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 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.
