I’ve Registered – Now What?

Now That I’ve Registered

Welcome to the Supercamp family!

Located at the beautiful Silver Star Mountain Resort, your camp is the complete nordic experience. With daily on-snow training sessions, you will cover technique, distance, and strength on skis. Spend your evenings relaxing at wine & yoga, learning from our guest speakers, and hanging out at the camp social.

Each day begins in the Silver Star Village, where you will find your coaches with a friendly smile. Ski sessions will be from 8:30AM to lunch, then resume for an afternoon ski from 1:30PM to 3:30PM (for most programs).

Lunches provide a fairly long break – enough time to eat, socialize, change clothes, go shopping…whatever you need to do to be ready for your afternoon!

What Should I Bring?

Skis, boots, poles

Classic:

    • Classic boots should fit like running shoes. The cuff comes to your ankle and provides little support.
    • Skis should be about the height of your wrist when extended overhead (reach up!)
    • Poles should hit at the shoulder area, anywhere between your armpit to top of shoulder, depending on your style

Skate

    • Skate boots have a taller, stiffer cuff to provide ankle support while skiing
    • Skate skis are roughly your height
    • Poles should be between your upper lip and your nose

Clothing

  • ski clothing (non-cotton layers)
  • windbreaker or ski jacket
  • ski pants (warm up pants to go add insulation and windproof)
  • a warm outer layer (eg. a down jacket or insulated parka)
  • hat, mitts, gloves, buff
  • sun glasses
  • winter boots
  • running shoes
  • gym clothes
  • bathing suit if you have a hot tub
  • casual clothing

Extras
