Your coaches from Alta’s Alf Engen Ski School specialize in creating a unique experience that explores specific attributes of great skiing and expert technique. They will help you feel what it’s like to get more performance out of your skis. The camp takes a progressive approach off the hill as well, with presentations on ski specific fitness (in addition to coaching, Collin Bywaters, a Doctor of Physical Therapy, researches, develops and implements recommendations for ski specific conditioning), video study and everything else that goes into skiing expertly.
The coaches have developed a 3-day progression that builds all-mountain confidence and versatility. The camp is designed for skiers with high goals which include:
• Reading the terrain and conditions for ideal line selection
• Skiing an entire line without interruption
• Learning how to use your skis in different snow conditions
• Using turn shape to attack the hill while maintaining speed control
• Recognizing your skiing strengths and specific improvements
Coaching will be in a 1:5 group ratio, with guided skiing on expert terrain at Alta. A specific skiing focus will be previewed each day, you’ll practice some drills that will train your focus, then practice, practice, practice (aka ski a lot!).
