Gear Guide: National Alpine Ski Camp (NASC)
Overview: National Alpine Ski Camp (NASC) is a ski camp with a twist. Train GS and SL in the mornings, and do incredible summer sports in the afternoons. Campers choose from three different after–ski activities each day. Our hand selected coaches are highly trained in ski racing and coaching and have the passion for coaching young athletes in a safe, fun learning environment.
