Many racers enroll in summer race camps at Mt. Hood, OR. The Bear Valley Race Team traditionally has attended the Olin-Lacasse Ski Camp operated by Tony Olin and Josee Lacasse. The program consists of one week sessions, 3 days of SL and 3 days of GS.
We attempt to attend the 2nd or 3rd week as a team, but often times some team members cannot attend with the group and choose a different week. Some racers register for back to back weeks to get more practice.
While Ski Camp is an excellent way to continue to build skill, all athletes should be engaged in some sort of sport or physical activity to keep conditioned, build strength and improve coordination. Sports such as soccer, cross country, swimming, cycling are all excellent in terms of conditioning.
