Frequently Asked Questions

Which airport should we fly into and how far away is it?
Monument, Colorado is situated between two different airports, Denver International Airport and Colorado Springs Airport.  Although "COS" is much closer to the rink (30-35 minutes), flights tend to be more expensive.  "DIA" is a great option economically as well as the number of flight options you will have to pick from being a much larger airport.  "DIA" is 60-70 minutes from the facility. 


Event Testimonials

The 7k Adult Getaway was so amazing to not only be taken seriously as an adult skater, but to also be given access to such incredible knowledge through the 7k staff.  I connected with so many wonderful people, learned so much, was challenged, and feel so much more confident in moving forward!  I can’t wait to come back and do it all again next year! 

-          Tracey Zilkie

At the 7k Adult Getaway the pervasive thought was “of course you can”.  That was Kori’s response when I said I couldn’t do a loop jump.  And she showed me I could. In seconds.  Everyone treated us like athletes and artists.  Constantly reinforcing that we are.  They also didn’t coddle us because we were adults of a certain age.  It was a very safe space to try new things and grow our skills.  It was an amazing experience.

-          Scott Davis

The 7k Adult Getaway camp was such an amazing experience and I can’t wait to come back!  The camp was so inspiring on multiple levels!  First, you get to learn from the most talented coaches out there and be respected as an adult skater.  Additionally, being among other adults that are as crazy and passionate as you are about figure skating was heartwarming and exciting.  As a relatively new adult skater, I’ve learned so much more about skating, off-ice conditioning and mental prep.  The camp was extremely well-organized and everything ran so smoothly, it was pure joy!  I can’t wait to go back next year!

-          Gaia Shamis

This camp was a wonderful break from the daily grind and I returned home feeling totally energized.  What a fantastic opportunity to do something I love, for three days straight, with a great group who love it as much as I do!  Everyone at the rink was very welcoming and seemed genuinely excited to have us there.  My goals going into the event were to learn more about the mental aspects of skating, gain some new techniques or exercises to incorporate into practices at my home rink and meet other adults who skate.  I accomplished all of these and more.  I appreciated the dual emphasis on technique and “joy of skating”.  As an adult who skates, I am primarily doing it because I love it, but I also want to push myself to achieve my full potential.  The 7k Adult Getaway was perfect for helping me move forward towards that goal.  I can’t wait to skate with you guys again!

-          Lauren Wojcik

The 7k Adult Getaway is a unique experience where I not only have learned amazing new skills from phenomenal coaches, but I have formed lifelong friends with adults that share the same passion for skating I do.  Every coach is out there to help each and every skater get better and reach their individual goals!  They have pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable of, and I cannot wait to come back next year to learn more!

7k's Adult Getaway is everything I could have hoped for, packaged into a wonderful three-day experience. While the event is geared toward adult skaters, the training we received both on and off the ice could easily have been targeted at elite skaters. 7k's fantastic team of coaches, choreographers, and trainers focused on the various aspects of mental and physical conditioning essential to the success of any athlete, regardless of level. I'm grateful to the 7k staff for their boundless enthusiasm, to the elite athletes who came out to answer questions and show their support for adult skating, and for the opportunity to meet so many other adult skaters just as passionate about this sport as I am over the course of one unforgettable weekend. Next year's event can't come quickly enough!

-          Andrew Sass

7k Adult Getaway is truly a transformative experience not only for the body, but also the mind and soul.  Kori and the staff of top level coaches with their infectious positive energy pushed me to an entirely new level of skating with the combination of on and off ice sessions and mental training seminars!  I also met a wonderfully supportive group of skaters that share my passion.

-          Monika Benitez

Get inspired by a world-class coaching team and fellow skaters! The workshop is a great mixture of on-ice & off-ice sessions and class-room training. From the very first minute (thanks Heather -  I love the binder & practical stuff) you feel the dedication to this event and to Adult Skating. For 3 days, we were a part of this rink and we all shared the love and passion for skating no matter of age, ability or previous results.
