Training is available to any young ski racers born in 2008 or earlier.

Training groups will be split into the following stages of development according to the Canadian Sport for Life long term athlete development model. Athletes will be grouped and streamed into and within the stages of development according to age, experience and ability.

Learn to Train (8-11 yrs. of age)

Train to Train (11-16 yrs. of age)

Train to Compete (15-24 yrs. of age)

 

 

La Parva Chile – September 8 – 30, 2016

Weather models and forecasts predict a big ‘El Nino’ snow year in Chile this year… so we have set our dates (Sept 8 – 30) to take advantage of more lane/slope options, firmer snow and spring discounts on accommodations.

Recognizing the dates overlap with the start of school for many, we will have a tutor/coach on staff to help get a start on the academic front.

The camp will progress from freeskiing and drills to SL, GS, Super G and possibly some DH mileage – but speed elements training will be available at the least. A day trip or two to Santiago will offer some cultural experiences, souvenir shopping and some rest/recovery time at lower altitudes.

Camp cost – excluding air: $6500 Club Members, $7500 Guest racers.

Included: Accommodations, meals, lifts, ground transportation and coaching.

Trip Sheet – La Parva Sept 2016

Flights: $1310 Sept 8 – YVR – YYZ – SCL (+ 1day) . Return Sept 30 SCL – YYZ – YVR (+1day)
