Camp Fortune Ski Club offers athletes aged 16 and 17 years a base program of 15 weeks on snow training. Several enhanced training opportunities allow you to build a robust program to excel your ski racing as far as you wish to take it. Athletes will train at Camp Fortune for the base package, and will have the option to train extra days at larger mountains to be exposed to longer slopes, particularly to improve their Giant Slalom skiing.
