Daily Schedule - Race Camp

Daily Schedule - Race Camp

Postby Diana Rogers » Tue Apr 26, 2011 11:38 am

Lift tickets
We’ll have group tickets for those of you who told us that you need them. We hand out the tickets once, on the first morning.

Payment
We run a bill for each camper for group lift tickets and incidental expenses (such as books or DVDs purchased during camp). Saturday morning before skiing, we will have the final bill for you to sign (or you can pay by check at that time).

Equipment and alignment pre-days:
If you are arriving early for camp and wish to have any equipment or alignment work done prior to camp, we do have openings at our shop. Please call us if you wish to schedule an appointment.

Meeting place in lodge:
The A-Basin base lodge is an old A-frame building. The first floor has seating and the cafeteria. We’ll meet on the 2nd floor (above the cafeteria level) at the back end of the building (closer to the slopes than to the road). We’ll also plan to take a video & snack break in this vicinity each day. Lockers and restrooms are located in the basement of the lodge.

Your coach:
Your coach is your central information contact - the “go-to” person for scheduling, questions, etc. Do you have any special desires that you'd like to cover during camp? Tell your coach early on the first day. Wondering what time to watch video? Ask your coach.

Video:
Video is performed on a weather-permitting basis. If it’s snowing hard, we will not video. You will watch video with your coach at the mid-day break.

Late Arrivals:
If you arrive late on the first day of camp, please go upstairs to the meeting place (2nd floor of lodge). Chris will be waiting for you, wearing a red & silver Harb Ski Systems jacket. We have paperwork that you must sign before joining a group; Chris will have lift tickets, if you need them. He will bring you outside and get you hooked up with the coaches.


Skiing Checklist…
We will be skiing at a high-elevation at Arapahoe Basin. You need to be prepared for weather ranging from warm and sunny to cold and snowing (all in the same day). Dress in layers so that you can remove or add clothing to adapt to changing weather.
