NZSIA SKI Professional Development Camp Course Outline

Professional Development Camp
Course Outline
Professional Development Camps are run over three days and are open to all NZSIA members,
full and associate. The purpose of these camps is to work on individual member’s ski technique
without exam pressure. A maximum of 1:8 trainer / participant ratio allows for excellent
individual feedback. These camps are ideal for anyone who is looking to improve their skiing
using a combination of coaching and mileage.
Daily Procedure
The days start at 9am when we meet at the designated meeting area at the bottom of the
mountain. Meeting locations are as follows:
Coronet Peak - Outside on the café Deck near the clock
Treble Cone - Base of the six-man chairlift
Mt.Hutt - Outside at base area on snow uphill of café near the ski racks
Turoa - Outside Café at base area near the ski racks
Whakapapa - Outside Café at base area near the ski racks
Closed Days
If the mountain is closed gather at the designated meeting point at 9:00am. An alternative
arrangement of another mountain in the region or indoor session will be organised. Due to closed
or delayed start days, the guidelines may be adjusted to create the best result for the situation.
If the mountain opens during the day we will try to get up the hill but this is sometimes
impossible due to transport issues. Please have your equipment off the mountain in case another
mountain is used. Meeting locations are as follows:
Queenstown - The Station building (corner of Camp St and Shotover St)
Wanaka - Cardrona town office (same road as supermarket)
Methven - Mt Hutt town office
Turoa - Ohakune Club 71 Goldfinch St Ohakune
Whakapapa - National Park School
