Mammoth Mountain Speed Skills Camp

Mammoth Mountain, Ca May 16-21

American Downhiller is pleased to announce our second annual speed skills camp, the premiere ski camp in the country for learning how to safely and effectively ski fast.  This camp is open to junior ski racers aged U14 and older.

Our All-Star coaching lineup is returning to pass on their knowledge of life and ski racing learned from years of experience on the World Cup Tour.

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.

Our camp also includes motivational talks from one of our Olympian coaches every evening.  Training secrets and racing strategy advice from our Olympians will be shared in abundance as well.

Specific Details

Includes:  Transportation to and from airport in Reno,  Lodging, Lift tickets, World Cup caliber coaching and demonstration, daily dryland training,  3 home cooked and healthy meals a day plus on hill snacks and hydration, American Downhiller Hat and t-shirt.   

Travel:  Arrival day in Mammoth is May 16th.

For those flying, please book flights into Reno Tahoe International Airport arriving no later than 2pm on Wednesday May 16.

The return flight can either be on Monday, May 21 after 5pm or on the 22nd in the early morning for those flying East.

Accommodations:

We will be staying at the Mammoth Mountain Inn which is slope-side lodging.  Most rooms are double occupancy so athletes will be staying with one other camper of similar age and the same gender.

Meals will be prepared by our private chef, three meals a day plus on-hill snacks and hydration will be provided.

Tuning rooms are available at the Mammoth Mountain Inn and we will provide benches, vices and irons.  Athletes should come prepared with a small kit of their own tuning tools and wax.

Dryland will take place daily at the park in town.  Athletes should come prepared to play games, swim, stretch and sweat!
