August Mt Hood SL camp

Our FIS and U16 teams concluded another camp at Timberline resort in Oregon. We did six (August 15-20) days on snow with 16 athletes. We had some athletes from Sun Valley joining us at this SL specific week. We had great weather and conditions were still very good. 
Summer skiing is a very important part of Alpine racing and seeing improved numbers from year to year it is a huge positive change that will get us all to the next level. 

JHSC November Colorado camp:

We are organizing JHSC Fall camp in Colorado for U14, U16 and FIS athletes. As of now we are still deciding if we will do "Day Camp" or "Regular Camp".
Cost for "Day Camp": ​$1450 for U16&FIS athletes and $1250 for U14 athletes. 
Cost for "Regular Camp" (traveling as a team): $1750 for U16&FIS athletes and $1500 for U14 athletes. 
Due to possible "Day Camp", this year we will train all days at Cooper and potentially free ski couple days at Loveland. We will work on fundamentals, free skiing, gate training, etc. 
We are leaving Jackson around 10am on November 6th and will start skiing on the 7th. Our last day on snow will be on Nov 15th and we will drive back home on that day.
