Okemo Mountain School is offering a pre-season fundamentals camp for U12-U19 alpine ski racing athletes in Summit County, Colorado with 10-11 days of on snow training (weather permitting) and academic support. The daily schedule is packed with activities that will jumpstart a young ski racer’s season. This is a great camp to begin the season with and a perfect chance to get a head start on good snow!
Athletes will be taken through a series of fundamentals progressions and drills for Slalom and GS skiing. A pole plant progression that has been very successful in the past will be covered. We will use drills and progressions to work on turn shape and tactics, training in brushes, and full gates drill courses and working into full gate legal course sets.
Athletes will have 2-hour study halls each night to complete school work with the assistance of an OMS teacher. The OMS teacher will provide academic support, as well as facilitate any other subject specific academic support remotely from other teachers at OMS. Tests and quizzes can be administered. Athletes are responsible for using their free time to complete assignments beyond the study hall hours if necessary, although the teacher will always be accessible for support.
Travel details: Air travel will be as a group with final itinerary and departure airport TBD. Any athletes departing from the Ludlow area will be able to travel to the airport in an OMS van. If you would like to make alternate flight arrangements for your athlete to fly to/from an airport that is more convenient for you, please contact us to discuss logistics. OMS is committed to customizing camps for athletes that can not attend for the full planned camp dates. If your athlete would like a shorter camp please let us know.
