Nordic Center of the Rockies, Steamboat Springs Colorado, hosts the Fifth Annual Steamboat Nordic Camp.  This year Olympian Sarah Konrad will join the top notch coaching staff which includes other former Olympians and collegiate skiers.  The 2-day format is an action packed, fun filled way to kick the ski season.  Catering to all level skiers, beginner to advance (race oriented), the camp  includes 2 coaching session per day (classic and skate technique), 2007/2008 demo equipment available from Fischer, Atomic, Salomon, Rossignal, Swix, Craft, Toko, video analysis clinics, lunch and a fun social hour on Saturday pm.

At 6,700 ft elevation Steamboat typically has excellent snow in December which allows the camp to be held at two different xc ski venues offering beautiful scenery and diverse terrain.   Camp director Emily Lovett says that the camp originally started for the local community in conjunction with a equipment demo-day at the local ski/outdoor shop, Ski Haus.  “Now that and that the word as got around, we’re seeing folks from all over Colorado, Utah and the Midwest.  We’re committed to keeping group sizes small and personal so that skiers get individual feedback that they can take away with them.   We have great coaches – they make this camp what it is.   It’s a fun way to kick off the season, get some good skiing in early and spend of weekend with the Nordic community that all we love.”
