Obertilliach. The team will be based out of two hotels (Gasthoff Andreas and Hotel Weiler) in town, with U23 and junior athletes splitting up into their respective age groups for this pre-camp. Matt will be the junior head coach and Pat the U23 head coach, and both will work together as trip leaders. On January 26th the team will move its operation to Tarviso (Hotel Haberl) where both teams will join forces under the same roof to get after it for race week. Get fired up!
