This camp will have a focus on speed tactics, aerodynamics, and proper jumping technique. We will have 5 days on snow that will include free-skiing, specific terrain drills, jumping progressions and full length super G training.

Off snow our Olympian coaches will share their training secrets and also provide motivational presentations to help our young racers navigate their way through the world of ski racing.

ELIGIBILITY: U14- U21. (Athletes must fall into these age categories for the 2019-20 race season)

The exact list of coaches for 2019 will be confirmed as we get closer to camp.
