Vail.  The name says it all.  It is truly one of the most beautiful places on earth.  This is one of our favorite locations.  Park your car (or take a shuttle from Denver Airport), and forget about driving for the entire weekend.  Our hotel, The Vail International is literally right next door to the rink.  So roll out of bed and into your skates.  It is so convenient. And all of our social events are held within the Vail Village, so there is no need to drive.  Take a leisurely walk, or hop aboard the free village shuttle.
This camp features some great social events.  After Thursday night's skate, we will head over to the Altitude Club for a beer and a bite to eat.  After Friday afternoon's session, we will gather poolside at Vail International for a BBQ.  There is a big old hot tub there that tends to be the epicenter of fun.  Have a beer or cocktail while soaking your sore muscles and waiting for the food to come off the grill.  Then on Saturday night we have our camp banquet.  The food and drink are great, but the company is even better.
Have a spouse or family?  Good luck trying to make this trip on your own.  They won't want to be left at home, and with all that Vail has to offer, why not bring them along.  While you are elevating your game on the ice, they can relax by the outdoor pool or hot tub, go for a hike, a mountain bike ride, ride the gondola to the top of Vail peak to enjoy breathtaking views, or just hang out at the restaurants and shops in the villages of Vail.  And of course they are welcome to join us each evening for the social events.

"The entire coaching staff is awesome, the people who come to the Vail camp are awesome, it is like seeing your family.  I have actually been thinking about quitting playing. It hasn't been fun as of late, but this camp really helped me find the fun in the sport again. This is in addition to the new skills I learned which are also invaluable." - Samantha P. - Vail 2014 & 2015

“Coaches are right there when you're not getting it. And, just as important, they will challenge you more if you are getting it. Explanations really make sense. You will definitely leave this camp with more knowledge than you even realize. Warning, those Ah-Ha moments can pop up any time or any place!” – Deke D. - Vail 2015 & 2012

“I liked the fact that the camp focused on skills with a lot of skating and minimal scrimmage time. Being a beginner, I especially appreciated the individual attention which really helped me begin to feel things like outside edges, getting low, extending my legs to get a full stride, etc.  All the little individual pointers and critiques were extremely helpful for me.  Without that, I would have been lost.  The coaches were awesome.  They made me feel comfortable both on and off the ice.  I was impressed with their constant attention to each individual's needs and their willingness to give one-on-one help when needed.  They gave encouragement, direction, and had a sense of humor.” – Marilyn S. – Vail 2015
