Taking a total of 53 people, travelling by coaches from both the North and South of the country, along with a van absolutely full to the roof with kit, we all headed out for a five day camp at Snow Word, Landgraaf, an amazing facility we have used for the past three years. Each year has seen the camp consistently grow in numbers.
With such large numbers training this year, the camp benefited from the advantage of been able to effectively take over the training slope. Each day we headed in to 'the fridge' we are able to plan out a training track specifically designed for the needs of our athletes. With athletes from aged 8-23 years old we a had great range of skiers including GB Champions and Welsh & GB Team Members.
This year we had 35 athletes, six coaches, one ton of kit, 17 hours of training time, 105 timed runs, 73,500 gate hits all fitted in to four days. For next years camp we hope to increase disciplines and run a Freestyle and Snowboard camp alongside the Alpine camp - dates are likely to be 2-6th August 2017, make sure you put them in your diary!
