If you are considering attending U.S. Elite camps next year, or following years, it is a great experience. Today, was our last day of GS, and one of the most productive. We worked on our transitions in between turns throughout the week. This is a productive camp because one session it is equivalent to one month of regular training on one’s home mountain during the winter. When we first came to this camp, we were not the skiers we are today.
The day starts at 5:00 in the morning when you wake up and go to breakfast. After that, campers go straight to the van and up to the mountain. At the mountain, you train for 5 hours with your group! Training’s pretty amazing with lots of action. Waking up at 5am pays off though, because you learn a lot, and have a great time. Today was Saturday, July 2nd, a windy day to start off with, but the wind eventually died down and it was a perfect 60-degree day. The course was exquisite with some ruts but still pretty good. I saw some sweet skiing by kids at the camp of all ages! Some falls here and there, but that only contributes to the progress that the campers are achieving. The cabins are warm, cozy, and comfortable which is great after a long day on the mountain. The coaches are helpful and encouraging to all campers all day long. The afternoon games and activities are a great way to connect with fellow campers and build teamwork opportunities to make new buddies. Throughout the entire camp, everything is amazing such as the cabins, food, training, afternoon activities. Having fun and ripping it up!
