Mammoth Mountain Speed Skills Camp

AD CAMP 2020

Dates: May 16-21

Location: Mammoth Mountain, CA

The 4thAnnual American Downhiller Speed Skills Camp is coming back to Mammoth this Spring. The majority of our staff is already confirmed and it includes 10 Olympians, 2 former head World Cup speed coaches, the winningest American DH’er of all time and collectively the most fantastic gathering of people who love to go fast on two skis!

Our camp is focused on the basic principles of how to go as fast as you possibly can down a race course. Our coaches will pass on the knowledge accrued from the highest levels of racing to show the kids how to be fast, be safe,  and have a great time doing it!

This is a “speed skills” camp so the primary focus is to build the foundations for aerodynamics, terrain management, and speed tactics that will be used throughout all events not just downhill.

Our camp is open to racers who will be U14- U19 duing the 2020-21 racing season.  This is a broad range of ages but we essentially are running two camps in one. Each training day will feature two separate courses based on age/ability and our small coach/athlete ratio guarantees that every racer is getting the attention and training that they need. 

Travel Dates: Arrival day in Mammoth is Saturday, May 16.  We will then ski 5 consecutive days and depart on the afternoon of May 21stafter skiing. Flights into Reno on May 16th must arrive before 2:00pm and departure flights must depart after 5:00pm on May 21st.

Accommodations:  All athletes and coaches (except locals) will be staying at the Mammoth Mountain Inn which is a two minute walk to the chairlift.

Athlete Cost:

  • $2199* includes, lifts, lodging, all meals, transportation from and back to Reno Airport if needed, daily dryland training, daily video analysis, focused coaching and mentoring from Olympic athletes.
  • Local athlete: $1599 includes all camp activities with the exclusion of lodging and lift tickets.
