Fundamentals Camp

NOTICE: New 2018 Update. Okemo Mountain, Ludlow VT. December 10 to 14, 2018.

The Fundamentals Camp is a 5-day overnight camp held at Okemo Mountain.

This camp is focused on developing a strong body position. Athletes will do a series of progressions to help achieve an athletic/balanced stance. We will do this by incorporating different drills on easier terrain as well as trying to log a lot of miles on snow. Athletes will start on SL skis and transitions to GS skis by the end of camp. Gate training may be introduced at the end of the week depending on quality of snow and availability of lanes.

Athletes are on snow between 9am and 3pm each day. After skiing they head back to the house to rest, eat, and go to bed early. Athletes will have designated hours in which they have to work on homework.

Athletes will stay at a local residence in Ludlow, VT under the supervision of a coach and at least one parent chaperone. 

WHEN:  December 10th to December 14th, 2018 (subject to weather).
WHO: U14 and older (U12 athletes with parent/guardian as needed)
COST: estimated at $675
