Short answer: Absolutely do it. It will be the best $109 you ever spent.
But, bumpfreaq wouldn't have wanted me to post a short answer...
I took the one day Jamboree each of the previous two years. Each time I got into the top group after the morning split. That's not a boast. I suck in the bumps. I mention that to emphasize that the program is aimed at recreational skiers who want to improve their bump skiing, or like me, who can't get enough bumps. I also mention that because Bob Barnes (not epicski's yoda, but a yoda nevertheless) normally takes out the top group. Two years ago he wasn't there for some reason. My instructor, Greg, was a gifted skier, and a capable teacher, but Bob is the rightful head of the ski school.
Bob himself is in his mid to upper fifties; I'm 63. I think the youngest of the group was in her 30s. While Greg, two years ago, imparted great knowledge and took my bump skiing up a couple of notches, Bob completely revamped my style and approach. So much so, that after the day's instruction I had to return to the easiest of bump runs to practice totally new habits. Unfortunately, the remainder of the week I was up at WP had a number of mornings in which new, pesky snow had fallen. Having to deal with powder kept me from working on the new movement patterns . By the end of my last weekend of the season, up at Mammoth a couple of weeks later, I began to show some real dividends. But the new patterns are far from ingrained. Old habits die hard.
So, what did Bob teach? He emphasizes a slippy, slidy, two-footed stance that is very energy efficient. Particularly for these 63 year old legs. (However, this thread: http://www.epicski.com/t/128891/how-are-you-conditioning-yourself-for-the-ski-season has my legs in better shape than in forever.) When I get all of Bob's tips incorporated, I would conservatively estimate that I will be able to spend at least twice as much time in any given day dedicated to the bumps. The slippy, slidy technique may not win points in a competition, but those skiers aren't at these camps anyway.
To illustrate how impressed I am by the camp/jamboree: I am passing on a Far West Ski Association week up at Whistler/Blackcomb and an opportunity to ski with my all-time favorite ski buddies from Mississippi (of all places), to attend the three day camp Feb. 4-6. Fortunately, Dick and Barbara are not epicski lurkers, so won't know that I ditched them for the WP camp. Now, if I get Bob again, and he can make it so that Barbara doesn't have to wait for me at the bottom of every run...
