WMSC Blackcomb Summer Camp
This year's Blackcomb summer ski camps will run as 4 separate blocks running on the weekdays with the weekends off. Cost will be $625 per 5 day block and includes lift tickets, coaching, video (uploaded to your Sprongo account) and afternoon dryland activites.
July 2 – 6 Session #1 - GS Basics and fundamentals
July 9 -13 Session #2 - SL Basics and fundamentals
July 16-20 Session #3 - GS Advanced techniques and tactics
July 23-27 Session #4 - SL Advanced techniques and tactics
"Basics and fundamentals" - essential foundation building sessions, patterned after National Team strategies (even the best racers in the world will spend many days in slow motion, refining and patterning the building blocks of a great technique before adapting into gates).
"Advanced Tactics and Techniques" - recommended for those with several days of skiing since April. Timing will be used often for athletes to see instant feedback of speeds as they experiment with new lines and tactics.
There is room for 36 athletes, so space is limited and early registration highly recommended on a first come, first serve basis.
