Erich Sailer Ski Racing Camps, Inc.

Phone: 952-431-4477


Overview: Long established ski racing camp, attracting racers from all over the US and Canada. Erich co-founded the first US summer ski racing camp on Mt. Hood in the 1950s. “Safety first” is his motto and with a lifetime of experience skiing on summer snow, his safety record is excellent. Parents can lodge with their children if they wish and are also welcome on the mountain.

The high quality of the coaching staff and their livelong experience as racers and coaches. A caring attitude towards each and every young racer. Safety is always on their minds. Attracting also top junior talent. Full-length courses. Daily video sessions/analysis. Very comfortable lodging facility. Ski testing available on site. We mostly have 2 coaches on one course and will guarantee good conditions.

Why You Should Attend This Summer Camp: 

Great opportunity for athletes to work with top-notch coaches and pacesetters in a results-oriented environment. Lots of visual demonstrations, coaches are rotated for the benefit of the athletes. Coaches are motivated to work with athletes of all abilities. Being productive on the mountain creates a lot of excitement and a feeling of accomplishment. Slalom and GS training offered.

Why This Camp Stands Out Above The Rest: 

Long established ski racing camp run by Erich Sailer, US Ski Hall of Famer. We would like the campers to arrive in good physical condition so they can take advantage of the opportunity to train hard. Young motivated coaches working with experienced Head Coaches. Lots of video analysis, dryland training, superb lodging facility “The Resort at the Mountain”, offering outdoor pool, tennis courts, golf. “Safety first” is Erich’s motto; most experienced coach with summer ski training. Large number of repeat campers. Erich invites parents if they want to watch.

Aside from on-snow training, you can expect: 

The campers should arrive in a good physical condition so they can take full advantage of the intense and fulfilling training on the mountain and be ready for afternoon dryland training, some hiking, video sessions, after dinner meeting. The facility offers a gorgeous pool, tennis court with free racquet use, an 18 hole putting course with putter provided, some games like soccer if weather permits. Great lodging for parents accompanying the younger kids.
