About the Camps

Blessed with early snow, exceptional trails and a charming on-mountain village, skiers from around the world and throughout North America travel to the camps to get their ski season started off on the right foot. Whether you’re a competitive masters racer, a first-time skier, or somewhere in between, come & enjoy our 105km of rolling terrain, professional coaching, exceptional grooming and the best natural early season snow in Canada.

Supercamp

3-Day or 4.5-Day Options

XC Supercamp, our base program, offers coaching for diverse abilities and fitness levels. Whether you want to ski more efficiently, glide farther and faster, or simply gain confidence on your skis, our professional coaches will help you reach the next level. Our 105km of rolling terrain, exceptional grooming, and comprehensive program provide an inspiring nordic experience.  Start your ski season with a solid foundation with a Supercamp.

Choose from a 3 day (weekend) or 4.5 day (weekday) Supercamp. Both are available in half day or full day programs to allow for your perfect fit.

You can also combine two camps into our 7-day option running Monday through Sunday.

Biathlon Camp

This exciting nordic sport combines skate skiing with precision target shooting. Start the day at the range with Canadian Biathlon superstar Karen Messenger in a fun and safe environment learning marksmanship skills and how to combine them with skate skiing in order to do biathlon. Spend the afternoon skiing with the regular Supercamp program improving your skate ski technique.

Requirements for participation in Biathlon Camp include:

  • Intermediate or above skate skiing ability. Beginners or classic-only skiers are very welcome to participate in the afternoon Biathlon Demo session (see registration)
  • Flexibility to get down onto the shooting mat and up again, with skis on
  • Good vision in order to focus through the rifle sights onto the targets 50m away. If you need vision correction, contact lenses work best as glasses tend to fog. Bifocals, trifocals, tinted/colour changing lenses, and prescription sunglasses do not work well for biathlon shooting.
