Are you a serious ski racer, intent on improving your training technique? If so, there are still openings available for Boyne Mountain's Thanksgiving Race Camp, according to Boyne race director Cary Adgate.
"It's an intense program designed to get you ready for the racing season with seven full days of big mountain training," the former Olympian and professional star told OnTheSnow.
The camp will be held at Boyne's Big Sky Resort in Montana, Nov. 21-27. It includes eight nights lodging, all meals, and all the race training you can handle. The cost is $1,840 for non-Boyne pass holders and from $1,590 if you are a Boyne Mountain or Boyne Highlands pass holder.
"This is a great program for anyone seriously interested in improving their racing skills, and an excellent opportunity to improve physical skiing fitness on a full mountain. It's our first time taking the camp to Big Sky, and I expect it to produce dividends for the attendees. Concentrated training in the mountains will be a real plus," enthused the U.S. Ski Hall of Fame member.
Big Sky is hosting the camp on a private, racers-only high-speed lift, which will assure plenty of on-snow training time. Lodging will be near the base of the training lift.
The program includes two on-snow sessions per day with small groups, and a five-to-one racer to coach ratio that will insure plenty of individual attention. Regular use of video will help enhance your performance.
"Having benefited from a retired world class racer during my teenage years, I believe the most important thing a junior race program can offer is coaching expertise," added the six-time U.S. National Champion.
Parents are welcome to accompany their youngsters and parent lodging information is online. Follow the link below for more information on the camp and registration.
