SPAC offers high quality individual athlete focused ski racing summer camps for u10 athletes and up. Camps are a great way to cement learning from the season and to start your next season in an even stronger position. Camps focus on gates training as well as skill building and conditioning. Athlete to coach ratios are low allowing coaching to be focused on each individual athlete. Plus summer camp is a super fun way to ski in the sun with all of your SPAC teammates and friends!

Many of you may ask WHY DO SKI RACING CAMP? What we at SPAC have noticed is that athletes who don’t get on snow between April and December often spend the first month or more of training trying to get back to where they were the previous year. Athletes who attend one or more camps in the of season cement the skills they used the year before and start the season ready to move forward. We highly recommend a camp for any racer trying to push themselves to the next level. And most importantly camp is a super fun way to add to your summer plans.
