This is American Downhiller – where the best current and former downhill ski racers and coaches band together to create a speed-skiing platform for the future generation of ski racers. Our mission is to empower young ski racers to approach their careers with champion-grade passion, genuine curiosity, and formidable tenacity. This is the base camp for becoming the fastest in the world. We offer different camps of the highest coaching quality and caliber.
The Squaw Valley World Cup School of Speed with American Downhiller will give you unparalleled exposure to World Cup athletes and coaches. As one elite athlete put it “be prepared to listen and observe” as World Cup athletes demonstrate and present. You will ski through several progressions while interacting with athletes and alum who make future dreams tangible at Squaw Valley.
Besides being prepared for ‘Sunny California’ spring weather come with the mindset that these elements will prepare you for all disciplines with unparalleled exposure to the Squaw Valley mountain terrain and legacy. Don’t forget your winter layers but plan to take in sunny, beautiful Lake Tahoe in your downtime.
