Spring/Summer Camps 2016
The goal of the WMSC spring training, spring and summer camps and fall training camps is to develop the technical and tactical components of ski racers that will be retained and transferred into next season.
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.

For optimum training, camp #1 will provide the best snow and less crowds on the glacier. All camps will be grouped by age/skill levels and will progress from basics and fundamentals to patterning and refining techniques – both in and out of courses. Includes lift ticket, coaching,video and afternoon dryland activities.
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.
Estimated Camp cost – excluding air: $6700 (exact costs TBD by numbers and exchange rates). Included: Accommodations, meals, lifts, ground transportation and coaching.
Flights: a group booking has been made for 12 tickets on United, routing Vancouver – Houston – Santiago. Cost is set at $1330/person.
Please contact Rob Boyd email@example.com for more information, to hold a flight and/or a camp spot. Space may be limited…
Early November camp will be in Sun Peaks
