*High School racers can train 1 or both days
Saturday, May 14: Slalom training
Sunday, May 15: GS training

We'll train 9am until 2:45pm or so, depending on lift schedule in Mid-May.

Our race camp is open to all Oregon High School ski racers that want to get in some extra training in this spring.   All ability levels are welcome from entry level (first time racers) to Varsity level STATE racers.  We'll focus on the fundamentals of race technique as well as teaching the fastest line through a slalom and GS course.

This is also open to 7th and 8th graders who will eventually become high school ski if you have younger brothers and sisters that want to get their first taste of ski racing, this would be an excellent opportunity.

Testimonials from our high school camps:

Thanks guys! Ziggy said she had a great time and learned a lot! She’s now a fan of your camps and wants to do more 👍

~Irene Calder

I just wanted to say thank you to all the coaches. My daughter Larissa said it was an amazing camp and that she learned so much and feels more confident with racing. Thank you so much and we hope you all have the best Christmas Holiday and Happy New Year! Best,
~ Chan Family

Thanks Robin, Jason and Brian! Kiara really enjoyed attending Winter camp and the instructions from the coaches. Thank you for having a great camp that has a reasonable price.
~ Didi Irwin-Green (Lake Oswego ski team parent)

Robin, Jason & Andrew, On behalf of the Johnson Family ... thanks for making Riley feel so welcome at camp. She had a great time with all of you. She said you gave her some great advice. She enjoyed getting perspective from other coaches! She also liked the video. We don't have that with our club. She talked about finally understanding what her coach has been telling her for two years about dropping her hands on Slalom. The kids were very nice. She regretted that she didn't sign up to stay with you at the lodge ... next time! Thanks again!
~ Joyce Johnson

Robin, Sean,
Thanks so much for providing instruction for our son, Lito, and all the other kids this week.  It was a thrill to see them all up there.  The pace of learning was truly amazing, like watching a plant grow before your eyes.  See you at the races! 
 ~Bill Nicolai (OES ski team parent)

Dear Mr Cressy,
Thanks you very much for the excellent ski camp experience. Hunor had a great time, learned a lot and decided to race on the Lincoln HS team during the next season. 
Sincerely, Marta Somogyi-Mann (Lincoln high school ski team parent)

Robin and Sean,
Taylor got home tonight and talked non-stop through dinner and into the evening about his experience at camp these past 4 days.  He had a great experience and so much fun.  Thank you for your time and energies!  I know this is a tough time of the year, so busy before the holidays and we really appreciate the opportunity for Taylor to train with you.  We loved the photo’s and update you sent each evening, (especially since we couldn’t reach Taylor on his cell due to a weak signal).  It was great to get the daily reports and photos.   He learned so much from you at the camp and had a ton of fun.  I have to tell you that you can double your fees for camp and it would be worth every penny!  Taylor would love to do it again so keep us in mind when you schedule the next one!  Happy holidays! 
~ Laura J. Gentry (Tigard high school ski team parent)

Natalie's dad here.  We can't thank you enough for the instruction you have given her.  We also love the media that is coming also.  Those pictures were great.  Just a great experience. Any time you want to do this again, Natalie is in.  I would also like to know if you ever do private lessons.  Natalie, Annette, and I are very impressed with your system.  Thank you so much. 
~ Tom Quirk (Sunset high school ski team parent)

Hi Robin. Just wanted to thank you for a successful race camp.  Natalie was very excited about all she learned on both days.  Again, we are very thankful for all of yours and Sean's instruction.  Natalie's been jotting down notes to keep it all in her head.  Enjoy the rest of Spring Break. 
~ Annette Quirk (Sunset high school ski team parent)

Steven reports he learned lots of great tips and the camp was terrific.  Thanks for doing this.  I think he'll be back next year for sure.
