Overview: BMA’s France camp is for enrolled U16 and U14 athletes, with extremely limited space for invited athletes with admissions interest. Our Mt Hood camp will include many younger prospective athletes, siblings and invitees. Both camps will focus on technical fundamentals, freeskiing and drill courses, and will work through the same progression. Burke differentiates itself on our “Sizing to Quality” initiative, which means that our camps, as with everything we do, are small, selective and of high quality. We apologize that space is very limited!

There is no better way to get a leg up on your rivals than by logging summer miles on your skis or by getting those legs even stronger through a ski-specific conditioning camp.
Mount Hood is calling. So is Whistler. And New Zealand. They all have summer ski camps designed to enhance skill development and acquisition in the so-called “off season.”
Check out our sweet list of summer ski camps from around the world to find the best fit to help you reach all your competitive goals next winter.
Just a short flight from anywhere in the U.S., Mt. Hood in Oregon is a stratovolcano that is home to the Palmer Glacier. Train gates or freeski on the steep upper lanes or the more gradual lower mile at Timberline Ski Area, accessible by two chairlifts, at a maximum elevation of 9,300 feet.
Site of the 2010 Winter Olympic Games, Whistler in British Columbia has summer skiing on the Blackcomb Glacier that is accessible via two T-bars. You’ll ride multiple chairlifts before you reach the snow, but the picturesque download at the end of the day to the resort village makes it all worthwhile.
New Zealand and Zermatt
For more adventurous skiers seeking a cultural experience coupled with a ski camp, opportunities abound on European glaciers and in the Southern Hemisphere, where our summer is their winter. Wanderlusts belong at these camps in Wanaka, New Zealand; and Saas Fee, Switzerland.

