A rigorous day on the mountain is balanced by rest and relaxation in beautiful Silverthorne at our luxurious vacation home. We offer a complete lodging package with three meals per day.

As the year-round heart of Summit County, Silverthorne delivers endless outdoor adventure, a thriving arts and culture scene, and the most welcoming residents in the Rockies. Silverthorne sits amidst nature’s playgrounds, statuesque peaks topping out above 14,000 feet, bold rivers with renowned rapids and fishing holes, and hundreds of miles of wilderness.

Take Your Alpine Racing to a New High This SPRING!

Train with some of the most accomplished U.S. Ski Team coaches and athletes at a fraction of the cost of other summer ski camps.  No need to travel abroad when some of the best snow and terrain you can train on is in the Rocky Mountains of Colorado.

Rocky Mountain Ski Racing's spring camps are designed to help U14 – U21 athletes fine tune skills in SL, GS, SG and DH.  Train with coaches proven to develop World Champions and U.S. Ski Team and NCAA/USCSA athletes for five day sessions and enjoy Colorado’s nearby towns of Frisco, Breckenridge, Georgetown, and Silverthorne.

WHY ROCKY MOUNTAIN SKI RACING?

Our coaching staff has years of experience directing and coaching athletes at every level from Olympic and World Cup champions to Youth Ski League.

Crawford Pierce, director of coaching, has been in the ski coaching business for more than forty years and has worked at every level from training young children up to elite athletes on the United States Ski Team.

Crawford is Level 500 Master Coach with the United States Ski Coaches Association. In 1996, he was honored and recognized by U.S. Ski Team and the United States Olympic Committee as Domestic Coach of the Year.

Most people know John McMurtry for his US Ski Team coaching career in the 1980s which resulted in World Cup titles, Olympic medals, and the first and only Nation’s Cup award for any U.S. Alpine Ski team.  John was inducted into the National Ski Hall of Fame in 2014.

We teach the Primary Movement Teaching System progression which incorporates the latest in ski racing equipment and design. Our emphasis during the camps will be on teaching and perfecting fundamental skills and racing tactics. 

Emphasis is placed on teaching alpine ski racing skills in a safe, individualized, and fun learning environment.
