NASC is for everyone! Its a ski camp with a twist. The only requirement is that you love to ski! All ages and levels can come to NASC. We use gates and our wave track to help facilitate fun and skill development for all skiers.
Our Mt. Hood ski camp programs provide ski warm up followed by stance, skills work and free skiing mixed with gate drills and courses. This proven format allows the racers to simultaneously work on fundamental skill development, modern racing tactics and strategies on each run. Each evening ski groups meet with their coaches for a video movement analysis. This process provides NASC athletes with a model and a solid understanding of what to practice during the next morning’s warm-up time.
During each day of training in our Copper Mountain ski camp programs, NASC campers participate in several aspects of ski training. Our gate progressions (of graduating difficulty) and athlete-centered methodology allow the NASC athletes to develop skills and confidence while having fun and running lots of gates.
NASC understands that being a ski racer and having the skills and knowledge to coach are two different paths. We hire only the best and our philosophy is safety, fun and learning…in that order.
FOUR MAJOR COMPONENTS THAT SEPARATE NASC FROM THE OTHER CAMPS
1. NASC has a low athlete-to-coach ratio. Ratio 6-1 allows the coaches effectively address the individual needs of each athlete. Using athlete centered coaching the coaches can quickly access the athletes motivation, level of understanding, movements and equipment. Our coaches then custom tailor a ski training plan targeted at their specific level to facilitate proper changes for each athlete. NASC coaches are USSA/PSIA trained on modern teaching methodology and are not just retired ski racers that do not necessarily know how to coach or teach.
2. NASC in conjunction with the Timberline snow cat 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 the understanding of the modern teaching methodology. We understand how utilize terrain to build modern offensive/ attacking movement patterns to facilitate modern movements skill development.
Our camp in Ausria also provides wave track training.
3.NASC coaches understand the importance of cross training to build confidence and balance needed to improve fundamental skill development and use fun adventure after ski activities to do this. NASC athletes go rock climbing, wind surfing, mountain biking, white water rafting, play field sports, golf and hiking for recovery, re-generation and fun!
4. NASC CAMPUS. For summer camps NASC has 2 acres of river front property on the Salmon river at the Salmon River Reserve for camp. 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. For the fall camp at Copper Mountain NASC secures our own set of condos at the Copper Mountain Inn, slope side (ski in -ski out ) with a private tuning room in the heated garage
