Mt. Hood Ski Racing Camps
Ski Racing Camps
At Keely’s Ski Camp many of the all female coaches are recently retired from the U. S. Ski Team or are still racing at the highest levels (Olympic, World Cup, Noram, NCAA and FIS). Each day on the hill the coaches offer world-class visuals by training with and coaching the girls. Keely’s camp uniqueness comes from the coaches being able to execute ideal ski technique for athletes to learn from. The 5:1 athlete to coach ratio provides individualized coaching and feedback for each athlete.
Mt. Hood is known as the best summer training and skiing in the United States. The girls will be skiing on the Palmer Snow-field on salted snow to provide firm and optimal training conditions.
Lodging is at the Mt. Hood Academy House located in the heart of the summer ski racing capital, Government Camp. It is a 15-20 minute van ride from the Academy House to mountain. The Academy house, operating as a ski academy in the winter months has six spacious bunk rooms with 28 beds, full kitchen where Keely’s Mom chefs up incredibly healthy meals for the girls, dining hall, gym, tuning room and a video analyses room. It is a two-minute walk into Government Camp.
We also lodge in the Mazama Lodge which is located just off the road on the way to Mt. Hood. The Mazama lodge is a short 10 minute walk to Government Camp and provides the girls a fun, safe, and cozy environment to hang out in after skiing.
Keely’s Mom, Jennifer, cooks well balanced and nutritional meals for the girls. Snacks and hydration are also very important to sustaining energy while at camp. We provide plenty of food and continuously check in on the girls hydration and energy levels throughout the week. Please email us about dietary restrictions and Jennifer will do her best to accommodate.
When staying at the Mazama Lodge three awesome meals a day are provided. Mazama lodge accommodates all dietary restrictions and needs.
If your daughter has a birthday Mom loves to bake so please let us know ahead of time and we can plan a birthday celebration!

Our 13 & Older Sessions have one day off due to the longer session. Off days consist of exploring the Mt. Hood area and giving the girls a solid rest day. We do everything from beach days in Hood River to lavender farms, rafting, and stand up paddle boarding!
Our All Ages Sessions have 5 to 6 consecutive ski days with activities and fun each afternoon.
Following lunch, video from the day of training is provided for each group.
We encourage journaling during camp. Ski journals are an important way to document improvement and coaches encourage daily journaling during video sessions.
