    Who should attend the camp?

    This new program is designed for skiers looking to:

    • Learn how to successfully and effectively navigate a NASTAR style course
    • Improve their skiing/times in Nastar style courses
    • Learn more about ski racing techniques and tactics

    Participants should be comfortable with skiing at least double blue groomed terrain with some speed and navigating a race course.


    What to expect

    Each day we will ski from 10am-3:30pm. Our time spent on snow will be a mix of:

    • Skiing out of the course in order to work on technique
    • Time spent in our own private course working on race specific technique and tactics
    • Runs in the Telluride NASTAR course- Going For The Gold!

    We will cater the program to the needs of the individual and the group in order to create opportunities for the most learning!
