Daily Schedule & Final Details - Green/Blue

Postby Diana Rogers » Sun Jan 13, 2013 11:36 am

Hello campers,

Here are the Green/Blue camp daily schedule and details...

Happy Feet:
If you are travelling a long distance to camp (driving, flying, or both) we highly recommend that you wear compression socks for the journey and for your first day or two at camp. Travelling often leads to swelling of the feet, creating a lot of discomfort for the first few days in your ski boots. Wearing compression socks is even more important if you are planning to buy boots or have boot fitting done at camp. You can wear compression hose or special compression ski socks. If you can’t find them near you, you can order them from us on our web store...

Lift tickets:
We are planning that most campers will be getting the group rate tickets through us, at $200/5 days (adults); $175/5 days (ages 61-69); and $35/5 days (ages 70+). (NOTE: the rates may be slightly higher, $5-$15 for the week, if they include Friday as a holiday). Please send us an email by Feb. 1 and tell us which age category of tickets you will need.

Payment:
Most of you are paying by credit card. We will run a tab for you for the whole week so that we only have to process one charge on your card. If you get a footbed and/or alignment installation, they will go on a master bill, along with group lift tickets and incidental expenses (such as books or DVDs purchased during camp). Friday morning we will have a final bill for you to sign (or you can pay by check or cash at that time).

Alignment/Equipment “pre-day” before camp:
If you are arriving early for camp and wish to have your indoor alignment session done prior to camp, we do have openings at our Dumont Ski Shop (halfway between the Denver airport and Solvista; you need to have a car). Please call us or send us an e-mail by Feb. 1 if you wish to schedule an appointment. We’ll call you to confirm the time.

Meeting place in lodge:
The Solvista base lodge is a 2-story building. The cafeteria is on the second floor, and there is a large stone fireplace at one end of the seating area. We’ll plan to meet in this vicinity each morning, as well as eating lunch and watching video here.

Your coach:
Your coach is your central information contact - the “go-to” person for scheduling, questions, etc. Do you have any special desires that you'd like to cover during camp? Tell your coach early on the first day. Wondering what time to watch video? Ask your coach.

Video:
Video is performed on a weather-permitting basis. If it’s snowing hard, we will not video. You will watch video with your coach at lunch, once skiing is over.

Late Arrivals:
If you arrive late on the first day of camp, please go upstairs to the meeting place (2nd floor of lodge). Our camp helper, Greg, will be waiting for you. We have paperwork that you must sign before joining a group. Greg will have lift tickets, if you need them. He will bring you outside and get you hooked up with the coaches.

I received the email information on Green/Blue ski camp. I will need to get the lift ticket. I am 62 years old. I will also need a lift ticket for my daughter who is coming with me. Can I get it through you or do I need to go through the resort? She is 23. Thanks. Marcia Denton
