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

11 - 15 February
13 - 19 April (This week we have a full residential option available)

Focus of the Camp

Improving young racer's 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 you to shave off the seconds.
