Athlete Mindset

“Freeriding is 80% mental and 20% physical” Reine Barkered, Freeride World Tour Champion.

Our camps go beyond hucking cliffs and skiing steeps.  Our experienced athletes and founder, Rachel Findler, will teach you the athlete mindset that will help you manage stress and fear, especially for competition day.  We want you to be the best and achieve your full potential.  Our Freeride camps teach mindset tools; visualisation techniques, relaxation techniques, breathing exercises, mindfulness and meditations.  All these techniques are used by our FWT athletes to achieve their podium positions.

What else do I need to know?

Location: Nevados de Chillan, Chile.  Nearest airport is Santiago, Chile.
Why Chile?  Chile is one of the most incredible places we’ve skied.  The Andes are the second largest mountain range in the world and Nevados de Chillan offers a huge variety of terrain.  And of course the volcanos!! That’s right, volcanos!!! It is incredible to ski while a volcano puffs smoke next to you.  There are also natural hot springs and an incredible culture and food to enjoy.  The best part. . .  There is no one there. It is an extremely quiet resort with little to no freeriders, so we can put our own fresh lines down and not worry about crowds.
Where will we stay?  Onai Lodge in Las Trancas.  It is a beautiful eco-friendly lodge designed, built and owned by Chilean Pro Freerider, Chopo Diaz.  We are all staying together so not only do you ski with these pros you get to hang out and have dinner together and hear their stories from the FWT.  We will have chefs with us to cook us delicious local cuisine and packed lunches for the hill.
Who are the coaches? FTW Athletes & Champions; Drew Tabke, Jackie Paaso and Reine Barkered.  We also work with local guides and our founder Rachel Findler will make sure all logistics run smoothly.
How many spots are there?  There are 20 spots, and we have junior athletes signed up from all over the world.  It’s such a great opportunity to make lifelong friends from all ski areas of the world.  There are 4 spots for coaches which we offer for Free!!! (If you are a registered coach with the IFSA).
What age and level do I need to be?  18 and under for this camp.  We welcome all Feeride levels. There is varied terrain and a line down for everyone.  Nevados de Chillan is the perfect place for ski touring.  It has super mellow touring terrain so if it’s your first time ski touring it’ll be a great place for you to learn.
What else do I need to know?  This is going to be one of the best weeks of your life!!  Everything is taken care of as soon as you land.  We will greet you at the airport and transport you to the ski resort.  Accommodation, food, ski passes and coaching is all included for $3,900pp.  Flights and insurance not included. For further questions please contact Rachel for an information pack.

Parents! Do you have FOMO?

Why should the kids have all the fun?  We are offering a trip for parents which will run alongside our junior camp.  TGR film star and Freeride legend, Ian McIntosh, is our pro skier on this trip.  He will show you around Nevados de Chillan and help you with your ski technique so you can keep up with your kids!  Stay in a beautiful lodge with a private chef, wine tasting, enjoy the resort and natural hot springs.  Everything is taken care of so you can relax.

Did we mention the Volcano???

Nevados de Chillan is such a special place with these beautiful volcanos.  You can ski right next to it.  Can you see our ski tracks? The other bonus . . .  Natural Hot Springs!!!  You can rest your tired legs in 40degree celsius water.
