NEWS: Nikita Iceland Park Project 2007 Cancelled
Published April 2007
We've just heard the sad news that the Nikita Iceland Park Project 2007 has been cancelled. The IPP's organisers have announced that due to some "unresolved issues" the camp will not be running at all this year. However, the founders of the IPP - Rob, Graham and Bjarni were keen to say that the camp would be running next year, and that this is certainly not the end of the most talked about ski and snowboard summer camp of the year.
The Iceland Park Project started in 2002, and has become an annual institution for professional and high level skiers and snowboarders, who make the pilgrimage out to the Snaefell Glacier each year to enjoy the 20 hours of sunshine and the unique moonscape scenery that is Iceland.
Last year, we spoke to Rob Wyke, one the founding members of the IPP, to discover how the idea was born from three frustrated park shapers' minds, who knew they had the knowledge, expertise and drive to create a glacier summer camp that would eclipse all others.
Here at SnowSphere Magazine, we sincerely hope this is just a temporary glitch in the matrix, and that the world's most unique summer snow camp will be back next year with their pioneering park.
