Join Us For your best Summer Training Camp ever

Ski better and Train smarter — get better results!

Torbjorn Karlsen and John Aalberg are inviting you to the Cross-Country summer-training
camp we are hosting in Park City and Heber Valley, Utah, from June 12 —
15th. The camp can be done either as a 3-day or as a 4-day camp.
Our goals for the camp is to teach you proper summer training and training zones,
proper roller-ski and ski-walking techniques, as well as covering a few nutritional
elements. We will use video-analyses for the technique sessions, as well as
hold daily lectures on a topic related to the training of the day. We will have
two workout-sessions every day.

This camp will fit any competitive level, since better training and knowledge
is the focus–not competition in training. We expect you will go home with some
very specific ideas for how to train the next three to six months. You’ll
ski and train better and smarter.

During the camp, we will use terrain both in Park City and at the Soldier Hollow
Olympic venue. Come feel the taste of the famous Hermod Hill after seeing the
official Olympic video of your favorite race up the same hill!

About Soldier Hollow:
The Soldier Hollow Olympic venue was built specifically for the 2002 Olympic
Winter Games and was the Salt Lake City Olympics’ busiest venue. Located
about one hour from the Salt Lake City airport and about 30 minutes from Park
City, Soldier Hollow’s trails wind around a terrain-filled bowl located
at about 5500-5900 feet above sea level. During the summer months, the trail
system features a 3.0 km paved rollerski loop, centered around the biathlon
stadium. The venue’s remaining 15 kilometers of trails are all smoothly
graded and mowed for excellent running, ski-walking and mountain biking. Venue
access roads, local roads and separate bike paths provide additional areas for
safe, comfortable rollerskiing. The temperature in Utah in early June is quite
comfortable for training, with dry air and highs generally in the 70s.

Cost: $475 for four-day camp, $375 for three-day camp. Camp fee includes
all Soldier Hollow Trail fees, weight room passes for the camp’s circuit
training session and a dinner. Register before May 10th and get 10% discount!

participate plenty of personal attention and a chance to do some quality training.
This is a premium ski training camp with more hands-on, personal coaching than
you have experienced. This is more like a team training camp than a clinic.
