Ski Brule has one of the premier snowmaking facilities in the country to ensure adequate snow for race training. Many times Ski Brule has had the only Thanksgiving race camp that offered lift served skiing in the Midwest. 1990, 1994, 1998, 1999 & 2009 for example. In 2011, after an all night rain, salt was applied and we had two sessions (AM & PM) of the best training of the camp. High Schoolers, here’s a chance to get your season started with a solid foundation. Make your plans today for Ski Brule.

3 KEYS to SUCCESS
1. FUNDAMENTALS : Latest basic skills and drills in technique and tactics.
2. EXCELLENT VISUALS: Visuals from top athletes and coaches as well as video of World Cup skiers.
3. MAXIMUM REPETITIONS: On snow time designed to afford as many gates or turns as possible.

Groups will break-up according to the age and ability of each athlete. Parents wishing to accompany very small children are welcome.

Emphasis will be on solid ski- technique, bio-mechanics and race techniques. Lectures will cover technique, tactics, conditioning, maintenance, sport psychology, equipment and maintenance.
