Donek Days


    Giri Watts & Special Guest, Ryan Knapton will host DONEK DAYS with Woodward® Copper for select 3 day experiences in January, February, March, and April.  This will be a semi-private group experience, with a maximum of 5 participants per session. Don’t miss a rare opportunity to slide with two riders on the cutting edge of snowboarding, helping to fuel the carving revolution in their own unique ways. 

    Giri is fully certified with the American Association of Snowboard Instructors, and works as an Educator with the Rocky Mountain Division of the organization. Based at Copper, he teaches snowboarding in winter, and is the Head Coach for Woodward Copper Summer Camp.

    Ryan Knapton is a YouTube sensation with an authentic passion for sharing the love of snowboarding.  He uses a refined foundation in competitive halfpipe/freestyle riding to inspire thousands of snowboarders daily with his contributions to the community.
