Teck Regional Snow Camp (Kootenay): Panorama Paradise!
Invermere, B.C. - The Teck Regional Snow Camp (Kootenay) that took place on November 24-26th was a first of its kind at Panorama Ski Resort when the Toby Creek Nordic Ski Club hosted 28 athletes from Fernie Nordic, Golden Nordic and Invermere’s Toby Creek Nordic Ski Clubs.
With the skilled leadership of CCBC Assistant Provincial Coach Graham Maclean, the camp focused on athletes 8-14 years of age in the LTAD Learning to Train stages of development. Amongst the skating and classic technique refinement, athletes participated in ski yoga and ski games with an emphasis on keeping skiing fun, encouraging team mates, making new friends, leadership and managing adversity.
The camp was a unique experience for athletes and coaches who were shuttled up and down the ski lifts to the 2450m/8038ft summit of Panorama. Perfectly groomed skate and classic tracks met the athletes that travelled along outback ridge to Goldie Plateau teaching grid and trails. The cross country ski trails and world class vistas provided the athletes with an exclusive environment for technique development and competition preparation.
A huge thank you goes out the Panorama Mountain Resort team whose vision and determination provided an outstanding high altitude cross country ski success. Also, a big thank you to all of the coaches, volunteers, and athletes for making this first camp a success and to Teck Resources Limited for their support.
