Note: Mountain Camp 2017 is FULL! Looking forward to some great training!
Join Mansfield Nordic for the second-annual Mountain Camp, a summer training camp in the heart of the White Mountains of New Hampshire!
After an incredibly successful camp last year, we cannot wait to get back to the scenic roads, tall peaks, and winding trails of the White Mountain National Forest for another 4 days of great training and team living. To read a recap and see more photos of last year’s Mountain Camp, check out this post on the Junior blog here.
Participants in this year’s camp should be prepared to summit a good deal of hiking terrain, rollerski some serious distance on the roads, and conquer the slopes of some ski mountains with bounding poles! Updates for 2017 include:
- Increased Lodging We will be spending camp in a larger house than last year, which will allow this camp to host more athletes. Mountain Camp 2017 will be open to the first 13 registered participants. Bonus news? This year’s house is located closer to the site of our intended training sessions, including Attitash Mountain!
- Roomier Transportation We will be renting a larger vehicle this year to not only accommodate skiers but to make for less cramped travel to and from workouts and camp itself.
- New Training Locales Some of the the workouts we accomplish will be similar to last year, such as tackling the Kancamagus Highway on rollerskis and climbing Mount Washington, but you can expect some new challenges and sites as well!
