The 2015 Ultimate Camp for Ironman Canada in Whistler BC offers an incredible triathlon experience. Enjoy the spectacular mountain scenery, pristine lakes, and meet like-minded triathletes sharing your event goals – whether it is to finish the race strong or qualify for World Championships in Kona, Hawaii! Learn from LifeSport’s knowledgeable coaches who all have experience both coaching and racing at this fantastic venue!
This is a unique opportunity to receive race specific training – an open water swim in Alta Lake which includes starts, sighting, pace efforts and drafting techniques. Athletes will learn nutrition strategies for long distance racing, bike pacing as well as proper race day equipment selection. The Whistler bike route is felt to be the most challenging in North America - ride the bike course to experience and learn how to tackle the mountain terrain. The weekend also includes a preview of the run course with feedback and guidance that will be invaluable to your preparation!
All lectures are held in The HI-Whistler Hostel, just a short 10 minute drive from the base of the mountain. This isn’t your typical hostel; it is a purpose-built facility that was originally used as part of the athlete's accommodation during the 2010 Winter Olympics. The beautiful building is the new standard of hosteling with all the amenities you'd expect and then some. The private rooms are more luxurious than some luxury hotels and the four-person dorm room almost feels private. You'll never find a better hostel than this one! The onsite cafe Cheaky's serves home-made meals, snacks and delicious specialty coffees. Open from 7am to late daily.

During IMC Camp: $28 for dorm beds, or $76/night for the private rooms
