Holiday Race Camp December 17 – 20, 2017
REGISTER HERE between July 1st and October 1st
The three day GMVS Holiday Race Camp is open to U.S. Ski and Snowboard and Alpine Canada registered U12 and U14 racers. This high-volume training opportunity will be focused on technical free skiing, as well as Slalom and Giant Slalom drills and exercises.
Campers will lodge at the White Horse Inn at the base of Mount Ellen, GMVS’s primary training site. Breakfast will be served at the Inn, lunch at the Mount Ellen cafeteria, and dinner at GMVS.
The daily schedule is packed with activities that will jumpstart the young ski racer’s season. Each day will include a technical free ski block, a break for lunch, and a gate-training block on the famed Kelly Brush Race Area. After skiing, campers will go to the GMVS campus for physical conditioning and Functional Movement Screening (the FMS Test), video analysis, tuning, and tuning clinics in the Racing Performance Center (GMVS’ world-class athletic facility). The Holiday Race Camp coaching staff is primarily made up of fulltime GMVS Academy coaches—many of whom are former national team coaches or athletes. Participants receive a written camp evaluation focused on technical and tactical strengths and areas for improvement, and results of the FMS Testing.
It is important to apply early as our Holiday Race camp will be capped at forty athletes. For inquiries or questions, please contact Sally Utter, HRC Camp Director at email@example.com.
