Open Masters/Citizen Technique Camps


Citizen Skier Camps Join CXC coaches and fellow Master skiers in the northwoods of Wisconsin for our focused technique training camps. All levels are welcome, from beginners to advanced.

The camps focus on drills and workouts that tend to be unique and different from most skiers' normal routines. A fair amount of the work is drills and skills that break down technique to individual movements and that progression helps skiers understand what they must work on the most to improve.

During the days at the camp participants work on agility, balance, dry-land training, ski imitation, and skiing on snow or rollerskiing. The camp is also a great opportunity to learn about training, technique, racing, recovery and more.

NEW! Semi-informal time trials at on-snow technique and training sessions.

DATES:

  • August 26-28 / Technique Camp (Cable, WI)
  • September 21-25 / Altitude Training Camp (Park City, UT)
