Vernon Ski Club will host an exciting event at SilverStar Mountain this week with a three-day Okanagan Speed Camp starting on Friday. This camp has many other ski clubs/athletes registered and will be a progressive speed technique camp for many race levels as they master the discipline of downhill.

For some, this is the ultimate event which they learn (and are allowed) to ski in their tuck and practice their speed techniques. The coaching and volunteering in this event is top notch and will provide for the ultimate speed experience for these athletes which includes a fun race. Spectators are welcome to cheer these speedy kids on.
