Trusted ski race training since 1984.
National Alpine Ski Camp (NASC) has operated world-class ski race training camps for nearly four decades, including the most comprehensive ski camp on Mt. Hood where we’ve trained more than 10,000 athletes. We cater to all levels of skiers from USAA and FIS-level to local and high school ski teams and young athletes just looking to learn and have fun. We have two primary camp offerings, Summer Camp on Mt. Hood and Fall Camp on Copper Mountain. Mt. Hood is also open to Custom Training options for athletes and teams with coaches and curriculum already in place.
NASC coaches are some of the best ski educators in the country and were hand-selected because of their expertise and passion for coaching young athletes.
