The North American Ski Training Center team is offering a three-day training event at Squaw Valley February 26-28.
The ski camp is designed for people who want to refine their technique and learn how to ski the entire mountain better. The program helps get past the intermediate or advance plateau in order to ski the entire mountain in whatever conditions.
The cost of the training camp is $1,250, the package includes three full days of instruction, lift tickets, personalized video-reviews, tech talks and group dinner.
The training camp is for skier levels between 6 and 9. According to NASTC, “A level 6 skier can ski all blue terrain and groomed black trails with a parallel stance,” and “A level 9 skier can ski the majority of the mountain but still needs polishing up technically and more tactical development”.
The PSIA National and Regional Demonstration Team members will help skiers get past flaws in technique and learn new tactics. Training camps are a fun way to learn how to make the most out of the mountain.
The schedule will vary depending on snow conditions, weather and what the groups want to do. Throughout the event will be video and analysis, indoor technical session, group dinners and person skiing evaluations.

8:45 a.m - Meet up with your trainer and warm up
9:00 a.m -12:00 p.m - Skill development via drills and technique work
