Super Blue - Session 1 - Final Details & Daily Schedule

Postby Diana Rogers » Sat Dec 07, 2013 1:44 pm

Hello campers,

Here are the Super Blue #1 Camp daily schedule and final 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 you 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 prior to 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...

Happy Feet, #2:
Are you flying to camp? Make sure you bring your ski boots in your carry-on luggage! Don’t trust the single most important piece of equipment to the baggage handlers.

Lift tickets:
We are planning that all campers will have purchased one of A-Basin’s multi-day ticket or pass options for camp. (See the Lodging & Ticket Info thread.)

Payment:
We run a bill for each camper for incidental expenses (such as books or DVDs, footbeds, or alignment plates purchased during camp). Friday morning before skiing, we will have the final bill for you to sign (or you can pay by check at that time).

Footbed and alignment "pre-day":
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 (any day except Wednesday, any time) and at Keystone (Sunday, Jan. 5, 6-7 PM). Please call us (303-567-0679) or send us an e-mail by Dec. 25 if you wish to schedule an appointment. We’ll call you to confirm the time and place.

Meeting place in lodge:
The A-Basin base lodge is an old A-frame building. The first floor has seating and the cafeteria. We’ll meet on the 2nd floor (above the cafeteria level) at the back end of the building (closer to the slopes than to the road). We’ll also plan to eat lunch in this vicinity each day. Lockers and restrooms are located in the basement of the lodge.

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.
