Four Major Components That Separate Us
NASC, in conjunction with the Timberline snowcat operators, builds a custom wave track each summer that helps facilitate proper movement patterns for running GS and Slalom courses. NASC is the only camp that invests the time and money to do this because NASC coaches have an understanding of the modern teaching methodology. We understand how to utilize terrain to develop modern efficient movement patterns. The athletes challenge their balance and tactics by running gates and freeskiing in the calculated terrain we build for training.
NASC has a low 6-to-1 athlete-to-coach ratio that allows coaches to address the individual needs of each athlete. Using athlete-centered coaching methods (see /training-methods), coaches can quickly assess the athletes’ motivation, level of understanding, movements, and equipment, and custom tailor a plan for each athlete.
NASC offers MORE DAYS ON SNOW with our 10-day program than other camps do. Coaches build confidence and balance needed to improve fundamental skill development and use fun adventure after-ski activities to do this. NASC athletes can participate in rock climbing, paddleboarding, mountain biking, white water rafting, field sports, mini-golf, and other activities for recovery.
NASC CAMPUS – NASC owns two acres of riverfront property on the Salmon River at the Salmon River Reserve. This is where our lodging is located and many of our after-ski activities take place. The NASC campus is private, safe, secluded, and in harmony with nature, next to a 27-hole golf course in Welches, Oregon. Our campus is second to none.
