!"

Bas - Netherlands - 4 week and 8 week camp (age 21)

“Immerse yourself in whistler life! Such a good experience both on and off the mountain. Your riding improves dramatically with coaching each day and huge mountains to explore. This camp attracts great people and really gives you a sense living in whistler and experiencing everything this town has to offer! Will definitely head back."

Ryan - Australia - 3 week camp (age 22)

“Highly recommend. Core camps makes you feel at home. You will have an amazing time even if conditions are bad. They have knowledgeable instructors, a great atmosphere, and amazing customer service. I had an amazing 1 week trip and plan to go back again. If you are looking for a winter ski/snowboard camp, this is the one to pick."

Kaylam - Canada - 1 week camp (age 18)

“PERFECT. I have one word that describes Core Camps Whistler – Perfect. I would not change a second of my staying there. The couches, the mountain, the house, the office, the campers, the Village, everything was great. The couches gives you the confidence to push your limits and improve your hiding. If you love snowboarding that’s definitely the place to go."

Fernando - Brazil - 2 week camp (age 25)

“McShredder and Arnies. Had an epic time with the core team out in whistler! Will never forget my time there. And got some serious shredding done!! Well worth it if ur a keen and budding snowboarder or skier."

Ali - Scotland - 4 week camp (age 27)

“Fantastic. I had an awesome week in whistler with a fantastic group of lads and coaches. Improved heaps, onwards and upwards for core camps"

Adam - Australia - 1 week camp (age 31)

“Unforgettable Experience. My experience at Core Camps was truly unforgettable, I was with the camp for 11 weeks in the 2014/2015 season. My snowboarding improved so much over the 11 weeks - learning and doing so many things I didn't think I would ever do. Turner and the coaches really helped make my Core Camp experience with their immense knowledge of snowboarding and the Whistler Blackcomb mountain area - with their knowledge came many secret spots where you could find untouched runs of powder or terrain that I didn't even know existed. I went into the camp not knowing anyone as a solo traveller however made so many friends for life, which made my experience even more enjoyable. The camp in all aspects was beyond what I imagined and truly had an unforgettable time, I would recommend it as a must for anyone interested in skiing or snowboarding."

Tilly - Australia - 11 week camp (age 20)

“Killin' it. I had the pleasure of riding with this group for a week in March. From the start, communications with Turner, the owner/founder, was friendly and inviting with fast response times. The accommodations were superb and living with a group of equally enthusiastic campers really added to the experience. Riding with the coaches was amazing. Their knowledge of the mountain, ability to gauge your skill level, and offer instruction to help you improve was very valuable. My riding confidence has greatly improved over the short week I spent there. If you want to improve your snowboarding and enjoy hanging out with awesome people, then this camp is for you. My only regret is not staying longer."

Derrick - USA - 1 week camp (age 25)

“Awesome Time. I spent four weeks at Core Camps in Whistler and I had such a great time. My snowboarding improved so much and I had fun on the slopes every day. Everybody is so positive and helpful there. The coaches try to push you to make new experiences and to improve your riding. They show you secret powder spots which are incredible. Worth to go there, great recommendation!"

Sylvia - Switzerland - 4 week camp (age 20)

“An awesome experience I will never forget ! I first visited Core camps in the season of 2010/2011. The coaches know the mountains really well and they improved my riding by a lot! They showed me a new way of looking at the mountain and how to ride it having as much fun as possible. I came back again in the season of 2012/2013 for more pow and also got my instructor levels thanks to the help of the very helpful feedback by the director of Core camps. I definitely recommend this camp to anyone who likes to ski or snowboard."

Marjan - 12 week camp and 12 week camp - Netherlands (age 19)

“Whistler Blackcomb Spring 2015. Great place to improve and enjoy snowboarding, my kid had a great time, Turner and the staff were very professional and fun. Definitely we will send them again."

Santiago - Mexico - 2 week camp (age 16)

“A great way to get to know whistler blackcomb. I spent a week with the crew at core in whistler this season and it was a fantastic experience. The guides know the two mountains inside out and were super helpful in improving my riding in the short time I had. Special thanks to turner for his tireless efforts. I will definitely be back!"

