Methow Nordic Ski Camp
17 - 20 December, 2015
It has been another interesting year in the Methow. And as the hills are dusted with snow this morning, a welcome relief from the fires, it is time to start thinking about the 2015-16 Nordic Ski Season!
The fires continue to impact so many in our community. Two summers in a row of heavy fire seasons take their toll, including the lives of those fighting these fires. The natural beauty, and ease of access to it, in the Methow, drives a large portion of the economy. Our camp is an important event in the Methow Valley We work with many local organizations to pull this camp together; we hire many local coaches; and most importantly, we bring many passionate visitors to the valley. We strive to make your experience an excellent one, and encourage you to share your experiences with your families and friends. We thank you for your continued passion for this place we all love, and a sport that helps define it.
The dates, you ask? Thursday, December 17th through Sunday, December 20st. What a great way to kick off your holiday ski season! Registration will again be with SkiReg.com and will open on Sunday, September 20th. Click here link to go directly to the registration page.
We're getting our ski industry reps lined up, pulling together our fabulous coaches, and of course, have our incredible venue at Sun Mountain Lodge reserved.
For those new to the camp, there is a lot of information contained on this site, please check out the FAQs and by all means, let us know if you still have questions.
Our camp has a lot of something for almost every skier; whether you're a beginner to the nordic world, or you've been skiing for decades and are looking for increases in efficiency and improvements in technique, we've got a group to fit your level of skiing. More information regarding camp begins here and continues with the FAQs.
The Sun Mountain Lodge is a beautiful setting for the camp, with excellent lodging options and convenient access to the trails, and fabulous dining options for your evening meals. (Breakfast, lunch and snacks are included in the price of camp.)
The Methow Valley Nordic Ski Camp is put on in conjunction with the Methow Valley Nordic Club. We are a non-profit organization with the primary purpose of supporting nordic skiing in our community. The money we raise from this ski camp supports our annual giving budget, which includes providing coaching, equipment, and racing supplements for the Methow Valley Nordic Junior team, free and reduced-cost events to our members, and a co-effort to build out new MVSTA Trailhead kiosks.
You do not have to be a member of MVN to register for the camp, but your membership helps further leverage our funding efforts. Members' benefits include many events at reduced costs, some are even free, as well as our 4x a year newsletter. For only $25 an individual or $40 for a family, membership is a bargain. If you join in the process of registering for class, you'll save $10.
So, we're excited about the upcoming 2015-2016 ski season and Ski Camp and hope you are as well. We look forward to seeing you in December. Stay tuned to this website for additional information regarding camp, like the finalized camp schedule.
We look forward to seeing you soon!
