Ski Camps Summer 2008 Argentina, Ushuaia & Tignes, France.

Dissent Ski have two camps running this summer.

Tignes – Val d’Isere from the 5th to the 19th of July plus Ushuaia, Argentina from August 30th – September 27th.

Summer is a great time to work on technique, improve your gliding skills on smooth glacial terrain and hone your carving for clean, fast arcs. Summer develops the best foundation for the autumn/winter and maintains your “touch” on the snow.

There will be daily video feedback and a reserved lane for our group – limited to eight skiers. We use either the Grand Motte or Val d’Isere glacier and can ski both GS and SL along with technique-imrpoving free skiing.

A full range of afternoon activities from Via Ferrata*, the cabled Adventure Park*, tennis, football, volleyball, ski specific physical prep, white water rafting* etc are also included.

Accommodation can be arranged, just drop me an email and we can find you a self-catered apartment or B&B/ Half board hotel in Val d’Isere to suit both your pocket and needs. From 100€ per person per week.

Minibus service – we will have a minibus at our disposal for airport transfers on the Saturday, plus travel around resort. A flight arriving midday- afternoon and departing around midday is ideal as it gives us plenty of time either side of the journey.

Transport – 1 week including airport transfer 120€, 2 weeks including airport transfer 170€.

Lift pass – I am trying to secure a discount on the lift pass, BASI license holders will receive a discount upon presenting their BASI card – price TBC.
Course fee – 250€ per person per week. Excellent value for a six day skiing week and we are keeping the price frozen to counteract the change in value of the € – who says Northerners aren’t generous!!!
Insurance! A minimum of Carte Neige is really a minimum. We cannot be held responsible for the weather so insurance is available to cover any costs re lift pass, course fees etc.

* extra costs for these activities re rental of equipment, guide etc.

Argentina, Ushuaia! August 30th – September 27th.

Come skiing and race training to the incredibly beautiful Ushuaia.

Great snow cover is pretty much guaranteed and September is a great time as the resort is quieter with the main holidays drawing to a close. We are also guaranteed a race lane in one of the most stunning ski areas in the world as Agustin Torres, BASI Eurotest opener and ski coach will be helping us out throughout the three weeks. Ushuaia overlooks the sea and has one of the most modern lift and snow-making systems in South America making it the ideal summer skiing destination.

We are looking to create a three week package of accommodation, lift pass, transfers, coaching, video and after skiing sport in the region of – £1800 plus flight to Ushuaia from London Gatwick return which is approx £900.

The aim of the camp is two-fold – race training for competition, Eurotest, Test Technique in the mornings and free-skiing and working on technique in the afternoons. Join us for an amazing time, great skiing and a wonderful adventure as we work hard to give your skiing a serious Latin energy boost!

So £2800 for a three week* long adventure in Argentina with superb skiing, great coaching, 4* half-board accommodation and the trip of a lifetime!

contact – for further information.

**As it is quite a trip to Argentina we are planning on staying on for an extra week so flying back on the 27th of September.
