Minnesota Olympians share their skiing expertise with the community at a slalom camp sponsored by Midwest Masters.

Minneapolis, MN, December 13, 2013 --( Minnesota-native and two time Olympian Tasha Nelson McCrank will be coaching a slalom ski camp at Buck Hill on December 14th from 7am to 5pm in conjunction with Midwest Masters adult ski racing organization. The camp is geared towards adult skiers looking to improve their technical and racing skills as well as individuals who are interested in getting into slalom racing for the first time. "Shaped skis have made a huge difference in the sport," said Ryan Fuller, Board President of Midwest Masters. "We want to get people excited about ski racing and provide an option for adults to be active and healthy in the wintertime. Ski racing is a great way to remain active in the winter months and to meet new people."

As a participant in the camp, racers will receive a full day of coaching along with video analysis led by Tasha and a DVD of their training that day. Pierce Skate & Ski of Bloomington and the Roseville Area High School Alpine Ski Team will provide participants with the gear needed to participate at no cost, including racing skis. The full day camp is $60/person and registration can be done online at but register early as space is very limited.
