Alpine Summer Camps - Mt. Hood, Oregon

This summer Alpine program is spending three weeks in Mt Hood, OR. Considering the time that we live in with COVID-19, we were very successful with recruiting 30 athletes to participate over three weeks. This year we used "Day Camp"model, which means that we are not housing, transportation or providing food for our student/athletes. We are skiing with face coverings and are trying to keep social distance requirements. On snow we are working on fundamentals off and on course, we spend hours and hours focusing on proper athletic stance (ankle and knee flexion, hips up and forward, wide stance, etc), use of all four edges, being on down hill ski, quiet upper body, pole plant, etc. We did drills while free skiing, with stubbies, brushes and in gates. In the afternoons we did activities like playing soccer, hiking, Paintball games and mountain biking. We for sure have lots of FUN!!!!

FIS and U16 athletes are coming back home on July 17th and will continue with physical preparation upon return. 

We had a chance to learn more about some of our new PG athletes: Annaliese Fleck, Jack Schaede, Wyatt Hall, Sam Hislop, Carter Louchheim and Dylan Thomas
