Each year, the National Ski Academy provides an opportunity for non-NSA U14, U16, and FIS athletes to participate in our training camp in Saas-Fee, Switzerland.  This unique camp is situated in a world class training environment with optimal ski conditions for SL and GS technical training alongside National and World Cup athletes.

The academic class schedule will begin at the NSA in Collingwood on Monday, August 19 and continues in Saas-Fee and includes an academic excursion. Boarding at the NSA from Aug 18 – 23 for those taking classes is available. Six week athlete applications are subject to approval by the NSA Athletic Director.

Simon is home and back to school already, but can’t stop talking about his amazing 2 weeks training with NSA coaches at Saas Fee. Thanks so so so MUCH! He had an amazing time on and off the mountain, and is looking forward to show us his improvement. We are extremely thankful that you accepted him in the camp and coached him these 2 weeks. We also greatly appreciate the care and safety!

I’ve had the opportunity of joining NSA twice in Saas-Fee as well as many times throughout the past two years for races and training opportunities in Canada. Every time I’ve been at the academy as well as with the FIS teams while on the road, all of the teachers, coaches and other staff have done everything they could to help me further my ski racing career; even though I was never actually a student at the school.

This welcoming attitude, along with the stellar training environments that they provide (on and off the hill) are what I think best describes NSA. Not only do they provide students with the best training and schooling to help further their education while pursuing their dreams as athletes; they also make you feel at home. Whether on the other side of the world for a 5 week camp, or simply spending time at the school while away from home; I’ve always felt welcome, and like I had a second family at the National Ski Academy.
