Alpine weekend 12/10
Wednesday, December 7, 2016
Hello Alpine Team,
What a difference a week makes. The mountain operations team has been hard at work making snow. By the weekend they hope to have Nitro, Inferno, Snowdance, and Plummet open!! With the addition of more terrain I would like you to bring your Giant Slalom skis for this weekend-- both days. U10 with one pair it’s fine. All of the coaches have been working with you on athletic position, bending your ankle in the boot, and steering you skis with your legs. This needs to be practiced at slow speeds so you can feel the difference in how the ski works differently and we can then increase the speed. Sunday I will have a pole jumper section set up to practice.
Remember to ask questions and make sure that when you are doing an exercise you feel inside your boot what the exercise is trying to accomplish. If you don’t, please ask your coach and they will help coach you to feel the change in your body. I am looking forward to a great day on the mountain and getting in lots of skiing and Skills Quest drills in out on the snow.
