Information - sorry camp cancelled due to conditions

If the conditions are right, there is no better place to train then at home in the Cairngorms!  Due to the unpredictable Scottish weather conditions, there will be off snow training activities and multi sports if the mountain is closed.  This camp is targeted at skiers and racers and the minimum standard is that the kids can already ski parallel turns and travel everywhere on the mountain independently.

cairngorm camp dates

8 - 12 April  - due to the unpredictable snow conditions we will confirm (or cancel) this camp one week before the start date.

Focus of the Camp

Improving racers’ core skills through activities that involve good balance, coordination and timing.   The aims and values of this 5 day camp are: fun, skill improvement, and getting faster through the gates!  Dual SL race, timing equipment, team challenges, and individually coaching, all help you to shave off the seconds through the course.

Daily Programme

Meet at 8:45 first day, meet and greet, safety briefing, camp goals and the plan for the week.  The plan for the rest of the week:

  • 9 am meet at the mountain railway ready to go with your lift pass

  • 9 - 11:30 morning training session

A parent or designated guardian with transport must be present on the hill in case of an emergency.
