Good Evening Everyone:
Just a quick note to alert you to some changes to the training schedule this week.
1. We will not be skiing gates this week due to the warm temperatures. Course conditions will deteriorate too quickly to allow for a safe training venue.
2. We will.be free skiing in our assigned lanes. The coaches will carefully monitor conditions for safety. The soft snow will give you the opportunity to work on your balance and make subtle improvements to your technical skills before the season closes.
3. We will have two training sessions on Monday:
Pods 10-12 from 3:30-5:30.
Pods 7-9 from 5-7:00.
4. We will have one training session on Tuesday and Wednesday:
All Pods from 5-7:00PM.
Check you email everyday for any last minute changes to the schedule. If the coaches determine that even free skiing is too dangerous, they will cancel practice.
Also, please watch the videos embedded on our website of some recent world cup and world championship skiing. Use the slow motion feature in the gear box to study the video. Especially watch for the angles these skiers create at the ankles, knees and hips. Note how level the shoulders are; how the hands and arms are positioned, and where the chest is positioned as the turn progresses from transition to transition.
See you tomorrow.
PS. There are over 120 video clips from training on Saturday. Be sure to look for your videos and tag yourself.
PSS. The website also has race results from all the races this season as well as wonderful photo galleries from races and training. Thank you to all of your photographers. These athletes are so lucky to have such beautiful pictures of themselves at their fingertips. If you want to download a photo, just click "control" "space bar". You should be able to save the photo to your computer.
