Don't Just Ski. TRAIN.

ALPINE SUMMER TRAINING CAMP AT BIG SNOW

AUGUST 7, 8 ,9 & 10, 2023

Attention Ski Racers, ages 10 to 18. Book early. Space is limited!

This three-day camp aims to allow ski racers from around the region to have access to summer training in slalom-specific drills and tactics. The camp will focus on alpine racing skills, technique, and fundamentals. We will be utilizing brushes and stubbies; and setting a variety of slalom courses for racers to carve turns, run gates and receive pointers. Athletes will have access to multiple drills and training courses on terrain ideal for obtaining and perfecting skills. Racers will be guided by high-level athletes and experienced race coaches. This is an excellent opportunity to get an edge up this summer, make friends, compete in a dual slalom and have fun.

THE CAMP IS OPEN TO ALL RACERS. We welcome NJISRA, NJSRA, NYSSRA, PARA, TARA, and VARA racers.

The camp will be conducted over 4 consecutive days between 8:30am and 12:00pm. We have an exceptional group of certified and experienced coaches excited to work with you. As usual, we will offer a strong coach-to-racer ratio.
