NEW! LOVELAND EARLY SEASON RACE CAMP

Loveland, CO - November 12-16th

The new Colorado Early Season Masters Camp is now open for registration. It's a 5-day camp, November 12-16. The plan is for 50% free-skiing and all those early season drills you should do, and 50% in gates. Please note, this camp is limited to only 20 people

Many of you know my husband, Jack, who coaches with me at Red Lodge Mountain and at Big Sky. He'll be at Loveland, along with my long-time ski racing pal, Carolyn Beckedorff. Carolyn was among the top masters racers in the world and is now a level 300 US Ski and Snowboard Coach.

There will be some hill space for free-skiing and drills on gate-training days, too. Here's the basic plan:

Day 1: Directed free-skiing (drills) with coaches.

Day 2-3: Slalom training

Day 4-5: GS training. Departure after skiing.

To register for this camp, you need to email or call me. I will send you an invoice for the camp. Once that's paid, you're in!

BIG SKY EARLY SEASON MASTERS CAMP

Big Sky Resort, MT - Nov 18-23, 2022

This camp will likely run 6 days this year, instead of 5 days - 3 days on slalom skis + 3 days on GS skis, included free-skiing drills before we jump into gates. The coaching staff from the last two years returns, including me, Jack Ballard and Brenna Kelleher. Max 24 athletes.

DUST-THE-RUST-OFF CAMP

Red Lodge Mountain, MT - Dec 4-7, 2022 + Masters GS/SL Dec 8-9, 2022

The recent flooding in Red Lodge will not affect the camp. Registration will open on September 1 at 7:00 AM (Mountain). Set your alarm! This camp filled in 6 minutes last year. Max 40 athletes. 2 days slalom training + 2 days of GS training, including free-skiing drills. I'm super excited that we will hold two races at the end of the camp this year - a masters sanctioned GS and SL - on Dec 8-9. All of last year's coaches will return, including me, Jack Ballard, Mark Selby, Cole Greer and Jeremy Wolf.
