Supreme Experiences are now offering 5-day Performance Ski Camps for recreational skiers in Europe and Canada. What does that mean? Well, it means you get to train like a professional ski racer but in a friendly and sociable environment! Jack Evans, the founder, and Head Coach of Supreme Performance Camps had spent over a decade training ski racers all the way up to the World Cup level. Knowing the benefits and excitement athletes get when skiing Giant Slalom courses, he thought it was time recreational skiers get in on the action!
Here are three key components of skiing that this camp emphasises to help guide you in becoming a better all-around skier.
Here are a few reasons people have noticed remarkable changes and improvements in confidence during these camps. Skiing on a private course frees you from concern of other skiers, allowing you to focus solely on your run and technique. The race gates will give you a consistent training environment, enabling coaches to identify old habits and give you the repetition needed to permanently improve them. Using gates also allows you to grow more comfortable to push your speed, let you compare runs, and feel drastic technical changes in your skiing throughout the day. Ultimately, the camps will improve your ability to stay balanced on your skis when on a higher edge angle which will ultimately leave you feeling less wobbly and more in control on the mountain.
In ski lessons they are quick to work on technique with out including tactics. Your choice of line is a type of tactic that is incredibly important for managing terrain, speed, crowds, varying snow conditions and more. With a set line from the gates, it challenges your turn shape and ability to make real time tactical decisions. Picking a line and having the ability and confidence to ski it is something the gates teach you in abundance!
We all want to see two clean lines in our ski tracks when we look back up the slope and that doesn’t change when you get in a racecourse. Having the simple focus of trying to get from point A, the start gate, to point B, the finish line, as quickly as you can with a course in between will automatically incentivise you to carve your turns. There are many technical elements that come with the ability to properly carve, and this camp will break them down for you personally and help you achieve each of them!
These performance camps come at very reasonable prices with discounts on accommodations, food, and rentals. The 5 days on snow begin with team breakfast, then it’s time to hit the ski slopes. Starting with a couple of warm up runs with your coach, you will then go through a ski course inspection to ready you for the Giant Slalom gates. Throughout the training day your coach will provide on hill video review, technical feedback along with your technical goals and guide you on how to meet them. After lunch and an afternoon training session you’ll head back to the hotel for spa time, social activities, video analysis, team dinner and drinks.
The methodology of these camps is designed for people to ski out of their comfort zone in a safe environment to elicit improvements in their skiing in a short period of time. The training days run like a professional ski team other than some more friendly ski courses, luxury accommodations and a little more social time! This unique approach has resulted in incredible results in ski technique and tactics, confidence, carving and 100% client return rate from last season to this.
