Those skaters that do not end up staying in the Alpine Club can still take part in the camp and can also choose to access meals served at the main clubhouse. Please fill out all fields in the form.

Other Accommodation Options:      

There are also numerous hotel options in the Canmore area.

Camp Outline:  
This camp is geared towards T2T and Junior skaters. Training volume will be adjusted for at least two levels of skater. As the focus will be on longer duration aerobic training please ensure the athletes are capable of at least 90’ bike rides, 2-3 hour hikes, and 60-90’ in-line or dry-land sessions. The intent is for the athletes to enjoy their experience and be challenged. We will be doing 2 sessions each day using these types of activities, and although it is mostly low intensity, it is important that they are not overwhelmed by the amount of training. Coaches and parents please use your discretion for younger T2T athletes. Please contact Mike Marshall to inquire about younger athletes being ready.

Please make sure your bike is in good working order. You can have it checked and serviced at your local bike store. If its condition is questionable, borrowing from a friend or a rental may be a better option. There are bike rental options in Calgary at Sports Rent or at the Canmore Nordic Centre.
