Purpose Provide local, early season warmup intensive to kick-start your season laying a great foundation to get the most our of other regional camps. Mission Build a XC community in the Puget Sound from our friends on up. Lodging TBA

Work for Play

This is a community-building effort that relies help organizing, and implementing our clinic, or are are an advanced skier interested in teaching at the Clinic, email Doug at For those of you interested to teach, I offer an Instructor Day clinic as soon as the snow flies :).


No one should be prevented from attending because of the cost. If cost is REALLY an issue (student, unemployed, etc.) register under the scholarship category. If $75 is still too much, email me at


No one should be prevented from attending because of childcare needs. Register your child in the category Kid Care and send me an email at I am requesting $40 child for the two days ($20/day) as a guess for the cost. We are looking into a parallel Kid Ski Camp to be run through the Nordic Center as an alternative.
