Experience The Haig


Dear avid cross-country skier:

The National Senior Development Team (NSDT) is pleased to offer an exciting and exclusive opportunity to experience summer skiing at the CODA Haig Glacier facility.

The Haig Glacier is located in the Spray Mountain range of Kananaskis Country, and at approximately 2700 m offers excellent summer skiing on around 5 km of groomed track, not to mention breath-taking views all around you. The unique living facilities have been built with special environmental consideration - from solar generators to specialized water utilization and disposal.

For over 10 years, elite ski teams across Canada and the USA - including the NSDT and Canadian National Ski Team have been using the Haig. The ability to ski on snow as well as train at altitude, is a huge complement to summer dry-land training, and has been proven to vastly improve athlete performances. The NSDT athletes will be there - training and living with you. These skiers are among the best in Canada, with goals of succeeding at top-level national, international and Olympic competitions. Your inclusion on this exclusive camp affords you the chance to not only get some on-snow glacier skiing, but to experience the training atmosphere of elite athletes.

Please have look at the details, and call today for more information on how to become part of this "chance of a lifetime" experience.
