About the Camps

Registration for 2019/20 is open!

Since 1986, early season skiing & training has been synonymous with Sovereign Lake Nordic Club and Silver Star Mountain. Blessed with early snow, exceptional trails and a charming on-mountain village, skiers from around the world and throughout North America travel to the camps to jumpstart the season. Competitive racers, first-time skiers, and everything in between come to enjoy 105km of rolling terrain, professional coaching, and exceptional grooming on the best natural early season snow in Canada.

The Supercamp Weekend

3-Day Weekend Camp

Whether you want to ski more efficiently, glide further and faster, or simply gain confidence on skis, our professional coaches will help you reach the next level.

A condensed version of our 5-day camp, the weekend camp is a great option for those who have limited time but want maximum skiing for the time they do have.

Race Prep Camp

Back by popular demand, this camp targets the experienced athlete looking to gain a nordic edge. If you are an athlete looking to enhance your understanding of cross country ski training and racing, or a loppet / masters circuit skier looking to improve your event experience, this camp is for you!

Coached by some of Canada’s best, the goal is to improve your skiing efficiency, power, and prepare you to participate in the Master’s or Loppet circuit.

Not just for skiers – if you are a competitive cyclist, mountain biker, runner, paddler, or multisport athlete, nordic skiing is an incredible full-body workout for the tough winter training months. Working on that efficiency will help you stay aerobic during those long mileage days.
