Frequently Asked Questions

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 is your refund policy?

With notice of over 2 weeks, we can provide you a full refund less a $50 non-refundable administrative fee for each registration.

If you request a cancellation within 2 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 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, go alpine skiing, rest, catch up on work, enjoy their hot tub, etc. If you choose the half day option you can still participate in all of the off snow extras before and after your time on snow; you just don’t participate in the afternoon ‘on snow’ session.

Typically, our coaches do the majority of the teaching and instruction in the morning and ski with you in the afternoon. This is what we call ‘guided mileage’. This practice time is very important for your skill development as it allows your coach to reinforce what you learned in the morning session.

The price difference  between a half day and full day can be found on the camps page of the website.

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 classic and alternate each day or as suggested by your coach.

We offer only classic or only skate for 3 day camps.

 

What time does the 3 day camp start on Friday afternoon?

Our weekend camps start on Friday morning with a camp briefing. We meet at 8:15am, ready to break into groups and ski right away.

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.
