At The Bottom Of This Page ALL classic technique assignments for each morning of the Camp will be posted at least one day prior. Please scroll down to the very bottom of the page.
Note: Multiple Campers gave the Camp discretion to assign your classic days and then other Campers picked days to classic so we have balanced the groups. It will really-really-really help if folks stick with your original technique plan because the entire puzzle can fall apart on a given day when we move even just one skier between techniques. 


What do I need to do before any 2022 Spring Camp session?

Item #1 -- Camp Paperwork!
If you already sent your Waiver via email, you get a gold star!

If you have NOT done this yet -- you need to get on this before your first Camp day. PLEASE do not wait until the last second as it can be stressful for Camp Administration (and no one wants that to happen -- right?!).

For 2022 there is just one paperwork item we need every Camper to fill out -- the Spring Camp Waiver

You can scan a signed copy or take a smart phone picture and email that to jd at xcoregon dot org .... please just put your name + Camp forms in the subject line.

Worst case you can bring paper signed copies to your first Camp session (but we really, really, really prefer to be contactless plus paper is a pain to deal with out on the snow!).


Item #2 -- Venue Parking Details & Trail Passes

For folks from out-of-town, you want to aim for the Mt Bachelor West Village lot (last parking lot on the Cascade Lakes Highway before you hit snowbanks -- literally the end of the road). Look immediately on the right for the log cabin Nordic Center. Allow at least 25-30mins in good driving conditions from the extreme western edge of Bend to drive to the Nordic Center. Add time in any type of weather and on weekends for crowds.

All Campers do need to remember to arrange your trail passes BEFORE your first Camp morning. Please remember that your Camp fees did not include trail passes.

It is best to make that purchase on-line beforehand as it will greatly speed up your Camp mornings. You can do this at the Mt Bachelor website....


When and where do we meet for any Spring Camp on-snow session?

WHEN: We meet at 8:45am sharp every morning.

WHERE: We will meet on our skis directly below the Nordic Center pass entrance gate in what locals call "the Nordic Bowl". To get to the Bowl, you ski down a short downhill about 50 meters from the Nordic Center check-in gate. Look for XC Oregon coaches (we tend to be pretty obvious).

--> Note that it will take you a few minutes ahead of our meeting time to put on your gear, go thru the pass gate, and ski down the hill. PLEASE build in enough time to your morning drive that you account for the time it will take to do everything and meet the group on skis in the Nordic Bowl promptly at 8:45am. 

--> If you are late and we have left the Bowl already, go directly to "the Nordic Oval" (ask the gate attendant on duty for directions). If really late (> 10 minutes), you have to find a Camp group (which may or may not be easy). We will not wait for you and the Camp will not issue a refund if you miss our Camp start and cannot find the groups. It is very unlikely we can reschedule you for any Camper that misses our daily start times. We've based all coaches, insurance, etc. around you being there on that precise morning so there are sunk costs for our non-profit. Ye be warned.


Other Camp Notes

--> Each Camp morning we will wrap-up with helper coaches latest by 11:45am. A few groups will need to stay a bit longer to get video shots done assuming you wish to do so (totally optional).

--> Each Camp group may (or may not) take a 5-15 minute break at the halfway point of each morning. The break is at the discretion of the coach and the group (so please speak up if you really need a break or really don't want to take one!). 

--> Mt Bachelor Nordic Center is fully operational with food/beverage, rentals, retail sales, restrooms. But note you cannot count on the Nordic Center access prior to our Camp meeting time. Additional restrooms that are for sure open by 8:30am are available 100m across the parking lot at alpine Guest Services.

--> Each Camp morning we will attempt to take video shots of each Camper. Every Camp afternoon or evening we will attempt to offer a Zoom meeting to review the video footage (exact times will vary and will be TBD each Camp day). We will record the Zoom meeting so you can watch at another time using a pass code. DISCLAIMER: Video and especially the Zoom review is a multi-step process where a lot of things can go wrong. XC Oregon asks in advance for your patience and understanding from all Campers if on any given day the video review doesn't happen or goes awry.

--> Out-of-area campers always ask about places to glide wax for out-of-town skiers. The short answer is that you need to come prepared with your own waxing gear or you need to utilize the services of our two XC Oregon-partnered performance shops (Sunnyside Sports or Webcyclery -- look at our sponsor logos on the left side of this page for links). Neither Mt Bachelor nor hotels or nor shops will have public wax gear for use.
