Summer 2015 Ski Dryland Programming

There's an adage in skiing: "Skiers are made in the summer." In addition to our sculling and running camps (both great training options), we offer annual members dryland training during the warm months. We have programs for most everyone. Programs are generally organized by age (e.g. U14/16 = for 12-15 year olds), but final selection/placement will depend on participant's needs and Coaches' discretion. Ready to Register?
