Olin/Lacasse Ski Racing School



Overview: Advanced instruction in ski racing from world-class coaches Tony Olin and Josee Lacasse and their acclaimed international staff. Students of all ages are exposed to world-class GS and slalom techniques, presented with tactical evaluation, all in a safe, well-supervised environment. We conduct proven, innovative drills and exercises for the long-term technical development of each racer. We present daily on and off-hill video analysis; highly effective, low student-to-coach ratios; full-length courses and race simulations; cross-training activities enhancing coordination/sport specific skills; equipment and basic biomechanical evaluation; conditioning and tuning.

Tony Olin and Josee Lacasse have been coaching athletes of all abilities for decades – including several current and recently retired World Cup athletes. Before forming Olin/Lacasse SkiRacing School, they worked for famed Erich Sailer – and helped form some of the World’s best ski racers. Tony and Josee also believe that every skier is important and that no matter where they are on the development scale, their experience at summer camp should be enriching and productive.

If you’re looking to develop your skills as a ski racer, choose a camp that focuses on the individual. Choose a camp that has skill development as the chief objective. Some camps offer a lot of other distractions – having little to do with becoming a better ski racer. Your goal should be to return to your program a different – improved skier. We want your coaches to say, “Wow, what happened to you?!”
