Everything You Should Know Before Ski Camping with Family

Planning ski camping with kids might seem a catch 22 because there are a lot of things to be considered as it is not a trip with friends, but with the entire family. Extra care is to be taken while choosing the destination of vacation, accommodation, types of activities other than skiing, dates and packing. We all know that ski camping gets better in a bigger crowd of family and friends and planning a trip beforehand is much needed to make the vacation more enjoyable and foolproof.

Summer Ski Camps for Family

So, before stepping out of the house with your family and friends, take into the account the following points:

Decide The Destination

While there are plenitudes of attractive ski camping destinations, one should choose a destination that gives equal importance to kids activities and not just focus on skiing of adults. In a crowd of kids and adults, no one should be left out and people of any age should enjoy to the fullest. With planning the camping destination, it is important to get everyone registered beforehand so that there is no possibility left for eleventh hour rush.

Fix The Dates When Everyone Is Available

As everyone in the family has to join the ski camping, the vacation should be planned wisely so that nobody is anxious to write exams, attend school or show up in office. Everyone in the family can enjoy to the maximum only when they are not stressed for their work or classes and get themselves involved in the activities completely.

Arrange Ski Gears

After the destination and the dates are planned for ski camping, one should not forget to get equipped with skiing gears and clothes so that the entire family enjoys the activities without even missing a moment in arranging them there. Skiing gears can be bought from sports stores ordered online. If one doesn't wish to buy them, these gears can also be obtained on rent for a fixed number of days.

Plan You Itinerary

The number of days that you and your family have taken out should be well planned so that you return with a bunch of good memories. You can spend a quality time with them in those fixed number of days only if each and every day is wisely allocated to different destinations and activities so that you and your family don't return without missing any vacation spot or activity that you and your kids wished for.

So, plan wisely to make your trip a successful one.

I grew up going to NASC every summer and couldn’t wait for my kids to experience it too. It's proven to be just as much fun for them as it was for me 25-years ago! The on-hill experience is top-notch, the coaching staff is wonderful, and the after-ski activities make it the summer camp experience that kids dream of. All of the kids had so much fun, were safe, and improved so much!
- Jody Curtis, Former NASC Athlete and Park City Ski Team Parent
All 3 of my kids have gone to NASC Fall and Summer camps for years. They still attend and absolutely love it! The Coaches at NASC can make any skier, at any ability level, better. The coaches' knowledge of modern skiing and surface preparation is unmatched. NASC coaches really care about each and every athlete and share their passion for the sport.
- Mike Regrut, Parent of Telluride Ski Team Athlete & D1 Racer
NASC was one of the best decisions I've ever made on behalf of my son. His first stay away from family was with NASC at age 11. The experience far exceeded my expectations. The coaches and training are best-in-class. He'll be attending for his 4th year in 2021. NASC is by far his favorite camp and ski training experience. Our ski team now sends multiple athletes to NASC.
- Derek Stagner, Hidden Valley Ski Team Parent & Board President
Brad taught me a lot on the snow! What a wealth of knowledge!
- Sandy Perrins, Stratton Mountain School & Bates College Ski Racer
It’s such an amazing camp. It’s low key enough to make people feel like they belong, no matter their skill level, and has such great structure and such keen coaches - that every athlete will be challenged and inspired to learn. Our family highly recommends the NASC camps! Brad and his team create the type of environment we want for our kids – top-notch athletics, coupled with lots of good, summer fun!
- Tabitha Andersen, Vail Ski Club Parent
Excellent coaches, cover all aspects of technical ski racing. Beautiful wonderland-like campus. Highly recommend for kids from 9 and up.
- Paul Yeh, Parent of Camper / Ski Racer
The NASC camp was such a great adventure for all the campers! The coaching staff is top notch, the training venue and “base camp” were perfect. Tons of fun and very productive all the way around!
- Erik Schlopy, U.S. Ski Team Member & Olympic Bronze Medalist
As a member of the Czech Ski Team, I experienced many organizations and international ski competitions. WithNASC, I saw a different level of preparation and professionalism that fascinated me. Improvement happened naturally as their coaching is based on fundamental development.
- Hana Malotinova, Czech Ski Team