Raj - Australia - 1 week camp (age 25)

“My British Columbian snowboarding dream became true!!! And I definitely want to taste this feeling again! Well, I still can't realize how this experience was so good, so magical, such a blessing! It's like I found myself there. There's no better place when you're passionate about snowboarding and trusty about riding your snowboard on freaking unbelievable snow! Yes man, we are talking about British Columbian snow, one the topest location in the world along with Alaska and Japan. Such a paradise! Everything is all good there. The spirit between the different riders, between the coaches, between the Core Camp staff was so great! The pedagogy is on point! The only thing you can do is improve your skills such the motivation is great between the riders and especially due to Core Camp professionalism. Honestly, you feel how those guys (Core Camp staff) have such an amazing experience, know-how, expertise, it's their craft that's it that's all! For example, most of the coaches are still, or are used to be pro-riders which is meaningful in term of knowledge. The housing is perfect, everything is made for your comfort, and the only thing you have to take care about and focus on is your riding progression! The whole Core Camp environment and facilities make you want to charge more on your snowboard! I've never felt such motivation to ride so far! That's why I'm saying it's a dream to be there. It's seem obvious that I want to return there. Moreover, you will meet many people who are there for their second or third time. After that experience some people even made the choice to come live here! It's clear that those two facts are meaningful and speak by themselves! If you're either a snowboard passionate or a beginner, it's definitely worth it! In both cases you will find the appropriate match. Don't hesitate and book your trip there!"

Amine - France - 2 week camp (age 25)

“PARADISE IN A WINTER WONDERLAND. When you look for a winter adventure camp you need to ask yourself 2 things : 1) are you ready to be put in the most majestic scenery with the knowledge and skill to conquer anything you set your sights on? 2) are you willing to be open minded and make potential lifelong friends and family? If you said yes to both of those you might as well get ready to book off the next 3 years of vacation time to go to core camps because once you go; it's an addiction only they can fix! There is a reason the return rate is so high; the staff are very educational, playful and have the best intentions when they help you achieve great things on the mountain. Management performance is always top notch. Housing is fabulous, it will become your family away from home for the time being there. It was my first snowboarding camp and I had to return 3 weeks later because I loved it so much. I will be returning again next winter season it's a guarantee. NOW Is the time to book your flights to paradise in a winter wonderland."

Alexandra - Canada - 1 week camp (age 23)

“Amazing experience. March 2015 was my second trip with Core Camps, and it was every bit as good as my first trip (December 2013). Amazing coaches (Oli, for this trip) who really push you out of your comfort zone and progress your riding and take you on adventures all over the mountains. Most campers are solo, the houses are clean and comfy. Everyone is so friendly and encouraging. I can't recommend them highly enough. I went back for seconds, I can think of no higher praise :) If you are considering Core Camps, just do it. You won't regret it."

Philip - Ireland - 2 x 2 week camps (age 32)

“Incredible This was my second time going on vacation by myself and I had simply the best of times! Everybody in Core Camps was constantly kind and friendly, and we had a great time together. My skiing improved a great deal as well and I also got my CSIA Level 1 during my stay. Everybody was awesome while riding or in the activities after, whether they be Video Analysis night or going out with your friends. Overall a super fun experience which I hope to someday be able to repeat, and maybe stay for a bit longer than a month this time if possible."

Condrado - Argentina - 4 week camp (age 18)

“Awesome! I was at Core for a month in 2015 and had such a great time. My snowboarding progressed even more than I had hoped for and made a heap of great friends along the way. If you want to progress your riding and have a great time riding with new friends then Core is the place for you. I'll definitely be back next season (hopefully for a longer stay)!!!"

Alex - Australia - 4 weeks and 7 weeks camps (age 27)

Hi Turner. By way of feedback, I probably don't need to say this as you already know, but Marcos was fabulous - I learnt so much from him, not just about skiing technique, but also about reading the mountain, how to find the best snow, and how to handle/approach different situations. And even though he would see it all the time, his genuine enthusiasm to be taking us out on fresh snow days was contagious. My impression was that he really wanted make sure you got the most out of the experience and had the best time possible, that it wasn't just a job for him. I look forward to seeing you on our next snow adventure.

