Attention ALL GPST Ski Racers and Non-GPST Athletes.  Our Thanksgiving Camp will begin on Friday, November 27th with our first day of our annual Thanksgiving Camp.  The GPST Thanksgiving Camp is open to all teams and athletes (U8-U19) throughout the Midwest.  The Three Day Thanksgiving Camp will begin each day at 9 AM and end each day at 4 PM.  The cost of this year’s Thanksgiving Camp is $60/Day (the fee does NOT include lift ticket).     NOTE:  The CAMP is FREE to registered current GPST Members.

Campers should report to the GPST Learning Center at the West End of the Granite Peak Ski Area each morning.

It is OK if you are unable to make all three days, but it is important to get back on your skis as soon as possible.  NOTE:  We will be skiing on our GS Skis if you have SL and GS Skis.
