Ready, set, all systems go for Thanksgiving Camp on Bald Mountain
November 04, 2013
Thanks to the largesse and assistance of Sun Valley Company, the Sun Valley Ski Education Foundation’s Thanksgiving Camp promises to be bigger and better than ever.
Now in its third year, the pre-season alpine camp has unprecedented access to terrain (conditions permitting) as Sun Valley Company will open Upper College, Lower College, 42nd Street and Lower River Run to alpine skiers from clubs across the region.
“This provides our club with an excellent opportunity for world-class skill development and training in the early part of the season,” said Scott McGrew, SVSEF’s assistant alpine director. The camp is open to alpine and freestyle skiers U-12 and up, and will run from Saturday, November 23 to Wednesday, November 27.
Training sessions will be broken down by age group and participants will be notified of training times. The cost of the five-day is $500, which includes lift tickets, training and coaching. Lodging with Sun Valley Company and meals are additional.
Camp organizers are SVSEF Alpine Director Ruben Macaya, McGrew and Freestyle/Snowboard Director Andy Ware with assistance from the SVSEF coaching staff. For details on the camp, please contact SVSEF Office Manager Mimi Crocker at (208) 726-4129 ext. 101.
