Hope everyone is enjoying some time off this week,
Congratulation to all the World Cup Teams and to Norway for winning the Gold. It is always fun to race at Stratton in front of a great supportive crowd. We did take video of the racers and you can find them on Sprongo. I apologize in advance for the second run video as I did not realized there was a “draw” button on the video camera, which I hit by accident, so there are scribbles on the video☹. Please find the videos at this link: https://sprongo.com/playlists/157963/68183/t
Friday Training: 9:00 - 11:30am and 12:30 - 2:30pm. Training. Please remember that you must RSVP through the on Thursday.
Saturday and Sunday: This weekend our focus will be on improving technique. We will work free skiing and in courses, pressuring the outside ski earlier in the turn, while keeping contact with the fronts of the ski boots. The snow conditions should be great, so skiing in the woods may be a good place to be on a crowded weekend, which is comparable to slalom training.
A Few Notes:
· Please ensure that the athlete skis are kept sharp. If they are not sharp the athlete loses confidence as they slide around the race course and the mountain. It is much easier to go faster in a race course if you know your skis will hold. Most of the shops in the area have a seasonal sharpening program which is much more economical.
· Please ensure that your athlete is dressed warmly and have hand warmers, (if necessary). Dressing in multiple layers is the best way to keep the athletes warm.
See you on the Mountain,
