What About Food?

The athletes will be on a full meal plan while at camp but are still welcome to pack additional food. There is also a small general store on the hill where snacks can be purchased.

Going to training camp does not excuse you from your school work. Please make sure to talk to your teachers and find out what you will be missing and if possible bring it with you. Time management is a critical skill for ski racers; best to start working on it now.

Rob and Peter will be setting aside time for homework.
