What We Do

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.

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.)
