Hello Comp Team,
This year, BSF Alpine is returning to Panorama, BC, Canada for our annual Thanksgiving Camp.
We are leaving early on Monday Nov 25
and will be returning late Sunday, Dec 1
st. At this camp we will train Slalom and GS. We are planning on skiing 6 days.
The coaches will be Larue Seitz-Dettori, Kenny Wilson, and Roger Bay. We are planning on taking 2 vans and the trailer. Breakfast and lunch will be provided, and we will eat dinners at the resort like we did last year. The food there is actually pretty good. It is great fuel for athletes!
Some really great reasons for going to Panorama T-Camp this year:
Panorama ski resort is very supportive of ski race training.
The area is
ONLY open to racers (no public).
It has been a great camp for BSF Alpine in the past.
Other Canadian teams and US teams will be there.
Lodging is right at the mountain.
Ski tuning facilities in the basement.
Up to 2 on-snow training sessions per day (This is not possible in Colorado)
About a 5:1 athlete to coach ratio.
