Great snow (if not, they make it)
Great instructors (I’m growing older faster than I can improve)
Great people (the best ones keep coming back)
Great prices (can’t get a better deal, unless it’s for free)
Chris Starczak and her loyal team do all the work
I plan on coming back until my knees give out!
I have been going to Race Camp since 1999. It is the BEST way to start ski season!! You receive EXPERT instruction in small classes for FIVE DAYS IN A ROW!!!! You learn to correct all of your bad habits at the beginning of ski season and you learn good techniques to practice for the rest of the season!! No matter what level of skier you are, from beginner to expert, there is class for you!!!
There is a BIG social aspect to Race Camp, too. I have met some life-long friends at Race Camp!! And I always look forward to seeing all of my “ski” buddies, people I don’t see the rest of the year. Many people come back year after year. Some have attended Race Camp from its inception and haven’t missed a year!!!! It is really fun to catch up with everyone on the slopes, at happy hour, in the Jacuzzi, at the banquet, at a condo party, at a dinner in town, etc. And staying at the Mammoth Mountain Inn, steps away from the slopes, is awesome!!!
If you are looking to improve your skiing/boarding or racing, if you are looking for expert instruction, if you are looking for FUN, come to Race Camp!! You might even find love…..my good friend is now married to our Race Camp instructor from 2001!!!!!!
Come join us!!
I come to camp for the joy of running down a not-too-difficult slope, enjoying the scenery and the scent of pine, appreciating the near-quiet with just the sound of my skis passing over the snow.
And I come to camp to spend time with old friends and to make new friends, to stop thinking about the work and fuss I left at home, and to both relax and challenge myself in new ways.
Finally, I come to camp to make my skiing a little better than it was last year, to work on being braver on the slightly steeper slopes, and to stretch myself—both physically and mentally—a bit more each year.
I look forward to camp every year and spending time with all my fellow “campers”.
