Steamboat Springs Winter Sports Club (SSWSC) invites all telemark skiers, who want to work on their racing, to join them for Tele Race Christmas Camp, which will be held Monday, December 27- Thursday December 30. The camp will be “two-a-day” style with morning and afternoon/evening sessions. The camp will use facilities at Mt. Warner and Howelsen Hill. Gate training, Jump, Rap, and Skate training will all be incorporated. The cost is $65 per day plus lift tickets. Participants are responsible for their own lodging, meals and transportation.
