Discover How to Transform Your Fear and Truly Enjoy Your Ski Experience

This camp will get you out of any rut, so you can be the best athlete and person you can be

Join Kristen for this non-threatening, fun and powerful weekend to learn first of all, exactly how to deal with fear and anxiety, such that it no longer holds you back.

Next you experience her fascinating 4-step process to access flow states, transforming your ski experience dramatically.

Expect to be totally blown away, excited about skiing in new ways you never new possible, and free from former trouble areas not just in skiing, but also relationships and career.  Expect to leave armed with exact tools to keep these results around in a permanent way. This is a life changing experience. Money back guarantee if the camp doesn’t offer all it promises and more.

$649, camp price only, small group, 10-4 each day. Note this camp is not about taking risks or stepping out of your physical comfort zone. We are engaged in a facilitated dialog while on slope, and you ski terrain only to the level of your ability.

Available for intermediate skiers (meaning: groomers are no problem) on up to pro or even Olympic level skiers. Telemarkers also welcome. Note: Alas, Alta does not allow Snowboarders. All genders, 15 years old and up. Younger than 15 considered by request only.

This targeted, ultra-effective 2-day ski camp is for you, if you feel any of the following:

  • that your skiing is compromised by too much fear or anxiety
  • excessive fear or anxiety in other areas of your life besides skiing
  • emotionally held back by a past injury or accident
  • like you’ve stopped progressing at skiing or something else, or have even digressed
  • fearless in one area of your life, but not in another

Or, conversely if you feel:

  • just fine, but know you can do better
  • like there’s something emotionally missing in your life
  • numb, emotionally detached, or lacking aliveness
  • like you could use a jump start to the next level of your development
  • ready to stop merely existing, and truly come alive

Learn about Fear and Flow from a World Class Athlete
Kristen was named the best female big mountain extreme skier in the world, a status she kept for 12 years. Known for enormous cliff jumps and you-fall-you die descents (none of which you’ll do during camp!), she became sponsored by the likes of Red Bull, Ralph Lauren, and Nikon. Her mastery of other danger sports including paragliding, ice and rock climbing, kiteboarding, adventure mountain biking and flying trapeze also gained her the outdoor industry vote as most fearless woman athlete in North America, beating all danger-sports stars, not just skiers.

Retired as an athlete since 2003, she then spent 16 years going to the next level — studying intently with a Zen Master. This, alongside facilitating tens of thousands of clients into high-performance states, has led her to be a thought leader on sports performance mindset, getting into the zone by choice rather than by chance, whole mind thinking, aliveness, embracing change, emotional intelligence, spiritual intelligence and more.

Kristen’s transition to fear/anxiety expert came in 2012, the day she realized so many issues -including under-performing, insomnia, PTSD, panic attacks, excessive anxiety, depression, excessive anger, irrational fear, indecisiveness and more- can be permanently resolved once we address our misguided relationship to fear.

Her Amazon best seller book: The Art of Fear: Why Conquering Fear Won’t Work and What to Do Instead, is an industry game changer, and her remarkable work has been featured in Tim Ferriss’s Tribe of Mentors, the Megyn Kelly Show, The Wall Street Journal, New York Times, Outside, Forbes, USA Today, MindValley, NPR, over 150 podcasts and many more.

Working with her live is a most remarkable experience, not to be missed.

Oh, my God. It was incredible. Literally zero actual advice about skiing, and my skiing is probably 40% better, and it was seriously the best weekend of my entire life.

Event Breakdown

Finally Free! On The Mountain

    Don’t spend another moment held back, when such a camp exists

    This adventure may seem to last 2 days, but expect the effects to last a life time.

    It’s a comfortable experience throughout. You will not be skied into exhaustion, nor will you be expected to ski anything above your ability.

    We have three different ability groups for you to  sign up for, divided into groomers-only, all-mountain slower, or all-mountain fast.  Now, you can change groups at any time.

    Saturday Morning, Meet 10 am inside the Goldminers Daughter Lodge at the base of the mountain. 

