Winter Ski Camps out West for Teens?

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 

Hi,

 

So, I was wondering if anybody here knows of any winter ski camps out west that I can send one of my 16 year old kids to... So far all I know of is a Mt. Hood ski camp which looks good (http://www.mthood.com/winter_spring_camps.htm), but I'm looking for some other options too.  Any suggestions would be great.

 

Thanks

I also know of the Windells winter camp, so if anybody knows more about that it would be great.

Most of the large ski academies run camps for "outsiders" to join in for a week or two. Check them out. You can find a list of programs at www.ussa.org.

Most camps I've come across are geared MORE for teens and younger folks than they are for older folks.  The only one I actually attended for a week I think the oldest person there was 20.  I was 17 at the time and there was someone there that was 14, mostly kids about 17-18.

Yeah, our mountain runs a "Christmas Camp" that's open to "outsiders".  Check the Race Team page periodically, I'm sure something will eventually be posted about it.

Awesome, I am 18 from Australia and I love skiing. I grew up for a few years in Japan. There are mountains here too, Mt Hotham for example, which I love. I want to do a ski trip however most of my friends don't ski, and I would never be able to convince them, what with the costs, and everything. I was wondering it there's a place overseas, perhaps in Japan, where teenagers my age and around my age meet and ski together, make friends, and generally have an awesome time skiing? I really want to do a ski trip, but I don't want to ski on my own haha. I'd rather be with people. So what's this place that you know of? Thanks!

Mt Hood Summer Ski Camp is a great camp.

Have you made a decision yet?  I will agree with jzamp that MHSSC is a great camp.  Full disclosure I am biased since I do work there in the summer.  Let me know if you have any questions.

Two year old thread, so our link had changed in the meantime.  Fixed it.  Doesn't help with the NP (new poster -- other guy is probably long gone) and his desire to find a camp in Japan, though.  Tim, I'd suggest you start a new thread for this.
