Trond Nystad, the US Ski Team Head XC ski coach and his co-coaches are busy men these days – coaching, helping and administrating six National A-Team members, five Development team members and six additional ambitious “want to be World Cup skiers”.
We caught up with Trond on September 19th following a two-hour morning skating rollerski workout up Mirror Lake Highway outside Park City:
“Easy skiing in easy gradual uphill terrain was on the agenda. The start point in the town of Kamas was roughly at 6000 feet and the pick-up point two-hour or 30-40 kilometer later at 8000 feet. It was a beautiful sunny, cold morning where everyone understood perfectly well why they have chosen to be cross country skiers”.