    Lifts open at 9:15 am. Feel free to be on the mountain and take runs before our 10 am start. Then, indoors we go, to engage in a dialog that will completely change your perspective on what it means to be an athlete, and a human being.

    At noon, armed with this fascinating perspective shift, now the skiing begins. Aside from a lunch break we will ski, explore and play around with this until 4 pm. Expect multiple ah-ha moments, and expect stuck places to be addressed and resolved.

    From 4-5 pm, we finish back indoors to decompress, allowing you a chance to ask Kristen questions about what you just experienced.

    Today’s schedule is the same as Saturday.

    Caveat being; if its a powder day, we may reverse the indoor/outdoor time to instead ski in the morning while the snow is fresh. (Note: 50-50 this will happen. In 2019 Alta reported fresh powder approximately 53% of all days they were open!)

    As for what we explore, today is completely different. While yesterday was about getting unstuck, now we access our best possible selves and learn how to express who we are as individuals on the mountain and in our lives, in some truly magnificent ways.

    4-5 pm, we finish indoors, where Kristen helps you integrate all you’ve experienced, and answers your remaining questions. She will also provide for you exact action steps to take so the amazing feeling you have is also available, anytime you like.

Now it’s your turn

Each hour you attend this camp is a step-by-step, personalized journey that is not a one-size-fits-all experience. Everyone attends for different reasons, and everyone including you, due to the nature of Kristen’s facilitation style, will find exactly what you came for. We’ve never not seen this happen.

If you have troubles with fear or anxiety, she’ll help understand exactly what the hold back has been, which has likely been under your radar for far too long. Plus she’ll offer you clear, revolutionary solutions to address and resolve that hold back, that will shock you in their simplicity. It’ll all make such sense –you’ll wish you had attended this camp years before.

If you’ve long desired to be the best athlete you can be, you’ll be amazed at what you learn and what it takes to get there.  Learning how to be the best, from the best will leave you marveling: could it be that simple? Never mind the enhancement to your athleticism too, this camp will also enhance your relationships and career in an equally effective way.

So, join us this year. Fascinating, enlivening, plus spending time with the others guests alone makes it worth attending. The whole experience will be the highlight of your winter, maybe even your whole life, and help you see and experience yourself, skiing, the mountains, others and life itself in new and profound ways.

And, if you aren’t satisfied with the camp, you get your money back. We do not want to keep your money unless it offers you all it promises and more.

So here’s how it works:
STEP 1 : Click the Add to Cart button, then checkout using our secure checkout page
STEP 2 : You will receive a welcome email, including request for information on what you hope to get out of the camp, so Kristen can plan with your needs in mind
STEP 3 : Make amenity preparations to attend, including booking airfare, lodging and lift tickets (note, camp price is for the camp only)
STEP 4 : See you soon for this amazing adventure together!

Here’s everything you get when you enroll:

2 Day Ski Camp - Mindset Only

Sign up now. Because she only offers one of these per year, this camp will sell out.




    Amazing, awake, alive people such as yourself (otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this) who are in themselves, inspirational. We tend to attract those folks committed to being the best they can be, and who want to live the highest quality life possible.

    Every winter day tens of thousands of ski lessons occur around the world. There also exists thousands of ski camps or adventures, often run by former pros.  Almost exclusively, such gatherings are focused either on socializing (and taking a picture with the former pro), and/or technical and physical skills. The same goes for lessons or camps in other sports as well.

    The Art of Fear Camp however, is not in the same category. It’s not about where to plant your pole, how to finish your turn, etc. This type of instruction has its place for sure- but past a certain point too much form / technique training keeps you stuck in your head or can hold you back from your potential.

    It’s also not about fraternizing with Hall of Fame skier Kristen Ulmer.

    Instead, this is about the bigger game. Kristen considers her ski career mere training for who she has become now. Add to that, most athletes admit sports are 90% mental (and the other 10% is mental too). Given this, at The Art of Fear Camp, Kristen’s draws from her 33 years of real world experience on what it really takes to become good at the sport, and translates that into a facilitated experience you can personally draw from.

