What is the difference between a half day and a full day camp?
We introduced the half-day option as many of our guests were requesting time to go skiing on their own, rest, catch up on work, go alpine skiing, enjoy their hot tub, etc. If you choose the half day option, you ski with your group in the morning and you can participate in all of the off-snow extras; you just don’t participate in the afternoon on-snow session.
Typically, our coaches focus more heavily on technical development in the morning and ski a little more distance in the afternoon. We call these longer skis ‘guided mileage’. This practice time is very important for skill development as it allows coaches to reinforce what was covered in the morning session.
The price difference can be found on the camps page of the website.
What time does the 3-day camp start on Friday?
Our weekend camps start on Friday morning with a camp briefing. We meet at 13:00 in the NATC auditorium, ready to break into groups and ski right away. If you would like to come to early registration, please meet for a welcome at the Red Antler (PLEASE CONFIRM THIS LOCATION IN YOUR WELCOME EMAIL) at 19:30 on Thursday.
Do you offer a discount if I cannot attend a day?
We understand that due to work or travel restrictions, sometimes you cannot attend a day of the camp. Because of all the built in Supercamp costs, you will receive a maximum of $50 a day for only one day that you are not able to attend. This offer is valid for requests made before the first day of your camp.
What technique will I be skiing on Day 1 if am in a combined Classic and Free (skating) group?
For 5 day camps, you can register for a ‘combo’ camp involving both skate and classic technique. The advantage of a combo camp is that you can learn new tips and tricks for both techniques, alternating between classic and skate. Often, learning new classic tricks will help your skate skiing, and vice versa.
On Monday morning, combo camps will start on skate and alternate each day or as suggested by your coach.
We offer only classic or only skate for 3 day camps.
What is your refund policy?
With notice of over 3 weeks, we can provide you a full refund less a $50 non-refundable administrative fee for each registration.
If you request a cancellation within 3 weeks of your first day of Supercamp, you will receive a credit for a later camp in the current season (subject to availability). All credits will be issued for a camp of equal or lesser value.
If Supercamp has to cancel a camp for any reason, participants will receive a full refund.
What waxing equipment should I bring?
Supercamp does not provide wax, but we do offer access to a wax room equipped with forms and outlets. If you are planning to wax your skis at Supercamp, you will need to bring all of your waxing equipment (waxes, scrapers, brushes, etc). If you have a waxing iron, bring it with you. There are a limited number of irons on site.
The wax room is located in the lower level of the NATC. There is also a wax room in the Snowbird Lodge and one at Sovereign Lake Nordic Club.

Should I bring my own skis and boots?
Where is the Sunday night check-in before my 5-day camp starts?
The Red Antler – 19:30. Located in Silver Star Village by the ticket kiosk.
Bryana will be there with your welcome package! Food and drinks are available for purchase at the restaurant – it’s one of Silver Star’s best.
Will we be skiing in both classic and skating techniques?
You can choose between a skate-only option, a classic-only option, or a combination of both during out 4.5 day camps. Combo groups will skate and classic on alternating days.
Our 3-day program offers skate-only or classic-only camps to allow you to focus on developing one technique. Often, our skiers have similar areas for improvement in both techniques.
