The season is fast approaching and we will begin with our Kickstart Ski Camp at Sun Peaks from Wednesday November 29thuntil Sunday December 3rd. Signup Deadline is Nov 1.
Due to the uncertain snow conditions in mid-November, we have cancelled our extra early-season camp offering, allowing more time for Sun Peaks to make and receive snow.
The Kickstart camp is an excellent beginning to the season for several reasons including:
• Excellent conditions for skiing and training. (In early Dec, Cypress may not be open, or with unreliable conditions and no training space.)
• Racing Environment: Sun Peaks focuses the mountain for race training at this time of year, attracting many ski racing teams including some from Eastern Canada.
• Team: We are immersed together as team in a racing environment. This brings good focus on and off the hill and a good team experience to start the season. Athletes are exposed to other areas such as ski tuning, nutrition, physical prep, etc.
We will be doing a high volume of technical free-skiing, drills and drill courses with progressions of challenge. We will be catering to individual athlete needs within our training environment, so that all can be well challenged. We will train mostly GS and Glalom turns and courses as conditions allow.