    And, there are no lectures. Your lessons will be embodied experiences as you quickly move into accessing the mental game, and then take a huge step beyond to access, embody and express other forms of consciousness you may not even know exist.

    It truly is a transformative experience that also spills over in fascinating ways to your life.

    Which is why USA Today calls Kristen’s camps the only of it’s kind, any where in the world, in any sport.


    USA Today called Kristen’s the only camp of its kind in the world, in any sport. Attend and you’ll know the answer to this question (wink).

    The camp caps at 25 people total, including guides.

    We will all ride the lifts together and share in the mindset facilitation with Kristen as a group. When you ski down though, that’s when you’ll separate into your like-ability group. On average, each ski group will be 4-6 strong, with no more than 7. You’ll have a guide with you to make sure you don’t get lost- as you ski terrain which stimulates and/or suites your ability.

    Then we meet at the bottom for the next run all together, and the next facilitated mindset experience with Kristen.


    There are usually three levels of skier in attendance. If you can ski groomed runs with confidence, you’ll have a place. There’s also a middle ability group that skis the whole mountain but likes to take things slower. Read below for info on the fastest group.

    Nope. These camps are open to professional level skiers and several big name pros have attended. These camps initially, were even built for elite athletes such as yourself. The level of the highest group is always all mountain, fast and strong.

    Also consider coming to Alaska- which is for experts only. It’s not a camp, but a chance to ski with Kristen just for fun. She does not charge you anything for this experience. Only you pay for your seat in the heli.

    You have two options: you can ski 5 hours per day which includes skiing before the camp starts plus skiing through lunch- with on-slope facilitation from Kristen for a little over 3 hours in between. Or you can ski only when Kristen is facilitating on-slope, 3+ hours per day.

    The historic Goldminers Daughter lodge at Alta, Utah is an optimal place to stay. Book early though, as they sell out. You’re also welcome to commute from elsewhere at Alta, or from Snowbird (1 mile away) Salt Lake City (7-14 miles away- specifically Cottonwood Heights is closest) or even Park City (40 miles away).

    Lift tickets are not included in the camp price. You would need to purchase a two-day pass.

    No. Unless it’s a requested private-hire, Kristen offers unisex camps only.

    These camps are attended my mostly adults. Kids age 15 and up, however, are welcome to attend. Kristen has been known to allow mature younger kids in as well, with adult supervision.

    Alas, Alta doesn’t allow snowboarding, and this is the only location we’re offering camps this year. You can however, hire Kristen privately, which is also a fantastic experience.

    No. This camp is not therapy. You will not have to share anything about your life. You can also be a wallflower and mostly observe, if that suits you.

    Yes. While Kristen’s training is in Zen, this camp offers no philosophy. It’s instead, a journey into your undercurrent to get clear about where you’re currently stuck, a chance to get unstuck, and a chance to fully access who you are meant to be. If you’re religious, your tradition will feel honored, whatever it may be.

    This is not a new age program. Kristen takes steps to avoid that kind of presentation. Based on ancient wisdom traditions and the evolution of that wisdom, we don’t sing Kumbaya, we much prefer dirty jokes.

    If you’re slightly injured but can still ski- you may want to modify your inclusion to ski only on the groomers, and/or ski a shorter day.

    We don’t like to turn anyone away who can’t afford to attend. Given this, write us an email explaining what you can afford to pay (note, for the camp only, we cannot provide amenities like lift tickets or lodging) and let’s talk about it?

    Of course! All of Kristen’s training’s have a 5-week, no-questions-asked guarantee.
    If you attend in full and aren’t happy for any reason, just let us know and we’ll give you your money back. We obviously don’t think it’ll come to that, but if you’re even the least bit worried whether this will work for you, let us put your mind at ease. Either you’ll get the results you want or you get your money back. It’s that simple.

    5-week money back guarantee. If you experience the camp in full and it doesn’t offer you all it promises and more, send us an email and you’ll get a full refund.
