Mahre Training Center Ski Camp Wrap-up

Deer Valley Resort has been hosting the popular Mahre Training Center Ski Camps for six seasons beginning with 2004-2005 winter. These three- and five-day sessions provide skiing fundamentals and are conducted in part by their creators, Olympic medal winners Phil and Steve Mahre. The Camps were held in Keystone, Colorado, for 19 years before the Mahres approached Deer Valley with a proposal to hold them here.  The venture has proven very successful for both parties.

 We traditionally hold three 3-day weekend Camps (Friday-Sunday) and two 5-day Camps (Monday-Friday) from December to early February; and, this year, we tried a 5-day Camp in December running from Saturday to Wednesday that met with mixed reviews.  Our last session for this season was a 3-day Camp that ended February 10 and had 48 participants.  Our return rate has continuously increased from year to year; and the current economy hasn’t put a damper on our bookings.

 The Camps include six hours of daily instruction by Deer Valley’s top ski instructors, as well as indoor sessions, unique Mahre Training Center progression, a video and other amenities, including skiing with the Mahre brothers, breakfasts and lunches and a closing awards dinner.  The Camps are open to all skiing ability levels, and participants must be 12 years or older.  (Advanced reservations are required; call 435-645-6648.  Lift tickets are included in the price of the Camp.)

 Perhaps our most prominent attendee is a gentleman from Australia who has been coming to our Camps for three years now.  This year he attended three Camps–two 5-day and one 3-day! And his wife attended two Camps. They plan their summer vacation around the Mahre Ski Camps.

 Phil Mahre, who resides in Washington state, recently carried the 2010 Olympic torch in its only visit to the United States for a ceremony at the Peace Arch border crossing in Blaine, WA.  Phil, who won medals at the 1980 Olympics at Lake Placid and the 1984 Olympics in Sarajevo, was cheered by a crowd of several thousand people waving U.S. and Canadian flags and signs with the Olympic rings.

 The success of these Camps takes the dedication, cooperation and hard work of multiple departments here at the Resort.  Thanks to everyone who has a hand in these events, and special thanks go out to:

 ‡  Carolyn Allen and her Silver Lake Lodge staff for room set-ups during the Camps
‡  Jim Bragg and his Race Hill crew for the excellent training courses and fun races
‡  Kris Anderson and her Snow Park Lodge staff for breakfasts and après ski lectures/seminars
‡  The Mountain Operations staff for their superb on-snow operations and assistance
‡  Annie, Vince, Tuck and Suzi at Sharpshooters Imaging for videos and photos

A little too much powder for me! Hope it’s mostly light dusting during ski hours next week, otherwise I’m going to be eating a lot of snow

I was at Snowbird in 1973 the powder was so deep we had to wear something to filter the snow from going in your nose and mouth !
