Snow Sports Training Camps
Welcome to the Big White Ski & Board School
The Big White Ski & Board School offers specialized training programs especially for our destination clients in both a race and/or freestyle environments for aspiring athletes.
Race training starts from introducing gate training, through to developing technically sound turning skills, acquiring the ability to interpret line in a race course, and incrementally adding more advanced skills that raise the competency level of the participating athletes in clear and demonstrable ways. No matter the initial level of the athletes beginning the program, all participants can improve their technique both in and out of specific race settings. The focus on developing the entire skillset of the athletes is an excellent foundation for improved participation at inter-school competitions or domestic club racing.
Our freestyle focused camps are geared to developing an interest and proficiency in the main disciplines of moguls, slope-style, ski/boarder cross and big mountain skiing. Part of the training focus includes improving the complete set of skills necessary to be a better overall skier/rider which nicely corresponds to faster improvements in all the freestyle disciplines.
Our coaches involved with the snow sports camps have international or national certification in the disciplines offered. Each coach’s skill set has been honed from working many seasons and in many cases, coaching back to back seasons in the Northern and Southern hemispheres. During the camps a variety of tools are utilized, including video analysis that ensures an athlete’s development is maximized in a safe and fun environment.
Given the breadth and scope of our coach’s backgrounds combined with the variety of run choices available at Big White, the Snow Sports training camps allow for flexible training schedules in a setting that has the feel of an inviting and intimate resort. With the huge range of terrain, no lift queues, champagne powder, heaps of off-snow activities and resort ambience...no wonder Big White has been named as the 'Best Family Snow Resort' in Canada for years running, as well as a "Top 5 World's Best Family Resort" destination.
