Am I too old to go to camp? Heck no! Last year we had 111 adults come to our camp including nine campers over the age of 65. For the most part, adults experience the same things as the kids at our camp: Excellent training & coaching, daily video analysis, and an array of afternoon activities to choose from. test
Race CampTrain SL and GS with the latest in World Cup techniques. Daily video taping on breakaway courses. Learn drills and skills to break old habits and learn to take advantage of developing equipment technology. We get many adult campers who race on the Masters USSA circuit. There's even a mid-summer USSA Masters race on the Palmer Glacier each July. Click the link for details on the annual summer race: http://www.summerfunnationals.com It's on the weekend, so you can get in a full week of training gates right before the races. Adults can sign up for any of the sessions that we offer to kids during our summer, fall, winter, or spring camp, but if training with the kids is not your cup of tea, we also offer an exclusive ADULTS ONLY session during the the last week of summer. We'll even let you open up a beer during your afternoon video analysis session!!
Mogul CampOur mogul/aerials program for our Adult campers offers training for every level of skier. The mogul program is lift access from the Palmer chairlift on the upper Palmer Snowfield. During your session, we will help you to improve your mogul skiing by teaching you the solid fundamentals and correct technique for jump execution. Your goals will be assessed and a safe and successful progression will be planned for you to achieve the best results. Daily Video taping/analysis, an invaluable tool in the learning process. From mogul technique, to learning new aerial tricks, all skiers will develop new skills. Our 1/2 mile long mogul lane is shaped by snowcat and finished by hand to make mogul terrain equal to 3 World Cup courses stacked on top of each other. Our mogul coach may even take the group over to our race lanes for a run or two of slalom or GS to get a taste of ski racing as well.
Freeski Camp - We know there are a few adults out there that have taken on the challenge of ski area terrain parks! Come here to hone your skills on the various jumps, boxes and rails. You'll get personalized coaching, video analysis and have a great time learning new tricks.
Snowboard Camp - Adults snowboard too! We dont' get a ton of adult snowboarders at our camp, but the ones that come always have a great time and improve their riding skills. We work on the basic fundamentals of snowboarding, correct stance, carving, jumping, boxes and rails. Whatever you want to learn on a snowboard.
