April 21, 2011 (Bend, OR) — Registration is open to the general public for the 2011 Oregon Spring Camp taking place May 26-30, 2011 (Memorial Day weekend) at Bend/Mt Bachelor, Oregon. Designed primarily as a master/citizen XC ski camp, junior skiers with a chaperone adult camper are also welcome. Due to carefully limited enrollment numbers, this camp is recommended only for skiers at intermediate and above skill levels.
Featuring on-snow morning sessions and a variety of optional events including dryland clinics, an evening training plan workshop, and ski specific physiology lab testing — the Oregon Spring Camp is one of the most unique ski educational events in the world.
Coaching for the camp will be led by J.D. Downing, Coach of the XC Oregon elite team and National Director of the American XC Skiers masters association. Downing will be assisted by a variety of local athletes and coaches.
With over 12 feet of snow base still reported at the 6300 foot elevation and spring Nordic Center operations continuing through June 20 this year, prospects for continued excellent spring skiing at Mt Bachelor for at least the next five weeks look promising to say the least.
Since 2001 Oregon Fall and Spring Camps have gained an international reputation as some of the best ski technique and fitness events in the world. Campers of all ability levels (including numerous National and World Masters champions) annually rave about their progress and information gained at Oregon Camps.
Highlighted by a fun and inclusive atmosphere as well as small group sizes, the goal of every Oregon Fall and Spring Camp is to give every participant the best possible experience to help further their enjoyment of the world’s greatest sport.
As with the traditional Oregon Fall Camp held every December, this year’s Spring Camp event will also offer the ability for campers to name the exact number and sequence of days they’d like to attend.
