What has become known as â€œThe Sweden Tripâ€ is gearing up for its 7th summer training tour to Sweden and Norway. It is a lot more than the name implies, and brings special memories to alums from all across the US, from Canada, and of course from Sweden and Norway. It begins with an inspiring dry-land camp with the Solleftea Ski Gymnasium in Sweden , and the chance to work on a daily basis with some of the top athletes on the Swedish National Team. This year the Tour de Ski winner Charlotte Kalla, and World Cup winner Emil Joensson are among the camp staff. The group lives and trains with Swedish athletes of like ages and abilities. This is followed by a week of on snow training at Sognefjell in Norway’s Jotunheimen region.

Participants from J3 — OJ are welcome to apply. Space is limited to 12 athletes. Applicants should be eager about the sport and familiar with it. It is a training trip and the opportunity to make it all part of a â€œHard Monthâ€ is very real. We keep careful track of athletes to make sure the hours and training loads are appropriate to age, and to previous training and later training plans. For this reason we like to know a bit about plans and training histories.
This year’s trip leaves on June 10th and returns on 27 or 28. Flights can be arranged individually according to a group schedule. This allows â€œAir Milesâ€ to be used. We will also have a block of tickets departing from the East coast. We are planning to fly closer in to our final destination this year to minimize the time spent on the road, and maximize the time on the ground.
We have 8 spots on the trip still open and interest is active. If you would like more information, references and an application for the trip please contact Pete Phillips at email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org . You are welcome to phone as well. 802 626 1516 ext. 1010.
