“It was the second time, the camp was held in Silvaplana and the athletes and coaches were able to benefit from good snow conditions and a great snow park at Corvatsch. In addition to training, the camp had the social component of uniting young athletes from developing ski nations and provided them with a great opportunity to exchange experience. We wish the teams all the best for their competitions as they return home with new skills and techniques”, Martijn Oostijk, FIS Development Programme Coordinator for Freestyle Skiing and Snowboard commented.
