Looks like the Ski Season here in the Tahoe Region is about over, maybe we get a freak dump, and we can get a day in, but it is time to start thinking about next season.
So now that next season is on the mind.... I have been approached by another parent of a young 8-9 year old skier about enrolling our kids into a 10 day program up in Mt. Hood, this June.
Reading up on it, it seems like a great adventure for my 8 yr old daughter. She will have a friend that she races and trains with durning the season with her, and this will be their 1st sleep away camp of any kind. But it also looks like she/they will get some insight into what it takes to become a good racer, no off-season if you want to max your potential.
My question is has anyone trained at one of these summer ski camps ? Anyone done the Mt. Hood one? Anyone send their young groms up to one of these, and what difference in your skiing, or skier did you notice?
Can you give me some insight, pointers, expectations, etc...