Anna - Australia - 1 x 3 week camps (age 29)

Thanks to ye guys, had an amazing time. Chris and I had a chat one day, and Core and Whistler is so good it's made most other boarding experiences a disappointment. (Meant in the most positive of ways). Brilliant to board with you. It's mad thinking back on all the cool stuff we did in two weeks. I've just tried to explain a cornice to my Mum. She thinks its some sort of foot ailment. Anyway I am delighted with my progress, think I am a much improved boarder from when I first joined the camp. My only advice is keep up the good work, and hopefully I'll be back in Whistler again soon. Thanks again to everyone who makes the camp so special. Happy Christmas

Thomas - Ireland - 2 x 2 week camps (age 27)

Hey turner, thanks for having me, it was a blast! Everything and more than I expected! The weather was awesome, just a little bit cold but it was still unreal. Thanks again Turner and the core camps team!

Michael - Canada - 1 week camp (age 26)

Hey Turner, Thanks for everything! I had an incredible experience with Core Camps and I am definitely looking at coming back next season. The two weeks I spent in Whistler have made it very difficult to come home to university study and work.

Sophie - Australia - 2 week camp (age 23)

Turner, I just had to drop a line and let you know what a fantastic time Rod had. Clearly you have a great group of people there because he hasn't stopped telling us all about everyone! Thank you so much for truly giving him the experience of a lifetime, I'm pretty sure you have created a core camper or life! We are at Marmot right now and he couldn't wait to tell us and show us all he had learned. I can't thank you enough for everything you and your team taught him. Rod will definitely be back, he's already planning it!

Rod (message from his Mom, Kari) - Canada - 1 week camp (age 15)

We had a great time at Core camp! All of your planning for us was perfect. Your staff were all extremely pleasant and friendly. We enjoyed our ski days even with the crazy weather and made new friends. Thanks for the experience. You may see us again, hopefully we will meet. Thanks again!

Debbie and Brian - USA - 1 week camp (age 58)

I had awesome two weeks here in Whistler. It is a great idea to join the Camp

Karoline - Austria - 2 week camp (age 20)

Hi Turner I had, hands down, the best season of my life!!! Thank you soon much! Cheers,

Luca - Switzerland - 6 week camp (age 22)

"Hey Turner I had a stupidly amazing time! Remember when I said at the start of camp that my main objective was to improve my skiing, and everything else would be a bonus? I believe my skiing has improved considerably, but knowing everyone (especially you and Marcos) was definitely my best takeaway. You are one brilliant camp owner, I must say! I hope that we will keep in touch. I most certainly will. I cannot remember the last time I feel the same way after a holiday!"

Jeff - UK - 3 week camp (age 33)

"Hi Turner Best decision of my life coming to Core! It’s a real struggle settling back down into Sydney life now though; all I can think about is coming back to Whistler. I’m very keen to do core camps again next season and at this stage it looks like I’ll come back in December and will stay for longer this time (maybe 5 weeks or so). Thanks again for such an awesome experience!"

Alexandra - Australia - 2 times at camp (age 26)

The Camp was ridiculous value for money and will definitely be back for a longer stretch next season. [he did, for 3 weeks] Big thanks to Turner, Marcos and the rest of team. The Core Camp experience was definitely the highlight of our Canadian adventure. Stayed with Core Camps for a week in early January 2017. The camp was absolutely fantastic. Turner and his team go out of their way to ensure you have the best time and push you to improve in a challenging but fun environment. Turner goes out of his way to make sure your time is hassle free. He offers invaluable advice not only about the mountain but also getting around Canada in general (from where to stay, other mountains to ski, the best bars in Whistler). Core definitely goes out of their way to help you out no matter the problem. As a slightly older skier (30 yr old) I was hesitant that I was a little old for the camp crowd, especially as we stayed in the rider house. However, this was not a problem at all. All the campers were great, and the ages were very mixed. We had a great crew from all over the world and the accommodation is ridiculously close to the mountain for the price. His team of instructors are the best I have come across. Marco (my camp instructor) was a wealth of knowledge not only on technique to improve but also showing us the best part of the mountain, from the hidden tree stashes to drops to the best spots on powder days. The skiing was hard and fast, pushed me out of my comfort zone without being suicidal. Marco's enthusiasm was infectious and his knowledge of the mountain second to none. I can safely say I learnt more in my week with Core Camps than I have since being a beginner ski (which was a long time ago).

