National Alpine Ski Camp (NASC)
27500 E Timberline Road Timberline Lodge, OR 97028
Overview:This is a ski camp with a twist. Train GS and SL in the mornings, and do really fun summer sports in the afternoons. Super G training is offered during the first and second sessions. Campers choose from three different after-ski activities each day. Our hand-selected coaches are highly trained in ski racing and coaching and have the passion for coaching young athletes in a safe, fun learning environment. Safety, fun and learning is the NASC philosophy. A six-to-one athlete to coach ratio is used to ensure effective learning for each athlete. Coaches tailor a program for each individual athlete based on their motivation, level of understanding and movement patterns. NASC uses terrain-based learning (TBL) in which a custom wave track is built every season to challenge the athletes’ balance. NASC is the only camp at Hood to do this.
Locations: Mt. Hood, Ore./Timberline Ski Resort (summer); Copper Mountain, Colo. (fall). The NASC summer campus is “The Resort at the Mountain” in Welches, Oregon (www.theresort.com). Nestled in the western highlands just 15 minutes from Mt. Hood, The Resort at the Mountain is a premier Oregon ski and golf resort. Its modern luxury condominium custom houses are located on the golf course or on the banks of the Salmon River in very beautiful locations (see pictures at www.skicamp.com). Privately catered with locally grown fresh produce, the camp serves healthy, balanced home-cooked meals. The fall camp is at the Copper Mountain Inn, slopeside at Copper Mountain in Colorado.
