mt hood ski camp start mid-march the rest of them from mid-May to June start ups. there are other clinics and programs this spring at Timberline but not any race camps. the skiing should be perfect this spring on the Palmer snowfield. I would go this year but have a large construction project starting soon. If you get a chance see Hood River on the Columbia River. Wind surfing,ect.

Ski camps ROCK!  I got do a week at a freestyle camp with a water ramp, tramps, diving boards, ski boats, etc when I was 17.  Hands down one of the coolest things I ever did in my entire life.

Give Paul at call at Can-Am Camps.  My son races on his winter team and he runs camps all Summer up on Palmer.

Plenty of camps / teams (too many perhaps) running training camps over Thanksgiving break at Copper. Mostly the same ones as Hood (Tichy, Peak Performance, NASC, etc.). I much prefer a week or two bashing gates on Palmer - and coming off the glacier wearing flip flops.

I can't speak to freestyle training, but . . . .

 

The best all around race camps at Mt. Hood in terms of the quality of instruction, prefessionalism, and organization are Peak Perfomance, Olin-Lacasse, and I would throw U.S. Elite in there as well.   They also do a good job of making sure the kids have fun, too.

 

I think the Mt. Hood Ski Camp is too big, has too many kids, and has had some "issues" over the years wth safety and management.  Plus, I don't think Mt. Hood has the level of instruction that the others do.

Many of the big ski academies offer early season (November/December) camps and if there is room, will take in "outsiders". Get in touch with some of those programs. The Ski Racing web site offers a list of academies and camps.

SwissAm and Loveland Race Club have gate training that starts in November. LRC provides lane space for many national teams prior to the US WC races so you usually can see the worlds best on the same slopes you are training on.

Not sure if you're interested in the east coast but there is Cardenali Race Camp in VT in early December.

I went last year and it was great.  All levels.  Lots of racer's from the Masters and an incredible staff.