There is nothing else in the world that makes me so happy, than these moments when ride the first line into the fresh, light powder while the sun is shining right into your heart and some nice tunes are whispering in your ears. Awesome people, awesome spirit, awesome daylong days in the snow and an incredible life experience! Whistler changed me /Whistler made me realize!

I really did have the time of my life ‘living the Whistler dream’ and being welcomed into a new core family :) I’m already looking back on photos and missing all the amazing times I had. Hope you enjoy the rest of the spring fun, I’ll be in touch along the way! King regards,

Hi Turner, Thank you again for everything. I really enjoy the camp a lot, I’ve learned much more than what I had expected and I had a great time at the house. Thank you also a lot for your time. I'd really love to be back! I didn't want to leave and I miss the camp a lot. But I really hope to be there next season. Thanks a lot for everything again. Sincerely,

Aye weel min, Im nae bad. Yoursel? I had an amazing four weeks. So glad I extended my stay. I’m already thinking about next year. I have definitely caught the powder bug.

Hello Turner, That's it, I am on the bus leaving Whistler. I wanted to thank you again for the amazing time I spent with you and your staff at Core Camps. The snow was fantastic and the advices given useful. I will try to come back next season, probably in order to attempt a new trick (frontside 540). All the best

Hey Turner, I had a fantastic time at Whistler and with everyone at Core camps. You've done a real excellent job of setting up a camp that is run so well and with awesome people. Look forward to planning another trip to Whistler and a session or two with Core when I'm there. Cheers,

Hi Turner, Kyle arrived home late last night and the first thing he did upon wakening was show us the videos and pictures. He had a great time and plans to do it again. Kyle spoke very highly of you, his home stay and Core Camps. Thank you for taking such good care of him and making all of this so easy. You have a wonderful program!

Hi Turner, I know I speak for the both of us when I say that our trip to Canada was the best board experience we've had so far! We did things we were not used to do back in Europe, and opened our eyes and brings new possibilities. The tree runs and the fresh powder was so much fun. I'm looking back the pictures and movies with a really big smile on my face. It was really awesome and exhausting as well riding with El David, Melancon and you.

It was above and beyond what I hoped for, don't know how to put it into words . Anyway words are cheap - you spent time with me you know what it meant to me. I respect you all and think the holiday you provide for the cost is to be admired. My warmest regards to you and your staff. You are all in my thoughts often and I look forward to next year.

Hi Turner, It was a pleasure to join you for two weeks and jump day was possibly the best day I have ever had!

Thanks Buddy. It was the best time of my life. So much fun every day. I'm coming back for sure this summer and again in the wintertime. If I could I would never leave but that’s not the case. But then there is always next year and the year after that… And thank you for having such a cool camp. Got so many new fantastic friends and skills. Looking out of the window every day at the snow and want to go snowboarding peak to creek. Say hello to everybody that I still know in camp and have a blast everyday even without me. "meh"

Hey Turner: thank you for putting together this awesome camp. truly I can say, I had the best snowboarding experience ever. Great group of coaches and fellow campers. I made lots of good friends that I hope will become lifelong friends. never had a dull moment. I think everybody will agree that the only bad thing is having to leave camp. I’ve definitely seen improvements in my riding so thank you very much for that. I got over some of my fear of heights, built confidence on jumps and spins, and I still can't believe I was able to do some park riding. attending your camp was the key I’ve accomplished more in the 3 weeks I spent at camp than in the 5 years I’ve been riding.

Hey Turner, I wanted to thank you so very much for a for letting me come hang with CORE again... what an incredible two weeks!!. You've always made me feel so welcome amongst some truly amazing and gifted riders... I am grateful for that. Bounce was a blast... I'm glad I had a bit more energy in the evenings to join everyone this year. I met some really great people this trip...It really makes a difference when you can share your love of riding with some truly awesome individuals. That is one of the reasons why I love coming back to CORE camp. Thank you again Turner... once again CORE camp was one sweet holiday!! P.S.

