The Stratton Mountain Winter Sports Club is partnering with Mt. Hood Summer Ski Camp to provide for another incredible mogul training opportunity for our athletes. For over ten years, our Freestyle program has held training camps at Mt. Hood, Oregon. It is one of the premier summer skiing facilities in North America for both on and off snow training.
This year’s camp will include coaches from our own Stratton program, as well as a few special guest coaches. We are excited to announce Tim Massucco will be joining our training program! Tim is a former US Ski Team Member and a Stratton Freestyle Skier himself. Please see below for a full profile of our summer coaches.
To provide for the best possible training programs, we will have a 5-6 athlete per one coach ratio. This will provide detailed attention to individual athletes. That sets the scenario for this fantastic mogul camp opportunity. We will be staying in the newly upgraded and remodeled Collin’s Lake Resort again this summer - this is the finest lodging available in the area.
We have chosen to make Mt. Hood our summer training facility for numerous reasons:
Superb on-snow terrain, private sectioned off mogul lines.
Excellent off hill training including trampoline sessions.
Ability to closely supervise and bond with our athletes on and off-hill!
Proximity to Portland, Oregon for outside training activities - surfing, movies and off site dining!
Mt. Hood, Oregon Summer Camp Dates: June 29th – July 13th
Our athletes will fly to Oregon with one of our coaches to provide for proper supervision. Our coach will leave out of one of the New York City airports, most likely JFK or Newark and travel with athletes to Oregon and will follow the same procedure for the return flight. The minimum age for camp participation is 11 years old.
