Camp 1, U16 Development Camp: This three week long camp focuses on fundamental skill development in free-skiing and drill progression, in various terrain and snow conditions in week one. Then moves to event specific skill development in week two. To utilize the progressive gate environment, this includes also access to injected snow surface in moderate terrain. In week three athletes work on refining and adapting skills in a more challenging environment (full length Slalom and GS courses). Racers have the option in participating in SRNZ U16 races.

We use the same training space as we offer the various National Teams training within the TCRA.

Week three consists of full length Slalom and GS training with timing, most of the training session will be alongside the national teams training within the TCRA.Week four is training and race week! The second half of August offers Elite FIS and Continental Cup races in the nearby Ski Resorts (Coronet Peak, Cardrona and Treble Cone) and participation is optional.
