Alpine Mt. Hood Summer Camps

Morgan Kilmain

This summer Alpine program is spending three weeks in Mt Hood, OR. We have 35 athletes participating in our camps, which is a huge jump from last years 22. On snow we are working on fundamentals off and on course, we spend hours and hours focusing on proper athletic stance (ankle and knee flexion, hips up and forward, wide stance, etc), use of all four edges, being on down hill ski, quiet upper body, pole plant, etc. We did drills while free skiing, with stubbies, brushes and in gates. In the afternoons we did activities like playing soccer, hiking and had a lots of fun.
