Treble Cone - Sofa ski camps 2018


Treble Cone is excited to exclusively offer Sofa Ski School - Ski Improvement Camps again after a highly successful 2017 season.

The ski improvement camps have top hand-picked coaches to give you the best help to achieve your goals, to become the skier you want to be. No matter if your goals are improving your carving, short turns, bumps, powder, off-piste skiing or simply being able to ski with more control, we will show you exactly where you are at and how you can make the next step.

The 5 day intensive camp is suitable for intermediate to expert skiers. The minimum requirement is to be able to control your speed doing mostly parallel turns on an easy blue run.
