We will work on drills, technic, balance, coordination, gates, physical preparedness, etc. Summer camps are very important aspect of ski racing where we are struggling the most. Since winters are shorter and shorter it is crucial that athletes stay in touch with snow over the summer and fall. 

We are planing to have a Fall Colorado camp from November 8th to 17th. 

Spring Camp at Snowbird

We had a group of 10 athletes participating at Spring Snowbird camp in May. Focus was on free-skiing and SL training. 

Summer Dryland

Dryland is in full swing and we have 10 to 15 athletes participating every day. Trainings are Monday to Friday from 4:15pm to 6:15pm. After school year ends we will move trainings to morning hours. This is great opportunity for athletes to prepare them self for ski season.
Please communicate with Seppi Stiegler regarding dryland:
U14's will start with dryland in September and U10's and 12's will start in October.
