Dr. Kim Hewson, Orthopedic Surgeon, former Director of Sports Medicine at University of Arizona, and a lead Telluride Ski School Instructor, has refined a scientific-based biomechanics approach to ski instruction that has been used internally at the Telluride Ski School for more than a decade to improve the quality of ski school instruction. This innovative biomechanics approach is now available to the public through the Ski Biomechanics Camp.
Nature has designed our body to move efficiently. Learn how to apply that concept to your skiing. The camp uses Dr. Hewson’s innovative approach, including video analysis, in-classroom learning, and on-snow application all focused on efficient skiing using our natural functional alignment.
The Telluride Ski School is the first ski school to create a biomechanics camp available to anyone wanting to improve their skiing ability. Open to intermediate to advanced skiers, participants ski in small ability matched groups with a maximum of four students per instructor. Classes will be structured toward maximum safety for all participants. Couples are welcome to ski together but teaching techniques will be focused toward the less experienced skier.
The Camp is based out of The Peaks Resort & Spa in the Mountain Village where our classroom sessions and lunches will be held. The Peaks is an excellent ski-in ski-out venue which provides preferred lodging rates for our participants.