Learnt at Core: "finally stomped 360s, half-cabs, general switch riding, more confidence on rails and boxes and some decent-sized airs" Best experiences: "landing those evasive 360s and tearing up some untouched powder." "I've been riding for about 10 years, but as I only get a week or two a year it's hard to progress (forget about trying any of the mountains in the UK). Although I only spent a week at Core, the attentiveness and tuition of the coaches helped me improve a lot in just five days. I can't rate the coaches highly enough. You get to board and ski with the best… To really get the most out of Core you need longer, which I'll be doing next year. The social side of Core is a big part of the fun too. Great people and good times. See you in 2012"

I had some experience in snowboarding and I knew about the most aspects of it but when we started riding, Core Camps opened another world for me. I really thought I knew what powder meant but I clearly didn't. I also never thought I would be jumping off cliffs and trying to find new zones through trees. I came into it with a different goal but that goal changed through the season and I'm happy it did. I feel more comfortable pushing my limits and I'm stoked to be at the level where I am now.

Liked how you were always looking to keep things exciting for us and I can tell you many other campers commented on how YOU give Core something other courses don't seem to have (proven to me with my friend's experience). The technical instruction was great also...something for me to keep working on! Guides Javier & Dave were wonderful, showed us some wicked lines, got a great feel for Whistler mountain.

"Thanks, it was well worth it. Everything I expected and more. I learnt a lot at camp, my riding has definitely improved and it was great to finally ride powder. I've shown people the video footage and most of them don't believe it’s me at first, even the box! In fact I'm now seriously considering doing a season. Cheers."

“Back to reality and have to say last week was tough settling back. What can I say, the camp is unique in that everything is covered and the attention to detail is superb.I have done plenty of tours all over the world and this one tops it probably because the buzz of snowboarding is so good. Certainly next year I would like to continue to progress particularly jumping…keep up the good work. Your friend,”

I remember how I struggled to get down some of the very steep runs to chairs that they have in Europe. This time round I just carved down them so well. I felt nice and low in my stance and really balanced. The friend I was meeting there commented on it after our 1st run. He couldn't believe the change since the last time we rode together. He thought it was a different person, so thank you for that. Thanks again for a great week. Chances are I'll be back that your way again soon.”

Also I wanted to say thank you not only for the opportunity to ride along side yourself, Clot and Dane (whom showed impeccable riding knowledge) but equally to the hardcore riders in the crew whom by pushing themselves every day to the max gave me belief and confidence in my own riding abilities. Now I just wanna kick ass all the time on my snowboard and take those cornice drops with 0 fear, and enter the terrain park with growing confidence. Lots of laughs, great memories... it was by far one of the best snowboarding experiences I have had, and I look forward to coming back for another ripping season and slaying some of that famous Whistler pow and pillows with the crew again soon!!!! Take care, bro.”

“Best snowboarding trip of my life by far. We both had a great time. Your pros Clot and Etienne are top notch, they pushed to do things we would not normally do and gave us many valuable pointers. They’re both sick riders and good people as well. The house was perfect, good kitchen, nice open living room and being around other riders from different parts of the world added to the experience. Me and Danny took a trip to Vermont this weekend and while the snow is good, it’s a little bitter sweet when we just rode the terrain at Whistler. Thanks again Turner, we hope to be back next year. ”

When I got back home, the really hard black runs seemed so much easier than I remember, which means I must have improved more than I realized while I was in Whistler. The Camp was great, even for an old man like me. I particularly enjoyed doing the 2 jumps days, because I never had the powder to go off anything that big before. Thanks.”

I would never have had the confidence to do it without you guys so thanks for pushing me :) Great instructors, brilliant set up and plans are afoot for next year.

"Thanks for a great week riding in Whistler. The coaching you provided together with the video analysis was just right. Despite the short time I was with you, I feel I was taken out of my comfort zone that I'd been riding in for far too long. It ultimately got me doing the backside 360 I'd thought was unachievable at the beginning of the week as well as nailing numerous other tricks and finding the places on the mountain that I'd normally not know about. Riding with the three amigo's and Hiro in such a small group was more than entertaining and their ability meant that I was pushed all the way from start to finish of the camp. Fingers crossed you'll see me back in the future."

