PMTS Direct Parallel® Super Blue Camp at Arapahoe Basin, Colorado
This five-day ski camp is designed for advanced and expert-level skiers wanting to learn or improve skiing the whole mountain, whatever the conditions—bumps, powder, groomed, ungroomed, and steeps. You should have at least some experience skiing ungroomed conditions to attend. There will be separate groups for all-mountain veterans, and for those with less experience. Time will be split between groomed and ungroomed terrain according to the needs and motivations of the participants. All participants should want to spend time on ungroomed slopes during the camp. The lessons will focus on efficient technique, with sufficient practice time and personal feedback.
An assessment of your alignment is part of the camp. The on-snow balance assessment will take place during the lesson hours, while indoor assessments will take place Monday through Wednesday afternoons, outside of the lesson times. Any participants wishing to make changes to their equipment as a result of the assessment will be accommodated on a first-come, first-serve basis outside of the lesson hours.
Video analysis will be used to help you improve. There will be a maximum of six skiers per group to ensure significant personal attention. Includes 3 hours of instruction each day.
Boots, Footbeds, and Alignment "pre-day"
If you know that you would like to get new boots, have footbeds made, or if you would like the complete indoor alignment assessment, we encourage you to come to camp at least one day early. This gives us more time to finalize your fit and alignment. Indoor alignment sessions for campers are offered at our Dumont Ski Shop on the days prior to camp. Contact us for more information.
January 23-27, 2017 (Monday-Friday)
approximately 9:00 - 12:30 each day
Lift Ticket Cost
The camp price does not include lift tickets. Arapahoe Basin has many good deals for lift tickets, including season passes. We will send you more information on purchasing your lift tickets when you enroll, or as soon as that information is available through Arapahoe Basin.
We have two social gatherings during camp (Monday and Thursday afternoons) where we meet for drinks and appetizers. Attendance is optional, but we encourage all to come. It's a lot of fun to meet the campers who are skiing in other groups. Dress is casual. More details will be given at camp.
