Grab your boards and join Academy’s biggest and best travel skateboarding program ever! Travel across the state of Colorado with this legendary crew for a rippin’ road trip to the states premier skateboarding parks. You’ll ride the rails of Breckenridge, the asphalt of Aspen and the drops of downtown Denver, including a few roller coasters! To spice things up when we’re not conquering the concrete we will shred the sandy slopes of the Great Sand Dunes National Monument and even skate atop Pikes Peak at 14,000 feet! (Yep, there’s pavement up there). Along the way we’ll pack in even more adventure, soaking in natural hot springs, rafting the Arkansas River, riding an aerial tram to mystic caverns and spending each night in a unique and beautiful location “Academy style”. We’ve got street and sand waiting for us during this “Colo-radical” adventure.
