While SBSTA camps are tailored to specific age groups and ski disciplines vary, all SBSTA camps strive to promote athletes' love and excitement for the sport of skiing while simultaneously instilling the principles of grit, grace, and courage. In addition to sport specific training, all SBSTA camps incorporate fun, skill-based adventures and events.

We use the latest high-level equipment and training aids to provide the best and most comprehensive training available. On-snow camps incorporate video analysis on a regular basis, and, when appropriate electronic timing --- both of which allow athletes to gain timely feedback regarding their skill acquisition.

Medical issues/concerns