OVERVIEW: ELITEAM Conditioning camps are specifically designed for young athletes (ages 8 to 14). ELITEAM’s unique approach teaches these young athletes the importance of sports physiology, sports psychology and sports nutrition. Celebrating its 26th year, ELITEAM is high energy with non-stop action and is all about pushing limits, learning new skills and having fun. ELITEAM’s goal is simple: to develop healthy, confident and complete athletes. SPORTS PHYSIOLOGY- PSYCHOLOGY- NUTRITION: Through its hands-on approach, ELITEAM involves the athlete in the education process. Activities such as rock climbing, ropes courses and race situations will be used to teach focus, mental imagery skills and stress management. Running, agility workouts and ski-specific exercises will be used to understand the body’s physiological functions. And by baking bread, energy bars and other healthy snacks, and nutritionally evaluating a variety of foods, the athletes discover how diet can affect their health and performance.
ACTIVITIES: A wide variety of cross-training activities are used to improve each athlete’s power, strength, balance, agility & coordination. Sample workouts include dryland slalom, ropes courses, rock wall climbing, slack lining, ski-specific exercises, obstacle courses, sand pits, hiking, soccer, yoga, cooking, funky dance, circuits, leg routines, USST exercises, and more.
WHO ATTENDS: ELITEAM is for high-energy kids who love the outdoors and are involved in competitive sports. Many of the campers who attend are young ski racers, but any young athlete is welcome. No matter what sport your child participates in, he/she can benefit from the ELITEAM program. Overall, ELITEAM is ideal for kids who are active, outdoorsy, and love a challenge.
GIRLS POWER CAMP (GPC): In addition to ELITEAM’s classic camps, ELITEAM now offers girls-only overnight camps. This program launched last summer and was a huge success! The GPC sessions, lead by Kelley Lewis and an all female staff, remain true to ELITEAM’s commitment of teaching young athletes about Sports Physiology, Psychology and Nutrition. However, at this camp, these topics are viewed through the lens of a female athlete. Ultimately, the goal is to provide a focused path forward in which the girls can more easily tap into their inner strength and confidence, and are inspired to push their limits with a strong body and powerful mind.
GPC “POWER HOUR” WORKSHOPS: In between training workouts, the GPC program includes “Power Hour” workshops designed to inspire personal growth and promote a positive mindset. The workshops teach skills that will help the girls navigate the challenges of their sport and daily lives with a feeling of confidence and empowerment. Sample topics include Self-Awareness, Stress Management, Women’s Nutrition, Body Image & The Female Athletes Body, Support Networks, and Positive Mindset.
CAMPER-COACH RATIO: Approximately 45 athletes attend each of the World Cup and Europa Cup camps, and a maximum of 36 girls attend each GPC session. A 4:1 ratio of campers to coaches at all camps ensures personal attention for every camper.
WHO RUNS ELITEAM: Olympian Doug Lewis, co-creator of ELITEAM camps, is a two-time U.S. Olympian and World Championship medalist. Doug has been extensively involved in World Class athletics as a ski racer, coach, broadcaster, motivational speaker and spokesperson for over 30 years. He has dedicated himself to passing on his winning knowledge of sports and competition to young athletes.
Waitsfield, VT: ELITEAM’s roots run deep in Vermont. The camps began there in 1991 with a tiny group of enthusiastic campers, and have been growing ever since. ELITEAM’s Vermont camps in July are held on the Green Mountain Valley School campus. All campers and staff stay overnight in the dorms. ELITEAM utilizes the academy’s world-class “Race Performance Center” gymnasium (unlike any other in the East!), soccer fields and ropes courses, along with the Mad River Valley’s extensive trails, fields and mountains for training and activities.
Park City, Utah: ELITEAM has offered camps in Park City for several years now, however, no camps are scheduled in Park City for 2017. Looking forward, ELITEAM plans to return with a Day-Camp option (for athletes ages 10-14) in 2018. When running camps in Park City, ELITEAM partners with the U.S. Ski Team to provide exclusive access to the Team’s Center of Excellence facility. ELITEAM uses the Center’s gym, testing equipment, workout rooms, kitchen and classroom. Every afternoon, the athletes hear directly from a U.S. Ski Team guest speaker to learn about a variety of topics, covering the target areas of Sports Physiology, Sports Psychology and Sports Nutrition. ELITEAM also utilizes the many recreational fields and trails in and around Park City.
East Burke, VT: The ELITEAM Girls Power Camp is held on the Burke Mtn Academy campus. Located in Vermont’s Northeast Kingdom, the school’s new “Ronnie Berlack Center” (a 15,000 square foot state of the art indoor athletic facility, recently named a “U.S. Ski Team High Performance Center”) combined with the campus’s beautiful surroundings provides the perfect backdrop to a powerful new overnight camp experience.

Overview: Welcome to UP Ski Racing where Olympian Uros Pavlovcic takes the next generation to the heart of Switzerland. Uros is inspired to help athletes succeed in skiing as well as in life. Besides excellent training at one of the best resorts for summer skiing, UP Ski Racing also offers a great cultural experience for all its athletes.
Since its foundation in 2004, the Uros Pavlovcic Ski Racing camp in Switzerland has earned itself reputation through its huge success. Besides excellent training at one of the best resorts for summer skiing, it also offers a great cultural experience for all its athletes. The Uros Pavlovcic Summer Camp consists of 10 days of skiing and two recovery days. The glacier Saas Fee is one of the best spots for summer skiing where the various national teams train side by side.
There is no better experience than a ski racing camp in Saas Fee with Uros. Train in the beautiful Swiss Alps next to other national teams. Great location. Unparalled training. Superb coaching. – Thomas & Anne Reinhart There were two things that made the camp so useful for my skiing: First is the terrain. Saas Fee has it all…insane steeps and rolling flats. This allows you to work on all aspects of ski racing. Second is the exposure to talent. You will be training next to most of the European National teams. You will be able to see how the fastest skiers in the world are skiing in person and can put what you see to the test in your own skiing. – Michael Ankeny Uros Pavlocic’s camp is best in class and an amazing experience for our son. The coaching is unmatched and the European travel experience is equally great. The kids are training alongside World Cup skiers from across the globe every day and we have seen our son improve and mature every year at camp. – Brian & Ann Folkman