I really hate to return from holidays, even more when I'm coming back from a place like Whistler and after meeting people like you, Vince, Steve and all the friends I've made at Core Camps. The whole week I've spent at the camp has been amazing since the beginning; from the fresh powder and cliffs of the first days to the flat tricks, the spins and 'old school' grabs at the park and, of course, don't forget the beers and the nachos. As I told you days ago, I've never jumped so much in my 17 years as a snowboarder (I wish I have started earlier) and I’ve never seen so much snow in my entire life, AWESOME!!. And now you have given me the keys to improve my jumping and tricks technique so I hope to see you next year and show you my new 'snowboarding style' and step to the next level. I'm also cleaning the dust of my old Disco records to win more points for the weekly music contest.Thanks again for everything!!!!!!!!! "

They were great in instilling me with the confidence to try out all sorts of jumps, drops, new terrain and tricks I never thought to try. But what I will remember the most was how laid back the experience was. I felt it was more like a bunch of buddies getting together for a day's riding and this is what I valued the most. Not the typical school I came to expect. Thanks for the incredible time - bring on the next season!"

"I was in Core Snowboard Camps for 2 months. I was nervous because my English was basic, but the coaches spoke a little Japanese so I felt comfortable every day. The coaches know Whistler and Blackcomb very well. We rode secret and cool snowboarding spots. For example: with a small hike, we rode untracked an powder bowl. Some days we made backcountry jumps. We did tree runs, small cliff and of course terrain parks and half-pipes. I could choose from many levels of jumps and rails in the park, so it was easy to progress. In the evenings I liked going to the sports gym for strength training, swimming and relaxing in a big hot tub. Sometimes at night we went to a pub. I could practice speaking English with everyone. It was super fun. I want to join again next season. Thank you."

Message to all skiers from a Swiss guy skiing for the last 16 years – “Core Camp is for me a great thing for skiers from all levels. The coaches are pushing you in such a good way, and if you try to do what they say to you, you will get fast into a higher ski level. So take the chance, go to Whistler BC, make some friends, meet and ride with professional skiers, and you will have lots of snow. And that’s all you need for one of the best ski seasons of your life...”

Ciril - Switzerland - 3 week camp (age 19)

Hey Turner! I had an amazing time this trip. I felt like 3 weeks was perfect to not only enjoy the mountain in different weather but to also see a progression in my skiing. I'm really excited for the chance to come back in December 2013. (this is going to be the greatest year of my life ;) And by the way, Marcos is an excellent coach as well. I really enjoyed skiing with him the last week. I learned a lot, got into some new territory, and had a blast doing it.

It really is a great camp that you offer, especially with the great coaches that you have involved with it and I learnt so much during my two weeks, especially in the park.

Hope Flo and the others are settling in and throwing massive tricks by now! Javi was great and very technical - always paying attention to small details. We also benefited a lot from Javi’s local knowledge of the mountains - I really appreciated him personally taking time to bring me up to a massive run off the Blackcomb glacier (which was just awesome). Also, because the ski groups were slightly smaller I felt we got a lot out of it. Overall, it was a great experience - very happy! Send my regards to Javier!"

Words are kind of hard to describe the experience of being there, and everything that went on to make that 6 weeks so memorable. Still remembered the first night I arrived, got to hang out with the Core campers already there, even though 5 minutes before meeting them, I didn't know anyone really. Great start, to be able to be in a group with others who were keen/passionate about snow. Then in the days that followed, it was great to be pushed by the coaches. Am definitely happy that I got to do a lot of firsts in several things. And things like those powder days, backcountry touring, cat skiing, jump days, park sessions, skiing un-named lines.... Cheers"

Whistler and especially Core Camps is the best place to be if you love skiing and a great group atmosphere! The coaches are wicked, they’ll show you the best spots on the mountains and bring your skiing to the next level and maybe further! If you want to have the best time of your life on skis, join Core Camps!!!”
