2019 ALPINE - MT. Hood Camp Overview



Purgatory Ski Team’s summer Camp at Mt. Hood is a great opportunity to get 8 quality days on snow. We see huge improvements in skiing fundamentals in these 8 days on snow. The
environment is a large part of the accelerated improvements. We train alongside U.S. Ski Team athletes, college athletes, and many teams from around the nation. The training focuses on fundamental improvements with a Slalom progression of 4 days and a GS progression of 4 days. There is world class biking in the area including sandy ridge trail system that we take advantage of in the afternoons.

Dry-land activities are mixed in when we aren’t biking, hiking,
fishing, etc. This time of year is also a great opportunity to test gear from all of the major brands to figure out what skis and boots are best for your athlete. This testing is all free of charge. We have a very affordable price structure that includes all expenses including travel,
food, lodging, lift tickets, training lanes, adventure park day, camping nights to and from.

Cost for the camp is around $1,998. This will depend on how many athletes we have to spread lodging and travel costs. We are happy to offer 3 month financing on the camp to help spread the cost out.

Registration will be open the week of April 15, 2019

* We are accepting Scholarship applications, please inquire with Tyler McKnight
