A blast around a glacier in the height of summer appealed to us even before we read Chris Moran's guide to summer shredding, and ever since then we've been positively gagging for one.

It isn't helping our mood, then, to see the Billabong guys having such a ruddy brilliant time at Whistler's Camp of Champions:

With on-and-off-hill good times for a whole week, the likes of Bode Merrill, Scot Brown, Rube Goldberg and Taylor Godber were living it up in BC. Alex Duckworth and Garrett Warnick experienced the joy of shredding in shorts; if you've never tried it, you really must.

"Best week eveh" is the verdict of our favourite Kiwi, Possum Torr - and it looks like she might be right.
