Alta Lodge Ski Camps

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 

Anyone have experience with the Alta Lodge ski camps?  They have an intermediate/advanced camp in January called Powder Tracks.  Instructors seem to come from Alta ski school.

 

I'm looking for an intermediate camp to help me get off the intermediate "plateau".  Seems to be an underserved segment as most camps I've found are for advanced skies or skiers who want "steep and deep".

Taos ski week. 

post #3 of 6

They are different animals.  Taos is a 2 hour lesson each day.  Alta's Powder Tracks is 4 full days of instruction.

 

I have no experience taking any clinics.  However, I know my ski club went to Taos a few years back and the lessons each day were included in their week.  From what I saw no one came back a significantly improved skier.

 

Not saying one is better than the other.  I am also curious as I have been thinking about finding a multi day clinic my girlfriend and I could attend together...my ulterior motive is to get her to a point were she handles techy terrain faster and smoother so I don't have to wait for her.:rolleyes

 

I am a selfish bastard!

I looked at Taos, but Alta works better for my schedule.  My kids are ski racers and I only have to miss one weekend of racing at Alta.

Haven't done a ski camp at Alta Lodge but love staying there.  My impression from having been there when a camp was happening is that everyone was very happy with their experience.  Have had very good experiences with a few of the most experienced ski instructors at Alta Ski School.  My guess is that you will learn a fair amount that you could build on afterwards.

I haven't done that camp, but if the instructors come from Alta Ski School, you can't go wrong. I did the jumpstart clinic a couple years ago and it really advanced my skiing.
