Do you dream of skiing untracked lines but worry that your skills aren’t up to it? If you ski with confidence on all blue terrain, this camp will build skills and confidence to take your skiing out of the ski area and into the backcountry for an experience of a lifetime.
This two-day camp is aimed at the mature intermediate skier who is very proficient on all the groomed runs a ski resort may have to offer but avoids mogul runs. The goal of the camp is to make friends with moguls and develop confidence in blue-level mogul fiends. We will start out slowly with proven exercises and progressions to get you to your goals. You’ll be skiing in a small group setting with like-minded skiers who share your same goals. Instructors leading the groups are mature skiers who have taught for many years at the Telluride Ski Resort who will base all teaching on the Professional Ski Instructors of America core principles, as applied in moguls.
