On Saturday night before camp, all participants meet at the Mammoth Mountain Inn to register and pick up their camp information packet. Your packet includes a detailed camp schedule, lesson ticket, camp discount card, banquet ticket, and lift pass (if you ordered a lift pass). This will also be your first opportunity to buy raffle tickets. But we keep it fun too! We’ll have complimentary appetizers and a cash bar. You’ll have your first opportunity to socialize with your fellow campers. The Director of the Ski School will be available to answer any questions.
On Tuesday afternoon following camp, return to Main Lodge for a camp happy hour from 3:30 to 5:30 at Tusk’s bar, at the West end of Main Lodge, 3rd floor, directly above the cafeteria. All camp participants and instructors are welcome. See your fellow campers off the slopes, relax, and have some fun. Complimentary appetizers will be provided and we’ll have a cash bar available.
Your group will have 1 or 2 sessions of video feedback with your instructor. This is a great opportunity to actually see what you look like when you’re skiing. You’ll go over where you excel, where you’ve improved, and what you can do better going forward. Video analysis allows you to view your skiing in detail, so you can focus on specifics you may not notice in real time. This gives a wonderful new perspective for any skier, whether they’ve been skiing for decades or are just learning the basics.
All camp participants have the opportunity to participate in timed racing on the final day of instruction. You’ll put everything you’ve learned over the past week to the test, no matter which program you were in. Just like the rest of camp, racing is meant to be FUN for everyone at all experience levels, and it is entirely optional. Let your instructor know if you’re interested in participating and we’ll make sure you make it to the starting gate.
Each participant will receive a discount card at registration, good for discounts during camp week all over the mountain. This includes the Mammoth demo and repair shops at Main Lodge and Canyon Lodge. Campers receive a discount on the newest demo skis and boards for the season, equipment rentals, and all types of repairs including tune ups. You’ll also receive discounts on on-mountain dining.
