About the Camps

Registration for 2019/20 will open in the spring. These dates are current – stay tuned.

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.

Biathlon Camp

This exciting nordic sport combines skate skiing with precision target shooting. Start the day at the range with our wildly fun Biathlon coach Karen Messenger in a fun and safe environment! Spend your afternoons skiing with the regular Supercamp program improving your ski technique.

Requirements for participation in Biathlon Camp include:

  • Intermediate 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.

Race Prep (Pro) Camp

Back by popular demand, this camp targets the experienced athlete looking to gain a nordic edge. If you are an athlete looking to enhance your understanding of cross country ski training and racing, this camp is for you!

Coached by some of Canada’s best, the goal is to improve your skiing efficiency, power, and prepare you to participate in the Master’s or Loppet circuit.

Not just for skiers – if you are a competitive cyclist, mountain biker, runner, paddler, or multisport athlete, nordic skiing is an incredible full-body workout for the tough winter training months. Working on that efficiency will help you stay aerobic during those long mileage days.

Please contact the Supercamp Coordinator if you’re not sure this camp is for you.
