WATER RAMP FACILITY
The perfect off season training facility
The mission of the AFC Water Ramp Training Facility is to provide freestyle ski athletes a world class training environment where excellence of mind and body is essential to maximizing performance.
The Apex Freestyle Club’s water ramp was constructed in 2011 and was the first floating portable water ramp in the world. The unique ramp design was built on a 48 foot tri axel trailer making it totally portable, allowing the ramp to be moved to different locations utilizing landings on water, snow or air bags.
This year in a move to find a more permanent site for the ramp, the Apex Freestyle Club has made arrangements with Covert Farms near Oliver, BC. Covert Farms is a highly acclaimed 600 acre organic farm and vineyard. Within the confines of the farm lies a 16,900 square foot irrigation reservoir, the perfect venue for the AFC Water Ramp Training Facility. The new location is only 14 minutes from Oliver and 25 minutes from Penticton in the heart of the southern Okanagan’s wine country. Covert Farms offers a unique farm experience with markets, wine tasting and special events galore throughout the spring, summer and fall.
This makes the new AFC Water Ramp Training Facility the perfect off-season training center for the entire family. The sunny southern Okanagan Valley boasts over 2100 hours of sunshine and only 15 inches of rain annually allowing the AFC Water Ramp Training Facility to be open from May through October.
