Hard work beats talent, when talent doesn’t work hard.
You’ve probably heard that one before, but it is true. Your hard work is paying off. Our training effort this weekend was “wicked” impressive. In spite of the busy Saturday lift lines, the quality and quantity of training was terrific. Our sets were not easier, they required effort, smart skiing and adapting your tactics as you skied. This U14 athlete group just keeps getting better and better. Every one of you has improved your ski racing this season. All of us coaches are very impressed and proud to coach you.
Sunday was another example of how this group just works through its challenges to produce exceptional results. A few athletes came out in the morning for training in the ice and rain. Your efforts inspire us coaches to be creative too. As is typical with this group the ‘what can I work on coach’ positive attitude motivated us to get Stratton to let us set a stubby slalom on Suntanner. It turned out to be a lot of fun and great training. By the end of the AM session I think every racer on the hill had run our course. I mean every U8, U10, U12, U16, and U19 on the hill! You guys our setting a great example. Thanks!
