Duration: 4 Days

Location: Mount Washington, BC

Course: Science Friction Ski Camp

Calling all intermediate to expert level skiers!

Do you want to go faster… go slower… go left more…. go right more? Maybe you want to carve up the groomers with sweeping arcs or make your turns shorter and snappy. Perhaps you want to shred powder, bumps, trees or steeps? On Section 8’s Science Friction camps you determine the objective… and like mad scientists in a snowy labratory we’ll help you discover your inner ski geek.

Video analysis sessions will help you differentiate your perceptions from reality as our top certified coaches perform a double blind placebo controlled study on your skiing. What ever the terrain, what ever the conditions, through guided experiementation you’ll discover how to best adapt your technique and tactics to the situation at hand.

Don’t worry, it won’t be all talk. There will be plenty of time for guided mileage and pushing your boundaries.

We’ll wind down each day with a little apres ski social with one evening reserved for a nice group meal to reflect on your recent skiing discoveries… and perhaps tell a tall tale or two.
