Blackcomb Glacier Summer Camp

July 13, 2016 - July 17, 2016

Open to:

U10, U12, U14, U16 and U18 skiers.

Accommodations and transportation provided by parents.

Off Season Training Purpose & Objectives: 

The Aim2Win document, published by Alpine Canada provides the guidelines for optimal skill development of fast, athletic skiers. We definitely need to incorporate more training days in order to provide more opportunities for acquiring the fundamentals of skiing stance and balance required to fully take advantage of winter skiing and competition.

Training at Blackomb glacier is a unique opportunity. Having a place to ski in the summer in your backyard is not at all common. The glacier has a gentle terrain, well suited to learning and practicing skills. The fact that there will be 5 consecutive days on snow provides for a conducive environment to learn. After skiing skiers rest and refuel. Afternoons are filled with fun games and physical activities.


It is important to have well tuned skis, as the snow is very hard in the mornings. The trip to the glacier takes about 45 minutes so bring a backpack where you can carry gym shoes, water and a lunch. Brin SL/GS skis and gear. A poncho, sunscreen and good goggles are very important.

Info on cost and program TBA.
