Northstar® Resort is offering one-day Telemark Camps to those looking to learn, improve or perfect their technique.  These all-day camps have a relaxed, student-centric approach where the participants help dictate the direction.

Each level will focus on ski efficiency making for easier, more fluid skiing though level appropriate drills.  Students will be evaluated and placed in groups appropriate to their experience level.  Groups will practice and learn drills, receive feedback, video analysis and a personal program for improvement.  Camps will follow PSIA standards, and copies of PSIA manuals will be provided.


Ability Levels & Clinic Focus

Three levels of clinics are offered.  Group levels determined with a practice run to ensure participants are placed in the right class.

Beginner clinic focus:  Proper stance, weight distribution, utilizing beginner slopes

Intermediate clinic focus:  Enforcing good habits, using the rear ski (inside ski)

Advanced clinic focus:  Skiing any slope, any condition.
