Dryland Training
We will have a variety of Dryland
training activities; among them
include: running, swimming, sport
games (such as soccer) and a variety
of calisthenics and exercise (such as
circuit & core strength training). We
are, however, primarily concerned
with getting down to the intricacies of
technical skiing and skill acquisition.
Therefore,our activities regarding
dryland training will be dictated by our
needs on the ski hill (i.e. after a long
day on the slopes.)
What to Bring
• Ski Equipment: slalom/giant slalom skis and poles (if you have both) and ski boots. Helmets-both SL
and GS-required for training and freeskiing.
• Goggles (required for gate training), sunglasses, sun-block, lip-block.
• Racing gear–helmets are required for GS training, mouth and/or face-protecting head-gear is required
for slalom training. Shin-guards and hand-guard protection are also required for
slalom training.
• Regular clothing: temperature and weather can vary dramatically in the mountains.
 Be prepared for
quite cool days/nights especially in Colorado (sweaters, long pants, jackets), warm days could demand

shorts and t-shirts and occasional rain gear (especially in Oregon).
• Other Stuff that you might not have thought of: Small back-pack for extra clothing, snacks, water
while on the mountain. Soft-sided lunch box if you want to pack snacks for the mountain, water bottle
(double size or liter works best), extra set of gloves, running shoes and work-out clothes for
dryland/physical training, swimsuit, alarm clock (each room has a radio/alarm clock and wake-up calls
––but some may need the extra alarm as a backup!).

What We Do
Whether at Mount Hood, or Vail, Colorado, our training day begins early.
In order to take advantage of special lane space, our training day will
typically begin at 8:00AM. The world class resorts of Timberline and Vail
are serviced by state-of-the-art lifts. On an average day, a racer can
expect to achieve 15-20 quality gate-training runs. This translates to
more gates, more practice and more learning. We divide our enrollment
into groups based on ability. We aim to achieve a ratio of 8-10 skiers per
coach. Each group develops from fundamentally based exercises with
directed free skiing and gate drills and rapidly progresses into full-on
gate training. You can expect to have training mates of your caliber
and/or often ones who challenge you to set your sights higher than your
present level. Typically, we have racers attending our camps form all
over the United States, Canada, and Europe.
