"The camp has exceeded my expectations and was one of my best ski experiences.
For me everything came together just right--the ski guides, the snow, the group and
the Lodge."
-- Jim L. 2010

This three-day camp, led by Stephen Helfenbein and Dr. Collin Bywaters, takes skiers to expert terrain to employ all-mountain ski tactics and techniques. Alta Performance Ski Camp is for advanced to expert skiers who want to take their skiing experience at Alta and Snowbird to a new level. The camp takes a progressive approach to coaching skiers off the hill as well, instructing them in dry land training for better skiing fitness.

"The coaching was excellent.  But beyond that, part of the camp experience is the opportunity to interact with the coaches, Stephen and Collin, and the camaraderie of the other participants." --M. Brown, 2010

The coaches have developed an innovative coaching system that builds all-mountain confidence and versatility. The camp is designed for skiers with high goals. Goals include:

  • Reading the terrain and conditions for ideal line selection
  • Skiing an entire line without interruption
  • Learning how to use your skis in different snow conditions
  • Using turn shape to attack the hill while maintaining speed control
  • Dry land training
Coaching will be in a 2:8 group ratio, with three days of guided skiing on expert terrain at Alta and Snowbird. We'll emphasize all-mountain ski tactics and techniques. Also included is alignment and functional physical evaluation by a biomechanics expert, video analysis of skiers, and evening indoor presentations that include two dry land training sessions. Skiers will learn what they can do to obtain optimum conditioning for skiing.
