Jackie Wiles (Aurora, OR) has an impressive resume. In the 2016-17 season alone, she nailed the top 10 in two FIS World Cups, including standing on the podium in the Altenmarkt-Zauchensee downhill. Now, the Olympian is hosting her first ski camp, the Jackie Wiles White Pass Summer Race Camp—three days of skills and drills and three days of gate training—at Timberline on Mt. Hood from July 7-13.

Want to attend her camp and learn to ski like Jackie? The camp is offering one scholarship for a young racer.

“I understand what it takes to keep skiing competitively – time, perseverance, physical fitness and a financial commitment that can sometimes be difficult,” said Wiles. “This year at my camp, I wanted to help a kid who may not be able to attend because of financial constraints.”

 

Supported by Directors Mortgage, the camp is an opportunity for young ski racers to gain experience and knowledge both on and off the mountain. It will mostly be focused on skills, drills and gates, but there will be off-snow time where Wiles will focus on helping kids learn to bounce back from bad races, fight for their dreams and learn what it’s like to be a competitive athlete on a global stage.
