What a week! We spent two days freeskiing the powder at Whaleback and despite the chilly temps and wind we had a successful day of SL training on Thursday. We headed over to the Skiway on Saturday and Sunday where we trained GS on Worden’s steep pitch and moved into a gliding drill on the flats. The drill really helped the athletes to understand the importance of rolling with our ankles and being “easy on our edges” on flat terrain.
Sunday afternoon we migrated over to Winslow to catch the second run of the Dartmouth Carnival SL race. It’s a bonus for our athletes to be able to watch racers who are skiing at such a high level right on our very own hill.
With another qualifier approaching this weekend at Whaleback we are surely going to capitalize on our “home hill advantage.”
We can’t wait to see everyone out there on Sunday cheering on our athletes!
Until then, think snow! (It seems to be working! :D).
