This is a great way to kick-off your ski season with the area’s top coaches helping you improve your skills. This camp is open to all ability levels: true beginner to advanced, there is something for everyone. Whether your goal is simply to learn to XC ski or to improve your race results in a competitive race, this is a camp for you. In order to meet skiers needs/desires, clinic groups will be divided by ability and group size will be small (you can expect 6 or less skiers to 1 coach). Skiers can choose clinics in Skating or Classic techniques, or both (we encourage skiers to clinic in both techniques).
Try before you buy Fischer, Salomon, Swix, Atomic, Rossignol and Toko industry representatives will be on site with all new 2013/2014 demo equipment (skis, boots, poles) waxes and clothing for you to try for yourself. This is an excellent opportunity to try the equipment and learn about products before you purchase.
On snow video analysis will be included. Video analysis is one of the best tools for improving technique and overall efficiency in your skiing. Last but not least skiers can look forward to hearty lunches, a fun and festive happy hour on Saturday afternoon and prize drawings both days.

Historically speaking Steamboat has some of the best December snow of the region and we’re planning on this again this year! However with warming trends across the nation, we may need to change venues (within Steamboat) to provide the best snow conditions for the camp. In the rare event there is insufficient snow to hold the camp (note – this has never happened!) we will refund 100% of camp fees. You will be notified via email or phone in either case.
