Why spend your holiday vacation sleeping until noon and playing video games all vacation? Instead, join us at Crystal Mountain to work on your giant slalom, slalom plus gateless training. Dan Janowiak is the head coach for the Northwestern Alpine Ski Academy and invites racers ages 8-18 to join him at holiday camp in December. Skiers can choose pre-Christmas and/or post-Christmas sessions.

The holiday camp is a day camp but Crystal Mountain is a great family ski resort for siblings and parents. Many types of lodging are available through Crystal Mountain. The Race Camp is working on an arrangement with Crystal Mountain for participants in the N.A.S.A. holiday camp to receive discounted lodging. Watch for more info on this.
