Mission: To create the highest level of personal training in a productive environment for athletes via staff, prime training arenas, less crowding, hands on dryland, awesome lodging, and constant mentoring and coaching.

CAMP HIGHLIGHTS

We coach the most up to date slalom and GS techniques. The athlete will work on fundamentals, train mountain slalom and GS, with all skill levels. Groups are formed before the camp, using age and talent as the formula for grouping.

  • We have a 5:1 coach / athlete ratio. We are the only camp that provides this.
  • Full length training lanes, perfect for mountain GS and slalom. Most other camps only use ½ length.
  • 12 - 14 athletes per training group with four coaches. One training group per training arena to ensure quality coaching and terrain, each training arena is serviced by our own high speed quad.
  • Each group will have two training blocks every day, starting on Sunday. Each training block is 2 ½ hours. We always train with a vision, focusing on deliberate practice.
  • Dryland and recovery is a fun environment with different activities each day, including soccer, broomball, wally ball, swimming, swiss balls, yoga, etc. It is optional depending on energy level of the athlete.
  • Coaches meet with the athletes every evening to go over video from the day and to view World Cup video and plan the next day.
  • Private pickups and drop offs from Denver Int. Airport to Copper and back on designated arrival and departure days.
  • Our accommodations are very roomy; all are two and three-bedroom condos.

ACCOMMODATIONS

We stay slope-side at Copper Mountain condominiums, Mountain Plaza & Village Square in the Center Village; both have a five-star rating. Two and three bedrooms with full kitchen, living room, three bathrooms, and a fireplace are the norm. There are laundry facilities, a hot tub, and a sauna in the building. Four to six athletes plus a coach will stay in each condo. Please indicate any roommate request on the application and we will do our best to accommodate you. 

MEALS

A hot breakfast buffet is provided every morning by Copper. We employ our own cooking staff who serves home cooked meals for lunch and dinner. On Thanksgiving, we cook a complete turkey dinner with all the trimmings.

Flight Information

Book your flights as early as possible! 

Flight arrangements are your responsibility. A great website for tickets is www.kayak.com. Airport pickup times are 12:00 pm, 4:00 pm, and last departure for Copper is at 8:00 pm, at Denver International Airport. Please schedule your arrivals at the Denver Airport to allow sufficient time to make one of the three departure times.  If your athlete cannot make one of the three scheduled departure times you will need to arrange transportation for them to Copper Mountain Ten Mile Circle.  We suggest that you contact Colorado Mountain Express or Summit Express to make these arrangements.  Athletes arriving/departing other than on the normal camp start/end (Nov 17/Nov 25) will need to make their own transportation arrangements. Our coaching staff will pick you up at the airport. Unaccompanied minors will be picked up at the gate by Scott Winquist.  Try to pair your athlete up with one of our coaches who may be flying on the same flight before paying for an unaccompanied minor.
