Our camps provide ski warm-up followed by stance, skills work and freeskiing mixed with gate drills and courses. This proven format allows the racers to simultaneously work on fundamental skill development, modern racing tactics and strategies on each run. Each evening ski groups meet with their coaches for a video movement analysis. This process provides NASC athletes with a model and a solid understanding of what to practice during the next morning’s warm-up time.
Each day of training, NASC campers participate in several aspects of ski training. Our gate progressions (of graduating difficulty) and athlete-centred methodology allow the NASC athletes to develop skills and confidence while having fun and running lots of gates.NASC understands that being a ski racer and having the skills and knowledge to coach are two different paths. We hire only the best and our philosophy is safety, fun and learning…in that order.
