14th Annual Superstars Ski Camp
August 5-12, 2017
Ski Portillo, Chile

Aspen, CO. (February 15, 2017) — Professional skier, guide, and camp operator Chris Davenport is proud to announce the dates for the fourteenth- annual Superstars Ski Camp at Ski Portillo, Chile. The camp will take place August 5-12, 2017 and is open to a maximum of thirty advanced skiers.

 

Returning this year to assist Chris Davenport are world-famous professional skiers, coaches and camp veterans Mike Douglas of Whistler, BC and Wendy Fisher of Crested Butte, CO. Decorated freeskier Ingird Backstom of Squaw Valley, CA is welcomed back to her camp coaching position after a year off to have her first child and Superstars Camp is thrilled to announce the addition of world-renowned freeskier of both the competition circuit and ski films Cody Townsend of Squaw Valley, CA. Professional photographer Jesse Hoffman will be capturing the experience with still photos and ski-action video, assisted by Stian and Topher Davenport, Chris’s sons.

 

“The camp is open to all advanced and expert skiers looking to take their skiing to the next level,” says Davenport. “It’s a really fun vibe. We do some drills and work on skills, but mostly we just go out and ski hard in a variety of terrain, and expect to do some hiking, traversing, and exploring in search of the best lines and best snow in South America. We employ a world-class group of ski coaches whose job it is to safely and effectively take you through a progression of technical and mountain skills aimed at improving your awareness and abilities. We have a proven model that after 13 years has delivered nothing but positive results with our guests.”

 

Sitting on the banks of the beautiful Laguna del Inca, Hotel Portillo is surrounded by terrain that beckons skiers from all over the world. Attendees of the Superstars Camp find wide-open powder fields with untracked powder, technical chutes carved into the Andes, a variety of rocks to jump off for skiers looking to log some air time, and pristine lines accessed by short hikes. With the Superstar coaches passing along tips and advice, all of Portillo’s famed terrain opens up to attendees of the camp.

 

“I fell in love with Portillo—the ambiance, the authenticity, the nostalgia there,” says Davenport. “It is all about skiing in Portillo: no shopping, no real estate, nothing! We have had so much fun skiing and coaching amazing people from all over the world in Portillo. The terrain and the hotel make Ski Portillo the perfect environment for improving skiing and a world-class location for this type of ski-week. We have kept coming back for 13 consecutive years because the coaches and I all agree it’s one of the most fun weeks we experience throughout the year.”
